The adverse effects from reactions of reactive aggregates in concrete dams are well known worldwide. The mechanisms ruling alkali silica reactions (ASR) are partly but not fully understood. A majority of the Swedish concrete dams are so far considered to be protected from ASR due to the common use during the 50:s, 60:s and 70:s of the Swedish low alkali cement Limhamn LH. Today there is a discussion if it still is possible to develop ASR after very long time in dams with reactive aggregates and… CONTINUE READING
