Abstract:
In previous studies it was found that ductility in polymer-impregnated concrete could be significantly enhanced by combining a plasticizing comonomer, n-butyl acrylate, with methyl methacrylate. . .This paper describes extension of this work to the deformation of concrete beams, columns, and cones reinforced with brittle and ductile polymers, with steel fiber and mesh, and with combinations of steel with polymer. The effects of combined states of stress as in beam bending or compression of a cone were of particular interest.
