Development of an Ultra-Accelerated Test to Evaluate ASR Potential in Concrete

Alakali Silica Reaction (ASR) is a global concrete durability problem with a complexity that continues to plague Wyoming. A simple, expeditious way to identify reactive aggregate, cement, and an appropriate mitigation measure does not exist; recent research shows promise of a week-ling test to evaluate combinations of coarse and find aggregates. This proposed test has the potential to replace the year-long concrete prism test. The primary goal of this project is cost savings by producing durable concrete with an extended service life.
