Logarithmic Decrement and Dynamic Modulus of Coated Cement Concrete
This report presents a research on vibration absorption properties of coated cement concrete, by discussing the logarithmic decrement and dynamic modulus obtained from bending vibration test at various temperatures. The effect of temperature and bitumen content on the vibration properties of materials was evaluated. As temperature and/or coating asphalt content increased, coated cement concrete increased logarithmic decrement and resulted in increasing vibration absorption than the conventional cement concrete. The vibration properties of coated cement concrete were similar to those of conventional cement concrete in the low temperature range. The dynamic modulus of coated cement concrete decreased at higher temperatures. The rate of decrease of dynamic modulus at higher temperatures was comparatively small in comparison with the rate of increase of logarithmic decrement.
