Correspondence on Expansion of Concrete due to Alkali-Silica Reaction by D.W. Hobbs

Mr I.P. Gillson (M) (Central Electricity Generating Board): I draw the attention of specifying engineers to the need to -study carefully the September 1983 draft ‘Guidance notes’ when dealing with particularly vulnerable structures -consider the relevance of tests on mortar prisms and cubes to the risk of ASR damage -consider the scale effects of concrete samples on the risk of ASR damage -examine evidence from concrete that has been damaged by ASR
