Engineering achievements have always been closely associated withthe availability of suitable materials for construction. Further progressof engineering will depend on continuous development of all forms of construction developed of all forms of construction.Polymer concrete composites were developed during 1960’s in U.S.A.In INDIA it is widely used for rehabilitation of structures. The popularity gained by the materials is justified by its extra-ordinary highstrength, lower unit weight, total water impermeability and unmatchedchemical resistance.Engineers are trying to improve its quality, strength, etc.against adversecondition. For satisfactory utilization of this alternative material, thevarious phases of examination to check its:
Durability of processed concrete
Economic feasibilityWith the ongoing research being done to develop appropriatetechnology and field trials to monitor the performance ad assessment of economic feasibility, the use of this alternative material will becomemore viable.
