Paper Title:
Migration of Cations in Mortar under an Electrical Field Controlled by a Constant Current Density
  Abstract

In this study, an Accelerated Lithium Migration Technique (ALMT) was applied to simultaneously drive alkali out and lithium into concrete as a remedy for alkali-silica reaction (ASR) problem. The mortar specimens used in the experiments contained 2.0% Na2Oeq. Constant current denities were applied during the ALMT testing process. The anolyte and catholyte solutions consisted of LiOH.H2O and Ca(OH)2, respectively. The results show that there are a well correlated linear relationship between the applied current density and the steady flux and migration coefficient of the Li+. During the process of ionic migration, K+ was first removed completely from the specimen, followed by Na+, after which the Li+ flux remained steady. The system resistance initially decreased, and then increased gradually. The time corresponding to when the Li+ concentration in the cathode/Li+ in the source cell was equal to 0.1% indicates the time-span needed for Li+ to penetrate throughout the specimen. Furthermore, the accumulated charge carried by the cations and the accumulated charge applied during testing showed a similar in all test cases.
