The Appraisal and Maintenance of Structures with Alkali-Silica Reaction

The damage to concrete structures from expansive and disruptive alkali-silica reaction (ASR), which first became apparent in the UK in the late 1970s, necessitated the development of new inspection, testing and appraisal procedures. These were brought together in the 1988 IStructE report Structural effects of alkali-silica reaction, interim technical guidance on appraisal of existing structures. This has been substantially revised and updated in the 1992 Technical guidance to incorporate recent research and the practical experience in the use of the 1988 report. J.G.M. Wood and R.A. Johnson
