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 Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

The ultra-accelerated mortar-bar test (AAR-2) has been widely and successfully used as a screening test to identify aggregates that are potentially alkali-reactive. However, there are exceptions; some aggregates that, though alkali-reactive according to both field experience and concrete prism test results, do not show as such in the mortar-bar test. Trials carried out by members of RILEM TC 191-ARP have established that these aggregates include carbonate materials.
