The primary purpose of this investigation was to study the feasibility and effects of sulfur impregnation of concrete carried out at atmospheric pressure. The investigation had three parts: to study the effects of process technology parameters (mix proportions, time of curing, temperature of drying and time of immersion in molten sulfur bath), to analyze the effects of high temperature and temperature cycling on properties of impregnated concrete, and to explore the possiblility of improving strength and ductiliy of SIC by addition of steel fibers.

This paper presents data on long-term strength and durability of sulphur-infiltrated concrete.

Laboratory experiments are reported with the intention to show the effects of epoxy modification of portland cement mortars in the presence or absence of accelerating and/or plastifying admixtures. . .The test results show considerable improvements in the workability of the epoxy-modified mortars, and strength increases, when it accelerating admixture was also used, up to 100 to 120%. It appears from the results of the silylation that these strength increases were caused mostly by physical factors.

Full utilization of concrete performance characteristics is restricted by its low tensile strength, susceptibility to severe moisture and temperature changes and chemical attack in adverse environment.

For evaluating the performance of concrete constructions such as foundation piles, a knowledge of the dynamic properties of concrete is also required. The results of a study of concrete under dynamic impact loading are given in this paper.

Impregnation with monomer over a large concrete area under field conditions is often a difficult and cumbersome task and must be carried out with special care.

By applying the newly developed techniques of polymer impregnated concrete (PIC) in conjunction with existing epoxy repair technology, severely deteriorated, low quality concrete can be restored to an adequate structural material. The problem of handling techniques and safety of PIC used in a closed building environment are discussed along with costs of commercial use.

Because of the excellent durability exhibited by polymer impregnated concrete, a procedure was developed for the in-situ polymer impregnation of bridge deck surfaces to a minimum depth of 1 inch (22mm).
Ronald P. Webster, David W. Fowler, and Donald R. Paul
Research has led to the development of monomer formulations and procedures for partial-depth polymer impregnation of concrete bridge decks.
