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...

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...

Installation of Thermistor Strings in Test Borings: A Comparison of Methods and Results
Several test borings were instrumented with two thermistor strings, one inside and one outside an air-filled PVC casing to compare readings of both thermistor strings and the stability...

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

Filling the Cracks
Engineers, highway officials, and manufacturers are working together to develop new products to rehabilitate cracked bridge decks. Polymer concrete overlays are among the many remedies...

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...

A Rule-Base Inference System for Liner/Waste Compatibility
Determining the chemical compatibility of a liner material for containment of wastes rests mainly on the application of expert opinion to interpret the results of short-term immersion...

Evaluation of PVC Bottom Linear From an Existing Landfill Located in a Subtropical Climate
Remedial action to curtail leachate seepage on a sanitary landfill located in a subtropical climate included the attachment of new PVC liner to an existing 20 mil PVC liner which has been...

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,...

Strains Induced by Combined Loading in Buried Pressurized Fiberglass Pipe
In 1983 Owens Corning Fiberglas and Utah State University collaborated on a study of combined strain behavior of fiberglass pipe to quantify the bending strain reduction as a function...

Long Term Testing of Centrifugally Cast Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic Pipes (RIRP)
The paper discusses testing of pipe manufactured by centrifugal molding. The tests included external load tests, internal load, hydrostatic internal pressure, and cyclic internal pressure....

Buried Fiberglass Pipe Performance and Installation Requirements and Design Calculations in International Standardization
This paper elaborates on a proposed standard covering details of fiberglass pipe buried installation requirements and criteria for selection of pipe stiffness. It also discusses the selection...

Successful Use of Centrifugally Cast Glassfiber Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Pressure Pipes for Public Works in Sweden
Centrifugally cast GRP pipes were introduced in Sweden 17 years ago for industrial applications mainly as a gravity pipe. The process of pipe manufacturing as well as the pipe itself and...
