Alkali-Silica Reactivity of Aggregate - Concrete Prism Test
  • Publication no: AGBT-T702-20
  • Published: 20 January 2020

This Test Method determines the susceptibility of aggregate to an expansive reaction when mixed with cement in a concrete mix. It measures the change in length of concrete prisms containing the aggregate under investigation.

This Test Method is not suitable for assessment for Alkali Carbonate Reactivity, which occurs less commonly than the Alkali Silica Reaction.
