Polymer action on the alkali-silica reaction

The alkali-silica reaction (ASR) in concrete progressively transforms silica minerals into an alkali-silica gel with hygroscopic properties, which can expand significantly due to hydration and crack both aggregate and surrounding cement paste. Due to the extent and severity of ASR-related durability problems in concrete structures, continuous improvement of existing preventive solutions and development of novel approaches are required.
