Abstract:The Air Force Engineering and Services Center (AFESC) at Tyndall AFB, Florida is currently engaged in a seven-year research and development effort to rapidly repair bomb damaged concrete runways. Polymer concrete because of rapid cure and high strength is one of the most promising methods of repair. The problems of moisture, temperature extremes and mechanization are all being studied for development of a rapid all-weather polymer concrete repair system. Research includes work at the University of Texas at Austin, AFESC, Battelle Columbus Labora-tories, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and the BDM Corporation. Polymers being considered include acrylics, epoxies, polyesters and furans.
