Polymer concrete (PC) is used in the construction of structural elements. Applications include wall panels to carry wind and seismic loads; underground vaults that must resist lateral earth pressure; vault and utility box covers that are required to resist vehicle loads; machine tool components subject to a wide range of loadings; and railroad ties to resist static and dynamic rail loads. Structural uses of PC components involve flexure, shear, bearing, and deflections. Creep, fatigue, and service temperature are important aspects of these mechanisms. A need for defining and understanding polymer concrete's structural properties and behavior therefore exists. Standards and codes governing design with polymer concrete have not yet been developed.
