Glued joints for structural concrete

A review of existing literature on epoxy concrete (in which glue is used in place of cement) and on the use of epoxy and polyester resins for joints in concrete shows that joints stronger than the concrete can be made but that poor surface preparation leads to a serious loss of strength. There is little information on the creep of joints under shear stress. R. PAUL JOHNSON
