Over 200 RILEM Technical Recommendations have been produced by RILEM Technical Committees. Many of these recommendations have been adopted in research and practice, and are used by international standardisation bodies, as a basis for their work.
All RILEM recommendations reflect the state-of-the-art at the time of publishing. Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

Initial work by RILEM TC 191-ARP (and its
predecessor TC 106) concentrated on the assessment of the
alkali-reactivity potential of aggregates, but, in recognition
that damaging expansion involves interaction between all
the main components of a concrete mix, more recent
investigation has focused on the evaluation of particular
mix combinations. After consideration of a wide range of
existing and proposed methods for the alkali-aggregate
reactivity (AAR) assessment of aggregates, TC 191-ARP
initially concentrated upon the preparation of three
procedures: petrographical examination (AAR-1), an ultraaccelerated
(mortar-bar) expansion test (AAR-2) and an
accelerated (concrete prism) expansion test (AAR-3). Work
has continued on an ultra-accelerated performance test for
concrete (AAR-4) and also specialised procedures for the
assessment of carbonate aggregates (AAR-5).
A recommended scheme for the integrated use of these
assessment procedures has now been developed, including
some preliminary advice on the interpretation of their
findings. An outline of this draft scheme is described in the
following sections and the principles are illustrated by the
flow chart given in Fig. 1.
