Reinforcing Admixtures and their Effectiveness Experiments for Strength and Damping of Polymer Modified Concrete
The relationships between the mechanical properties of modified concrete and the composition of latex blend were studied. Influence of steel fiber and polypropylene fiber on performance of modified concrete was analyzed on that basis. The results indicate that the contradiction between the strength and the damping property of normal concrete will be relieved to some degree by controlling the proportion of latex blend. The adding of fiber can modify the damping property of concrete, while it has a little effects on the compressive strength and elastic modulus of concrete.
