RAPID TEST METHOD FOR EVALUATING POTENTIAL ALKALI REACTIVITY OF AGGREGATES BY AUTOCLAVING TREATMENT

In order to reduce the testing time for evaluating the potential alkali reactivity of aggregates in less than one week, a rapid test method using autoclaving treatment of mortar bars is examined. The effect of various testing conditions was investigated on aggregates with various kinetics and several reactivity characterization criteria were tested. About 50 samples of aggregate were tested under set conditions. Correlation with the mortar-bar method, chemical test is discussed. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 871351.
