Project description

The objective of this research will be to investigate the hypothesis that clay content plays an overarching role in alkali-carbonate reactive (ACR) expansion and deterioration. This study will determine the effect of clay content on alkali-carbonate reactive dolomitic limestone listed in the Louisiana's Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD‰Ûªs) Approved Materials List (AML).
