This study covers the development of a material Performance Assessment Tool (PAT) on concrete durability by simulating of Alkali Silica Reaction (ASR) deployment. Performance models oblige a multi scale approach from micro to macro level studies. PAT-ASR aims to combine the tasks of guidelines on ASR prevention, performance testing on reactive aggregates, multi-scale material modeling in a comprehensive integrated tool. This project involves experimental studies, among others including the determination of mechanical properties of ASR gel. A computational model, in conjunction with the already developed Lattice Models, will be used for simulating crack patterns in a concrete matrix. Final support tool will provide a guideline for engineers on ASR conscious design.
