Title: High Strength, High Density Concrete
Author(s): Katharine Mather
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1587-1596
Keywords: age; aggregate size; compressive strength; density (mass/volume); heavyweight aggregates; heavyweight concretes; high strength concretes; ileminte; magnetite; nuclear reactor containment; radiation shielding; research; water-cement ratio
Abstract:Any sound concrete, in sections of sufficient thickness, can be used to construct a satisfactory biological shield. . .This investigation showed that high strength concrete can be made using materials that provide high density, and that high density concrete can be made using proportions that ensure high strength.
