Abstract

In this study, the effects of curing temperature and curing time on the mechanical properties of polysulfide polymer concrete were investigated. For this purpose, several laboratory tests were conducted to measure the compressive, flexural, and bond strengths of the concrete. The ranges of curing temperature and curing time considered were −10–60 °C and 3–672 h (28 days), respectively. The test results show that a curing temperature above 20 °C adversely affects the strength of the concrete. Regression equations derived from the test results demonstrate the reliability of the results for the estimation of flexural and bond strengths from a given value of compressive strength.
