POLYMER MODIFIED CONCRETE. FLEXURE AND BOND IN FIBERGLASS-REINFORCED POLYMER CONCRETE BEAMS

POLYSIL polymer concrete beams reinforced with fiberglass rods were tested and evaluated in simple flexure. Testing was carried out by applying two equal loads symmetrically placed about the centerline of the beam on simply supported spans of 51, 63, and 72 inches. The primary experimental data consisted of strains measured by means of electrical resistance gages. These strains were used to establish cracking strains and bond strengths for the beams tested. The results indicate a range of values for cracking strains and bond strengths, the lowest cracking strain being 370 and the lowest bond strength being 434 psi.
