Hydration Properties of Shotcrete with an Accelerator Based on Calcium Aluminate
A new powder-type accelerator based on calcium aluminate has been used for shotcrete in underground construction. This accelerator can be applied to all types of shotcreting. The shotcrete...

Effects of Core Sealing Methods on the Preservation of Pore Water
Five general core sealing methods (using Protecore, Lexan, wax, Protecore with wax, and Protecore with Lexan) were studied over a two year period to determine their moisture retention...

Stress Relaxation Analysis for Sealants
A solution method for stress relaxation analysis of systems composed linear viscoelastic material in a state of plane strain is presented. The incremental, finite element method takes...

Forensic Analysis of a Two-Component Joint Sealant Using FTIR-ATR
Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy using Attenuated Total Internal Reflectance (FTIR-ATR) was used to chemically identify joint sealants obtained from an airfield pavement joint which...
