Abstract:

In general, there are many materials are available for enhancing the strength of the concrete. Partially polymer is used for improving the strength, but it is not commonly used. There are many researches has done for better improvement the strength of concrete by using polymer. The study inspects the compressive strength, flexural strength and split tensile strength of M20, M40, M60 with polymer impregnated concrete and steel wire mesh there will be a comparison between PCC (Plain cement concrete), (PCC, steel wire mesh and Polymer Impregnated Concrete). Polymer impregnated concrete is obtained by introducing monomer in concrete by socking at atmospheric pressure. The monomer will be replaced in air voids of concrete. Ferrocement is the combination of mortar and steel wire mesh to improve the strength of the concrete the steel wire is used. The test done in two stages of the cube, prism and cylinder conducted in 7 days and 28 days and water cement ratio is taken 0.45, cement is used OPC 53 grade. The moulds are used cube, prism, cylinders. As the compressive, flexural, split tensile strength test are conducted at two stages and compared between convectional concrete and polymer impregnated concrete with steel wire mesh as a result impact of steel wire mesh played a major role to improve the strength of concrete.

Keywords:

Steel wire mesh, silica fume, super plasticizer, polymer, split tensile strength, compressive strength, flexural strength.
