Alkali-silica reaction (asr) is a concrete degradation phenomenon in which the alkalis that are typically found in portland cement react with certain amorphous or micro-crystalline siliceous phases in the aggregate and, in the presence of moisture, form an expansive gel that is capable of cracking the concrete and generating macroscopic. Alkali–silica reaction alkali–silica reaction is the deleterious chemical reaction between some siliceous minerals in the aggregate and the alkalinity of the concrete this produces an expansive gel after the cement has set, which then causes internal pressure leading to expansion and cracking of the concrete. Alkali-silica reactions asr is a reaction between alkalis,na 2o and k 2o (found in cement or added to the concrete),and reactive, siliceous mineral components.

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.
The thesis also gives some general recommendations for performance testing alkali–silica reaction (asr)—performance testing cement and concrete research. The term alkali-silica reaction is somewhat misleading-the reaction itself is actually between the hydroxil (oh-) ions in the pore solution and certain siliceous components of the aggregates the alkalis, specifically sodium and.
