Title: Improvement of Mechanical Properties of Concrete Through the Addition of Polymer Latex
Author(s): Shigeyuki Akihama, Hiroshi Morita, Shiego Watanabe, and Hiroshi Chida
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 319-338
Keywords: compressive strength; concretes; deformation; mix proportioning; modulus of elasticity; mortars (material) poisson ratio; polymer concrete; tensile strength; tests; water-cement ratio
Abstract:It was found that strain at maximum compressive and tensile stress of polymer-modified concrete became steadily greater with the increasing polymer content . .Experiments were carried out with shear walls made of the polymer-modified concrete in order to examine the improvement of ductility and toughness under the shear force.
