This study investigates the influence of aggregates, glass fibers and a coupling agent on the compressive and flexural (three‐point and four‐point bending) behavior of a polyester mortar. Particle size of fine aggregates (quartz and limestone) varied from 0.1 to 5 mm (0.004 to 0.2 inch) and the glass fiber content was varied up to 6% by weight of mortar. A silane was introduced into the polyester mortar by pretreating the aggregates and the glass fibers. The mechanical properties of mortar were studi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
