Practices to Mitigate Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) Affected Pavements at Airports

The focus of this report is on current practices for mitigating alkali-silica reaction (ASR) in affected pavements at airports. Some concrete pavements commonly used at airports are susceptible to the destructive effects of ASR. Given the substantial initial investment required for pavement, airports are interested in using mitigations to slow the effects of ASR. This study is based on information acquired through a literature review, survey results from 19 airports participating in the study from a range of geographic locations and airport categories, and personal interviews with representatives of several airports. The results of the literature review and survey along with case examples representing interviews with airports known to have experienced ASR on airside pavement facilities are presented.
