Abstract

Polymers are considered one of the admixture kinds which they are used to improve the quality and the performance of mortar and concrete. In this study the Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) was used as a polymer to see its effects on the mortar. The (SBR) is considered as a water resistance polymer and bonding agent.Four cement mortar mixes were made in this study, the first one was considered as a reference mix which is not include (SBR) while the other mixes were included (SBR) in deferent percentages. The (SBR) was added as a percentage of cement weight. The amount of mixing water was varied to achieve the same flow which was accomplished in the reference mix throughout carrying out flow table test. Flow table test was adopted according to ASTM C 1439-99 (1) recommendations. For each mix, two prisms were prepared to carry out the drying shrinkage test, nine cubes for the compressive strength test and three cubes for the total water absorption test.It was found that when the quantity of (SBR) increases, the physical properties of mortar under study (drying shrinkage, compressive strength and total water absorption) deteriorate which is adverse to the proposal of advantages due to adding (SBR). This result leads to that the recommendation of ASTM C 1439-99 (1) that adopt the flow table as criteria of adjusting the amount of adding water accompanying with deferent percentages of (SBR) is not adequate

تعتبر البوليمرات احد أنواع المضافات التي تستخدم لتحسين نوعية وأداء المونه أو الخرسانه. ضمن هذه الدراسه تم استخدام الستايرن بيوتادين ربر كبوليمر لمعرفة تأثيراته على المونه، ويعتبر الستايرن بيوتادين ربر ماده مقاومه للماء وعامل ربط.لقد تم عمل أربع خلطات من مونة السمنت ضمن هذه الدراسه، تم اعتبار الاولى خلطه مرجعيه والتي لا تحتوي على مادة الستايرن بيوتادين ربر أما الخلطات الاخرى فتم إضافة الستايرن بيوتادين ربر لها بكميات مختلفه. تم اضافة الستايرن بيوتادين ربر كنسبه من وزن السمنت وكانت كمية ماء الخلط تختلف لتحقق نفس مقدار ألانتشار الذي تم تحقيقه في الخلطه المرجعيه خلال فحص طاولة ألانسياب (flow table). وقد تم اعتماد فحص طاولة ألانسياب (flow table) ليكون المسيطر والموجه خلال العمل وذلك كما توصي به الجمعيه الامريكيه للفحص والمواد ( ASTM C 1439-99 (1)).لكل خلطه تم صب موشورين لإجراء فحص انكماش الجفاف وثلاث مكعبات لاجراء فحص مقاومة الانضغاط وثلاث مكعبات لاجراء فحص الامتصاص الكلي. ولقد وجد انه كلما زادت كمية الستايرن بيوتادين ربر فان مواصفات المونه قيد هذه الدراسه ( انكماش الجفاف ومقاومة الانضغاط والامتصاص الكلي ) تتدهور، وهو عكس ما يفترض ان تكون الفائده المرجوه من أضافة الستايرن بيوتادين ربر. تقودنا هذه النتيجه ان فحص طاولة ألانسياب (flow table ) الذي توصي به الجمعيه الامريكيه للفحص والمواد ( ASTM C 1439-99 (1)) ليكون المعيار لتعديل كمية ماء الخلط الذي تتم أضافته مع نسب مختلفه من مادة الستايرن بيوتادين ربر هو فحص غير ملائم

Abstract

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) has undergone intensive research work that has led to confidence in its utilization in various applications. Nevertheless, its utilization as a construction material in the concrete industry still needs to be fully addressed. In this paper, an experimental study was dedicated to investigate the influence of PVA on the fresh and hardened properties of concrete. Three different strength grades, represented by water to cement ratios (w/c), of 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6, with four different PVA dosages of 1, 2, 3 and 4%, by mass of cement, were employed in the preparation of the concrete mixes. Concerning the fresh properties, results showed that there was a significant contribution of PVA to the workability in all produced mixes, irrespective of w/c ratio. In addition, the initial and final setting time of cement pastes modified with 2% PVA were longer than that of the control paste. In term of the hardened properties, results demonstrated that the compressive (fcu) and splitting tensile (fst) strengths of concrete are dominated by amounts of PVA in the mix and w/c ratios. With the high and moderate w/c ratios, they increased when up to 2% PVA was used, and thereafter decreased. However, with the low w/c, PVA did not provide any improvement in the strength, but instead, it decreased the strength when more than 2% was added. The findings revealed also that increasing PVA content resulted in a significant reduction in total water absorption (TWA) of concrete specimens. The larger the PVA contents the lower is the TWA of the specimens
