THE ALKALI-AGGREGATE REACTION IN BELGIUM . REPORT OF THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE SEMINAR ON ALKALI-AGGREGATE: THE EUROPEAN DIMENSION, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON SEPTEMBER 1990

For many years, the prevailing opinion in Belgium was that alkali-aggregate reaction (AAR) was not occurring in concrete structures. However, during the past four years, AAR has been identified as a possible cause of cracking in bridges, and about twenty structures ranging in age from 6 to 28 years have been investigated. The results of case studies, and structural effects of AAR are presented. The remedial and preventive measures used are outlined, and the research carried out is described. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 833057. (Author/TRRL)
