Abstract : The Bureau of Reclamation and Brookhaven National Laboratory conducted a joint research program on development of concrete-polymer materials under the sponsorship of the then U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, the then Office of Saline Water, and the Bureau of Reclamation. The program began in 1967 and continued to June 1973. Five topical reports have been published in the work performed through June 1972. Tests results presented were conducted at the Bureau during the final year of the cooperative program, and include: (1) work on monomer and composites surveys, (2) process technology development for PIC (polymer-impregnated concrete), (3) test results on PIC at ambient and elevated temperatures, (4) examination of PIC after exposure to brine at elevated temperatures, (5) nondestructive testing of PIC, and (6) a brief summary of applications development. The purpose of this report is to record final data from the testing program. Detailed analyses of those data are not included.
