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.
