Information on the development of alkali-silica reaction (ASR) damage in the UK, the chemical process of ASR, and the diagnosis and assessment of expansion and cracking of concrete.

Data derived from research presented at the 8th International alkali-aggregate reaction conference held in Kyoto in 1989, and additional field experience of the problem. The information is in three parts:

  • ASR - the process and its effects

  • Assessment, appraisal and monitoring of structures

  • Research needs

Guidance on the appraisal of strength and serviceability of ASR-affected structures is also given, in addition to advice on the management and monitoring of affected structures. A summary of test procedures is also included.
