Repair of Concrete Structures Affected by ASR and
DEF
Research
A number of research projects are currently being
funded to develop methodologies for repairing
structures suffering from deterioration due to
alkali-silica reaction, delayed ettringite
formation, or both processes occurring
simultaneously. Methods being investigated
include
Facilities
Faculty
Students
  • Use of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer wraps
  • Use of coatings and sealants
  • Use of lithium

Sponsors
The research includes field and laboratory
studies. The various projects are being funded by
Texas DOT (through collaboration with the
University of Texas at Austin) and the U.S.
Federal Highways Administration).

Preventing ASR in the Reconstruction of Mactaquac
G.S.
Research
The concrete structures at Mactaquac Generating
Station in New Brunswick are suffering from
alkali-silica reaction (ASR) and will likely have
to be replaced sometime around 2030. A research
project is currently underway at UNB to determine
methods for preventing ASR in the new structures.
Preventive measures being investigated include
Facilities
Faculty
Students
  • Use of supplementary cementing materials
    (particularly fly ash from Belledune Generating
    Station in New Brunswick)
  • Use of low-alkali cement
  • Use of lithium

The research includes field and laboratory
studies. The project is being funded by New

Effect of Fly Ash on the Sulfate Resistance of
Concrete
Research
Concrete containing high-calcium fly ash is
vulnerable to sulfate attack, but in some regions
this type of fly ash is abundantly available and
represents a valuable resource to the
construction industry. This research is aimed at
improving the sulfate resistance of concrete
containing high-calcium fly ash and elucidating
the mechanisms control the performance of fly ash
concrete exposed to sulfates. The project
includes the following studies
Facilities
Faculty
Students
  • Monitoring performance of concrete in cyclic
    (wet/dry) and static sulfate exposure tests
  • Chemical and mineralogical study of a wise range
    of fly ashes
  • Mechanistic studies using scanning electron
    microscopy and x-ray diffraction to determine the
    quantity and nature of reaction products

Durability of Concrete Containing Calcium
Aluminate Cement
Research
One of the applications for calcium aluminate
cement (CAC) is in the production of fast track
repair materials. A study is currently underway
at UNB to determine the durability of CAC
concrete under aggessive conditions including
marine exposure. The study includes the following
activities
Facilities
Faculty
Students
  • Measuring chloride transport rates and
    permeability
  • Determining chloride binding isotherms of CAC
  • Monitoring performance of CAC on UNB Exposure
    Site and Treat Island Marine Exposure Site
  • Microstructural study of CAC with and without
    siliceous admixtures

This project is being funded by Kerneos
(manufacturers of CAC)
