POLYMER CONCRETE-REINFORCED CONCRETE COMPOSITE BEAMS

COMPOSITE BEAMS CONSISTING OF REINFORCED CONCRETE AND A LAYER OR CAP OF POLYESTER-CONCRETE IN THE REGION OF HIGH COMPRESSIVE STRESS ARE TESTED AND EVALUATED. LOAD-DEFLECTION BEHAVIOR AND ULTIMATE STRENGTH WERE DETERMINED FOR VARIOUS COMBINATIONS OF REINFORCEMENT AND DEPTHS OF FIBROUS POLYESTER CONCRETE CAP. EXPERIMENTAL AND ANALYTICAL RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE FIBROUS POLYESTER CONCRETE COMPOSITE BEAMS ARE PERFORMANCE AND MATERIAL COST EFFECTIVE RELATIVE TO REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS WITH THE SAME PERCENTAGE OF TENSILE REINFORCEMENT. /AUTHOR/
