Lining of Reinforced Spun Concrete Pipes using Polymer-Modified Mortars
  PDF(new window)
Up to this day, reinforced spun concrete pipes have been widely used as drain pipes. However, many reinforced spun concrete pipes are exposed to the deteriorated environment such as freezing-thawing damage and chemical attack by the growth of a sulfur-oxidizing bacterium isolated from corroded concrete. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of lining by polymer-modified mortar using polymer dispersions as cement modifier on the development in durability of reinforced spun concrete pipe. The polymer-modified mortars were prepared with various polymer types and polymer-cement ratios, and tested for compressive and flexural strengths, acid, freezing-thawing, and heat resistances. And then, the reinforced spun concrete pipe product lined by polymer-modified mortars was tested for adhesion in tension and surface conditions according to curing temperatures in the field. From the test results, it is apparent that the polymer-modified mortars have good mechanical properties and durability as a lining material. In practice, all polymers can be used as lining the materials for reinforced spun concrete pipe, and types of polymer, and polymer-cement ratio and curing conditions are controlled for a good lining product.
