Alkali-Silica Reactivity Workshops

The FHWA has announced the development of an Alkali-Silica Reactivity Workshop to accomplish the following objectives:

  • Presentation of the overview of alkali-aggregate reaction (AAR) (both alkali-silica reaction (ASR) and alkali-carbonate reaction (ACR)),
  • Summarize the available methods to prevent and mitigate ASR-induced damage in new construction and existing structures,
  • Discuss and recommend test methods and specifications related to AAR, and
  • Provide case studies of AAR-affected structures, including rehabilitation strategies

Please see the attached workshop flyer for more information. If you are interested in hosting a workshop in your state or would like additional information please contact Gina Ahlstrom by email at email hidden; JavaScript is required or at 202-366-4612.
