    Progress in the Evaluation of Alkali-Aggregate Reaction in Concrete Construction in the Pacific Northwest, United States and Canada By Fred H. Shrimer1 _____ 1Golder Associates, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Introduction. This chapter is the third of a series dealing with chemical reactions of aggregates in concrete. The first version, enti-tled “Chemical Reactions,” was written by W. C. Hansen and included in ASTM STP A, published in It dealt with several types of chemical reactions known at the time to occur in concrete, including alkali-silica by:

The alkali–silica reaction (ASR), more commonly known as "concrete cancer", is a swelling reaction that occurs over time in concrete between the highly alkaline cement paste and the reactive non-crystalline silica found in many common aggregates, given sufficient moisture.

This reaction causes the expansion of the altered aggregate by the formation of a soluble and viscous gel of sodium. Alkali-silica reactivity in five dams in southwestern United States [ - ] Stark, David.

The alkali-silica reaction though not true is described as a concrete cancer. A human cancer, if untreated is terminal, whereas the alkali-silica reaction and the expansion it induces, if untreated, eventually stops.

One of the leading causes of premature concrete failure.Alkali-aggregate reactions can be either alkali-carbonate reactions (ACRs) or alkali-silica reactions (ASRs). In ACR, the reaction is between the alkalies (sodium and potassium) and certain carbonate rocks, particularly calcitic dolomite and dolomitic limestones, present in some aggregates.

In ASR, the reaction is between alkalies and certain siliceous rocks or minerals, such as opaline chert.
