Research overview:
In order to inhibitate the alkali-aggregate reaction, the addtion of the zeolite to the aggregates were studied. The expansion ratio with respect to andesite(100%), andesite(95%)-zeolite(5%) and andesite(80-90%)-zeolite(10-20%) aggregates indicated 0.250, 0.022 and 0.010%, respectively. We conclude that the expansion of the concrete was inhibitated by the holding of the Na cation of the zeolite.
