Shrinkage of latex-modified and microsilica concrete overlays Buchanan, Patricia M et al

By: Buchanan, Patricia MPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2003Description: nr 1834, s. 33-9Subject(s): USA | | Microsilica | Latex | Modification | Shrinkage | Performance | In situ | | Cracking | Adhesion | Bridge deck | 52Bibl.nr: VTI P8169:2003 Ref ; VTI P8167Location: Abstract: Shrinkage performance was examined of Virginia Department of Transportation-approved latex-modified and microsilica concrete overlay mixtures. Research was conducted on both field-sampled and laboratory-fabricated restrained and unrestrained specimens. From crack and delamination surveys of sampled bridge decks and laboratory test results, a shrinkage performance-based specification for the Virginia Department of Transportation was developed. There was no significant difference between the unrestrained shrinkage values of latex-modified and microsilica concrete overlay mixtures for the specified time periods. Restrained microsilica concrete specimens generally cracked earlier and more frequently than restrained latex-modified concrete specimens. However, the bridge deck crack and delamination surveys show that conditions and quality of construction and type and frequency of traffic may have a greater effect on cracking than the overlay material.
