Abstract text:
The aim of this paper is to present an approach for developing material models, using a statistical investigation, for analysing the mechanical characteristics of polymer concrete. The experimental studies were realized on polymer concrete prepared of epoxy resin, silica fume and aggregates. The mix combinations were designed based on the mixture design of experiments concept. For each polymer concrete combination the mechanical properties were studied. The results are reported for polymer concrete realized of epoxy resin and silica fume (SUF) as filler using Response Surface Methodology (RSM). The effect of each variable on the response was analysed by this advanced method adapted on the study.
