POLYMER-CONCRETE COMPOSITES FOR ENERGY RELATED SYSTEMS. PROGRESS REPORT NO. 3, OCTOBER--DECEMBER 1974

Polymer-concrete (PC) materials were exposed to a synthetic geothermal brine at 177 exp 0 C for up to 100 days; changes in compressive strength, dimensions, and composition were determined. Thermal shock tests on PC-lined steel pipe and tests on use of PC in geothermal systems were initiated. Research is continuing on the use of solid waste in glass polymer composite sewer pipe. Tests are underway on the use of polymer-impregnated concrete to prevent ice formation on canal lock walls and as railroad ties.
