Abstract : The objective of the study was to evaluate the structural behavior of Polymer-impregnated, fibrous cellular concrete (PFCC) elements to see if further consideration of the use of such material systems is warranted for BMD facilities. A fibrous cellular concrete was impregnated with polyester resin to obtain polymer-impregnated, fibrous cellular concrete (PFCC) test specimens. Structural behavior was examined by testing simply supported beams; material behavior was determined by compression cylinder tests. Flexural behavior was evaluated based on the observed behavior of PFCC and steel reinforcing bars. (Modified author abstract)
