Using Sulphur Concrete on Defense Buildings

Sulphur concrete (SC) is a concrete type without water and cement in the concrete mix. It becomes binder by heating sulphur up to 114 oC. Sulphur combines with aggregate to reach high strengths. Flexural and splitting tensile strength is higher than cement reinforced concrete. It gets 80% of its strength in 24 hours and is ready to use in a short time. Also, it has very high resistance against aggressive environments. The porosity rate is partially low. SC can provide resistance to radiation with low thickness. Also, it is very easy to provide. Besides mineral deposits, it can be produced as waste in oil and natural gas production. It has resistance of fire. This concrete can be repaired locally against damage and deformations. According to studies, it provides its strength before damage. Using SC in military or critical buildings will reduce the damage to the building. Making shelters from SC at the operation site will be more resistant in a shorter time. This article will describe the use of SC in the field of defense. In addition, compressive test results is given at the performed with SC sample.
