Petrographic analysis shall always be the first step in the assessment of the potential alkali-reactivity of concrete aggregates as stated in RILEM AAR-0 entitled, ‘Outline Guide to the Use of RILEM Methods in Assessments of Aggregates for potential alkali-reactivity’. This RILEM method specifies a general procedure for the petrographic examination of concrete aggregates, to identify rock types and minerals that might react with hydroxyl ions from the concrete pore solution. The method… Expand
