Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The 14th International Conference on Alkali-Aggregate Reaction (ICAAR) is scheduled for May 20-25 in Austin, TX, marking the first time since 1978 that it is being held in the United States. This conference was first organized in Denmark in 1974 and has grown tremendously, evolving into a quadrennial conference that hosts over 200 attendees from all over the world. Initially focusing on the mere identification of deleterious alkali-aggregate reaction (AAR), ICAAR has broadened to include highly detailed analysis, merging civil and structural engineering with materials characterization, physics, chemistry, applied mineralogy and computer modeling. Session topics include mechanisms of AAR, prevention/mitigation methods, case studies, and repair and rehabilitation.
