Preliminary Examination of the Effects of Time and Flexural Direction on an Anisotropic Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat
The significance of this research was to determine the effect the main fabric weave direction and cure time has on the maximum load of 0.34 inch anisotropic Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat sample coupons. Two series of tests were run. The first used a three-point bend test on the material samples with varying cure times to determine the average maximum load associated with each. The second series of testing used followed ASTM D8030/D8030M - 16 for sample preparation and ASTM D8058 - 17 for testing to determine the flexural strength and modulus of elasticity of the test samples with and against the main machine weave pattern. The results indicated no significant difference between the variations of cure times. However, the results did indicate a significant difference between flexural strength of with and against machine weave.
