Abstract:
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.
