Description

Provides guidance on understanding, identifying, preventing, and mitigating alkali-silica reactivity (ASR) in fresh and hardened Portland cement concrete airfield pavements. Version A deletes Chapter 8 of Appendix 1 to remove all reference to the dilatometer test protocol. The test protocol may be reinstated when fully developed.

Revised guidance will be provided in the future. For additional guidance and technical information on identifying distresses in airfield pavements, see the current version of AC 150/5380-6, Guidelines and Procedures for Maintenance of Airport Pavements.
