AbstractThis paper constitutes a review of eight years of research on the alkali-carbonate rock reaction by the Division of Building Research, National Research Council, Ottawa, Canada. Most of the material has been, or will be, published elsewhere. A summary is given of the original Kingston case which first revealed excessive expansion in concrete resulting from alkali-carbonate reactivity in a dolomitic limestone coarse aggregate. Further field studies are described, as well as investigations into the nature of the reaction, methods of test and identification, and some hypotheses concerning the mechanism of reaction and expansion.
