Abstract

Different proprietary repair materials and a CEM II mortar were used to characterise the relationship between the main parameters of microwave curing (power, curing time, temperature rise and volume). The time-temperature-power relationships are linear for normal, non-rapid setting repair materials cured within the recommended temperature range taking account of temperature variation and heat of hydration. A general relationship between the microwave curing parameters of power, temperature rise, curing time and repair volume has been derived. It has been used to design and operate a prototype system. Steel reinforcement in the repair remains free from arcing under microwave exposure.
