An Experimental Study on the Physical Properties of Porous Cement Concrete Using Polymer as an Admixture ;;;;
Porous Concrete usually contains large amount of voids(about 10∼20%) after compaction so that it has relatively high permeability. It has been introduced in domestic since early 1980's but it has problems such as lack of optimized mixture, low strength and durability, and other defects, etc. The purpose of this study is to manufacture high-performance porous concrete using polymer to enhance the mechanical properties. The results of this study are as follows; the compressive strength range 12 92∼207kgf/㎠, the tensile strength range is 14∼28kgf/㎠, the bending stength range is 42∼73kgf/㎠, and the coefficient permeability range is 5.77×10-2∼6.79×10-1cm/sec. To develope high-performance porous concrete. further studies are needed on optimum mixture of fineness modulus and admixture.
