Abstract:
Automated production of precast polymer concrete construction components is presented. Both batchwise and continuous production are discussed, and examples of both techniques are shown. Automated on-site application and execution systems allow benefits to be taken of the specific features of polymer-cement concrete. Automated execution of overlays, tunnels, porous polymer-cement concrete pavements and polymer-cement shotcrete are presented as examples.
