Alkali-aggregate reaction has been studied since the mid 1930s after the discovery of alkali-silica reaction (ASR) by Thomas Stanton of the California Division of Highways. A conference series devoted to understanding reaction mechanisms, testing methods, prediction, diagnosis and repair has been active since 1974 with a total of 15 conferences. The next conference is scheduled for 2020 in Lisbon.
This website provides the first known web presence to consolidate and make available all of the previous ICAAR Conference Proceedings in electronic format.
The website is currently maintained by Dr. Jason H. Ideker who is a recognized expert in AAR test methods, mitigation and diagnosis and prognosis of field structures undergoing alkali-silica reaction. He is a Professor at Oregon State University. He can be contacted at: [email protected].
