Most research has been devoted to the efficacy of slag with an alkali content of less than 1.0% and this is reflected in guidance documents. A comparative assessment was made of the effect, if any, of the alkali level of ggbs on potential alkali-silica reactivity. Expansion tests were performed on a matrix of concrete mixes using Irish normal Portland cement, two slags of differing alkali content, three aggregates and alkali loads of 5 and 6 kg Na2Oeq./m(3). A replacement level of 50% was used throughout. No significant difference in behaviour was apparent, irrespective of aggregate type or alkali load, indicating that the alkali level of the slag is not a contributory factor at the 50% replacement level.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Journal:||Construction and Building Materials||Volume:||19||Issue:||9||Start page:||661||End page:||665||Copyright (published version):||2005 Elsevier Ltd||Keywords:||ASR; ggbs; Mortar bar expansion test||Subject LCSH:||Slag cement
