Cracking Behavior Comparisons Between Normal and Fiber-Concretes
A comparative study of the cracking behavior of plain- and polypropylene fiber concrete was performed. Both high- and low-strength concretes were studied. Maximum and average crack widths...

Sulfur Polymer Concrete for Special-Purpose Applications
Special-purpose sulfur concrete construction materials, based on sulfur polymer cement (SPC) and mineral aggregate, have been developed by the U.S. Bureau of Mines as part of a program...

Polymer Concretes
Polymer Concrete (PC) is prepared by using polymeric materials to bond inert aggregates in a fashion similar to that of Portland Cement in the preparation of Portland Cement Concrete (PCC)....

Fiberglas Reinforced Plastic Rebars in Lieu of Steel Rebars
Fiberglass reinforced plastics have recently been introduced in the market in the form of rebars for concrete reinforcement. The light weight, corrosion resistance and non-magnetic properties...

Sprayed-On Polymer Mortar Construction
Sprayed-on polymer mortar has been used to construct low-cost, lightweight structures in a variety of locations. The addition of the two-component additive to one cubic yard of mortar...

Flexural and Shear Moduli of FRP Beams
The analysis and design of structures of pultruded fiber reinforced plastic (FRP), constant cross-section, commercially produced, beams is discussed in the context of a shear deformation...

Effect of Temperature on the Load-Carrying Capacity of Fiber Glass Reinforced Plastic Beams
This paper describes an experimental investigation into the behavior of two T shaped beams made of fiber glass reinforcement and polyester or vinylester binders. Tests were performed at...

Application of Fiber-Composites in Civil Engineering
Two potential applications of Glass-Fiber-Reinforced-Plastics (GFRP) in civil engineering type structures are investigated: (1) GFRP rebars in concrete beams; (2) strengthening of concrete...

Isabella Project—Retrofit of Existing Tunnel
This paper explains conceptual methods of reinforcing and lining the section of the existing tunnel downstream of the three control gates to the exit portal and bifurcation for the power...

Additives May Improve Pavement Performance

Factors Affecting the Behavior of Polyolefin and Latex Modified Asphalt Concrete Mixtures

Cement-Based Materials for Planetary Facilities
The use of concrete and other materials based on a cementitious matrix is evaluated for the construction of planetary base facilities. Consideration is given to the most recent developments...

Removal of Giardia Using Alum and Polymer Coated Diatomaceous Earth

Polymer Concrete for Structural Applications
Polymer concrete (PC) has been used extensively in the United States primarily as a repair material for portland cement concrete. The excellent flexural and compressive strength durability...

Exhibits Under Fiberglass
The San Diego Convention Center, scheduled for completion in 1988, is located on 11 acres of downtown land only 150 ft from the bay. It will cost $130 million for total of 1.7 million...

Mixing and Polymer Performance in Sludge Dewatering
A biofilm reactor, termed the support-aerated biofilm (SAB), was developed in which oxygen was supplied to the interior of the biofilm through a permeable membrane. The reactor was tested...

Polymer Modified Asphalts—An Overview

Direct Filtration of Colored Water Supplies
The effects of raw water quality, chemical treatment, and filtration variables on the performance of direct filtration are examined. Cationic polyelectrolytes as sole coagulants are effective...

Optimization of Design and Operating Parameters for Single-Media, Unstratified-Bed Filters
The potentially successful use of filters containing large grain-size single media for water filtration has prompted investigation of the parameters controlling the performance of these...

Buried Fiberglass Pipe Response to Field Installation Methods
In 1970 near Yuma, Arizona, a field test installation of 30 inch diameter fiberglass pipe was constructed. Twelve years later the pipeline was remeasured. Measurements of pipe profile,...
