Answers the question if high-performance concrete is susceptible to alkali-silica reaction. The paper contains details on the alkali-silica reaction mechanism and the factors influencing it as well as an overview on available test methods (ASTM C1260 and C227). Besides an abstract the fulltext is available as PDF (24 pages, 1.3 MB).

Comparison of measurements from five types of concrete rheometers (four of them are commercial available). The aim was to provide data to establish correlations among them.
An overview of the tests that are commonly used to measure the rheology of fresh concrete and methods to predict the flow of concrete from either composition or laboratory tests. Materials Science of Concrete VI. Proceedings, 2001.
Rheological tests on cement paste were used to successfully select the type and dosage of mineral admixtures that improved concrete workability.
Comparison of results investigating the hydration process in cementitious materials. Methods used are ultrasound, scanning electron microscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
The ease of placement of concrete depends upon at least two physical properties, the yield stress and plastic viscosity. Currently the most common field test is the slump test, and it is related only to the yield stress. Therefore, a simple field test method intended to provide an evaluation of the two Bingham rheological parameters, yield stress and plastic viscosity, was developed. Description of apparatus and test procedure.
A test method and test apparatus is presented. It does not measure the length change but measures the stress generated by the swelling of the gel. The force required to prevent expansion is measured over time while the specimen and frame are immersed in a solution of 1-N NaOH at 50°C. With some test results.
A collection of three-dimensional data sets of hydrating cement, Plaster of Paris, and common brick material, all obtained using x-ray microtomography at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility in Grenoble, France. Each data set includes a description of the sample, the raw 3-D data, and several two-dimensional images extracted from the raw data. Also included are several C utility programs useful for exploring these datasets.
