Abstract:

The objective of the study was to evaluate the structural behavior of Polymer-impregnated, fibrous cellular concrete PFCC elements to see if further consideration of the use of such material systems is warranted for BMD facilities. A fibrous cellular concrete was impregnated with polyester resin to obtain polymer-impregnated, fibrous cellular concrete PFCC test specimens. Structural behavior was examined by testing simply supported beams material behavior was determined by compression cylinder tests. Flexural behavior was evaluated based on the observed behavior of PFCC and steel reinforcing bars. Modified author abstract
