CONCRETE FOR TUNNEL LINERS. BEHAVIOR OF FIBER REINFORCED QUICK SETTING CEMENT CONCRETE

Studies of the behavior of steel fiber reinforced quick- setting cement concretes were undertaken to provide information on the applicability of these materials in tunnel liners. Durability studies showed that low void volume pumpable mix designs are less permeable than mix designs proportioned by conventional methods. In a particular sulfate environment, sulfate resistance studies indicate that quick setting concrete deteriorates sooner than type 1 cement concrete. Regulated-set cement concretes heated to 66 F (350 C) retain 30 to 40 percent of their original strength after cooling.
