The alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is a long-term deterioration process, which produces a hydrophilic and expansive gel causing damage. The ASR acts on concrete as an ageing phenomenon, modifying the material on the basis of its stress state. Focussing on the mechanical degradation of concrete, estimated trends for the mechanical properties in...

In this paper the anisotropic behavior of ASR swelling is simulated through a 1D smeared crack model. The choice of the engineering properties is discussed, in particular for the evolution of the tensile strength and the Young’s modulus during the swelling. The last one is used as the main indicator for ASRrelated damage. The model is hampered...
