Title: Abrasion Resistance of Concrete
Author(s): Tony C. Liu
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 341-350
Keywords: abrasion resistance; abrasion-resistant coatings; abrasion tests;acrylic resins; aggregates; compressive strength; epoxy resins; furan resins;polyurethane resins; tests; vacuum treated concrete; water-cement ratio.
Abstract:A laboratory test program on abrasion resistance of concrete, including the development of a new underwater abrasion test method, is described. The test program was designed to evaluate the relative abrasion resistance of various materials considered for use in the repair of a brasion-damaged concrete structures. Variables incorporated in this study were aggregate type, water-cement ratio and hence compressive strength of the concrete, and treatment of surfaces of the concrete test specimens. Based on the test data obtained, a comprehensive evaluation of the effects of various parameters on the abrasion resistance of concrete is presented, Material suitable for use in the repair of abrasion-damaged concrete structures is recommended.
