T7  Alkali Silica Reaction Degradation in Nuclear Concrete Structures

In this session, speakers will describe the current research on the effects of alkali silica reaction (ASR) degradation on the structural capacity of nuclear concrete structures. The speakers will present research to date on ASR effects on structural capacity being conducted at NIST, summarize findings on concrete degradation with a focus on ASR at the International Workshop sponsored by OECD/NEA/CSNI, ASR research sponsored by DOE/EPRI and the ODOBA concrete degradation research being conducted by IRSN, France.
