Example text

Three types of alkali-aggregate reactions are mentioned in the literature: alkali-silica reaction,1701-1721alkali-carbonate reaction, and alkalisilicate reaction. The alkali-silicate reaction has not received general recognition as a separate entity. Alkali-silica reactions are caused by the presence of opal, vitreous volcanic rocks, and those containing more than 90% silica. The alkali-carbonate reaction is different from the alkali-silica 48 Concrete Admixtures Handbook reaction in forming different products.

These problems could largely be avoided if the preformed bubble reservoirs could be added in the form of particles. Two inventions have used this principle. The plastic microsphereslgll and porous particles[g21 which have the required air are added to concrete. It has been shown that addition of particles, which correspond to less than 2% equivalent air, is similar to conventional air-entrained concrete containing 5% air. Control of the right size and spacing of air pockets in these particles can add to the effectiveness to frost action.

Maximum dilation effects are observed in solutions containing 59% NaCl. The explanation is that the vapor pressure of the saline solution is decreased (with respect to water) and the 50 Concrete Admixtures Handbook tendency for the water to migrate from the smaller pores will be lower for the saline solution in comparison with that for pure water. Consequently, on freezing, greater dilation will occur in the salt-containing specimen than in the salt-free specimen. At high salt concentrations, other phenomena, such as a change in the range of freezing temperatures or the effect of high viscosity of the saline solution on the mechanical properties of the body, have to be considered.
