Overview

Overview

  • Alkali Silica Reaction

  • Previous Work

  • Deicer Background

  • Tasks

  • Schedule

  • Testing Programs


Alkali silica reaction

Alkali Silica Reaction

  • Chemical reaction between alkali and hydroxide ions in pore solution and reactive silica in aggregate

  • Reaction produces gel

  • Gel adsorbs water and swells, causing expansion and cracking of aggregate


Affected concretes

Affected Concretes

Highway pavement and bridge abutment in Peoria, Illinois

Concrete anchor for cable-stay bridge, Royal Gorge, Colorado


Effect of supplemental cementing materials

Effect of Supplemental Cementing Materials

  • Fly ash, slag, silica fume, metakaolin all reduce expansion by replacing cement, lowering alkali concentration

  • Effective replacement level must be determined for specific material

PCA


To prevent asr

To Prevent ASR

  • Recognize and avoid susceptible aggregate

  • Use low alkali cement

  • Use supplemental cementing material


Previous work

Previous Work

  • Tech Notes

  • IDOT work

  • UIUC Testing

  • Recommendations to OMP


Tech notes

Tech Notes

  • #9 – Freeze Thaw Performance of Coarse Aggregates

    • Recommended Use of IDOT F/T list

  • #10 – Summary of IDOT & ASTM Specifications for Coarse Aggregate Gradation

    • Described CA Gradations for Use at OMP

  • #20 – FAA Concrete Materials Specification Evaluation

    • Recommended Material Guidelines for OMP


Idot working group meetings

IDOT Working Group Meetings

  • Working with Industry to develop ASR specification

  • Slowly introduce a statewide specification (June 2006)

    • Special provision on job specific basis (Dan Ryan Project using GGBFS)

  • Only District 4 (Peoria) showing evidence in pavements of ASR currently

    • Other districts have reactive aggregates however

  • Developing List of Fine Aggregate Producers

    • Proposed Four Categories of Aggregate Reactivity

    • According to ASTM C 1260 Test Results

  • Allowing mitigation according to ASTM C 1567


Uiuc asr testing

UIUC ASR Testing

  • Aggregates selected from Chicago market

    • 5 natural sands and 1 manufactured sand

    • Ottawa sand and Pyrex glass


Uiuc asr recommendations

UIUC ASR Recommendations

  • Two categories of expansion rather than three (<0.1% and >0.1%)

  • No maximum alkali content for cements (due to potassium in deicer)

  • Allow contractors to use ASTM C 1567 to make a combination of aggregate, cement, and mineral admixture that yields expansion less than 0.1%


Mitigating asr testing

Mitigating ASR Testing

  • Test Mineral Admixtures

    • Test for potential combinations to mitigate against reactive aggregates, use ASTM C 1567 test method.

    • Use fine aggregates previously tested and combine with mitigating materials, such as fly ash and slag, to test for decreased expansion.


Mitigating materials test program

Mitigating Materials Test Program

  • ASTM C 1567

    • Class F Fly Ash

      • 15%, 10%, 5%, +/-

    • Class C Fly Ash

      • 15%, +/-

    • Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag

      • 20%, 25%, 15%, +/-

    • Silica Fume*

      • 10%, +/-

    • Metakaolin*

      • 10%, +/-


Background on potassium acetate deicer

Background on Potassium Acetate Deicer

  • Non-chloride based deicer

  • Non-toxic, Biodegradable and less corrosive

  • Lowers freezing temperature (-76o F)

  • Also anti-icing agent (prevents freezing)

  • Avoid use with non air entrained concrete, galvanized metals, and non-watertight electrical systems


Tasks

Tasks

  • Conduct literature review

  • Select representative fine aggregates

  • Survey/test deicing chemical

  • Test selected samples for ASR using ASTM C 1260 modified to simulate potassium acetate solution

  • Test mitigating materials for effective level of replacement according to ASTM C 1567

  • Obtain concrete cores from pavement using deicer

  • Examine cores for possible alkali-silica reaction

  • Recommend materials for OMP pavements

  • Write final report at end of project and Technical Notes as necessary throughout the study.


Schedule

Schedule


Potassium acetate studies

Potassium Acetate Studies

  • Modified ASTM C 1260 tests

    • Work done by Prasad Rangaraju, PhD

  • pH and Chemical Composition

Rangaraju et al 2005


Modified astm c 1260

Modified ASTM C 1260

  • Compare 14 day expansions between NaOH (left) and PA (right)

Rangaraju et al 2005


Mortar bars and concentration

Mortar Bars and Concentration

  • Concentration of 6.46 M is what is applied to pavements

  • Expansion accelerated so much tests ended due to severe cracking and warping of mortar bars

Rangaraju et al 2005


Deicer testing program

Deicer Testing Program

  • 5 natural sands tested previously

    • Test in deicer solution and compare expansions

  • Test mitigating mixtures from ASTM C 1567 results

    • Test in deicer solution and compare expansions


Assistance from omp

Assistance from OMP

  • Obtaining cores from pavements at Midway and/or O’Hare

  • History and understanding of deicer use so far in Chicago

  • Open for discussion
