MODAL DETERMINATION OF THE EFFECT OF BOND BETWEEN COARSE AGGREGATE AND MORTAR ON THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE

THIS REPORT SUMMARIZES A LONGER REPORT DESCRIBING AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION WHICH COMPARED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE MADE WITH GLASS MARBLES AS THE COARSE AGRREGATE WITH THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE IN WHICH THE BOND BETWEEN MORTAR AND GLASS MARBLES WAS RAISED BY COATING THE MARBLES WITH A THIN LAYER OF SOFT PLASTIC. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT COATING REDUCES THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH UP TO 2.5 TIMES, THE STRENGTH REDUCTION BEING ALMOST PROPORTIONAL TO THE VOLUMETRIC CONTENT OF GLASS MARBLES IN THE CONCRETE. /AUTHOR/
