Extract from CP2004 Code of practice for foundations: 7.5 Bearing capacity and test loading 7.5.1 Bearing capacity of a pile. The bearing capacity of a pile is dependent on the size, shape and type of pile and on the properties of the soil in which it is embedded. The ultimate bearing capacity is the load at which the resistance of the soil becomes fully mobilized . . . Dennis Waite

Mr Phillip Reece has now written seeking a better understanding of the practical options open when the alternatives are described simply as brick and timber. He points out that: Verulam

Expansion of Concrete Due to Alkali-Silica Reaction

Expansion of Concrete Due to Alkali-Silica Reaction

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.
