The literature dealing with the expansion of concrete due to alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is reviewed and experimental work currently in progress at the Cement & Concrete Association is described. It is shown that concrete containing a reactive aggregate and a UK cement is unlikely to exhibit deleterious expansion due to ASR if the alkali content of the concrete, expressed as equivalent Na20, is less than 4 kg/m3.

Colloquium: The Childhood of Prestressing. The Childhood of Prestressing - an Introduction

The subject of prestressing covers a process that is relatively new and the inventor and chief protagonist of which died only 20 years ago-Eugene Freyssinet. Indeed, the major innovations in prestressed concrete, and the notable structures that have resulted, have come about in the last 40 years or so; the ‘childhood’ will therefore deal only with a short time-span, up to about 20 years ago.

Part 2. Construction

Foundations The piers of the main spans are founded on cast in situ cylinders which were constructed in open excavations except at the main tower pier no. 3 where a temporary cofferdam was required. The abutments are founded on precast concrete piles. Ismail. I. Al-Bayah and D.J. Lee
