THE EFFECTS OF SEA WATER ON THE STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF METAL-FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE

Metal-fiber reinforced concrete is a structural material with several unique advantages for offshore applications. This paper describes a series of exposure tests undertaken to evaluate the suitability of metal-fiber reinforced concrete for marine applications. Corrosion exposure tests and freeze-thaw tests are discussed. (Copyright (c) 1978, Offshore Technology Conference.)
