Simplified Model for the Transport of Alkali-Silica Reaction Gel in Concrete Porosity

Abstract

In this work, we focus on estimating the proportion of gel created by Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) in concrete that can enter the Interface Transition Zone (ITZ) surrounding an aggregate at a given pressure. We consider the gel as a non-Newtonian fluid following a Darcy law with a threshold pressure gradient while invading a porous medium. We show that at equilibrium, the mass of gel that penetrates in the ITZ can be considered as proportional to the pressure surrounding the aggregates while the ITZ is not full yet, and then constant once the ITZ is full. This is fairly consistent with the common use of a "connected porosity" in the models dealing with mechanical features of ASR to estimate the volume of gel lost in the porosity. We also study briefly the kinetics of this process and the influence of the gel compressibility.
