EVALUATING MODIFIED CONCRETES PARTS 1 AND 2

The author discusses methods of evaluating the properties of conventional concretes as compared with modified concretes containing organic resins or polymeric materials. It is shown that in terms of the properties by which concrete is judged at present, the improvements resulting from the various additions may be no greater than those resulting from optimum mix designs using normal cements and aggregates. A comprehensive list of tests for the comparison of different forms of concrete is given. It does not include the cost factor which, although important, must be related to a particular application and not compared per unit volume.
