AbstractIt is known that the prestressed half PC (precast) slab system has many advantages such as a reduced construction period and use of long-span one-way slab systems over reinforced concrete and half PC slab systems without prestressing. For this reason, prestressed half slabs are commonly...
AbstractThis paper presents an improved seismic evaluation method based on modal energy balance concept. The capacity spectrum for the structure is converted into energy capacity curve and the demand spectrum for the structure is converted into energy demand curve. The energy capacity curve is...
AbstractThe city of Leon, Nicaragua is a stunning example of Spanish colonial architecture. The historic buildings of Leon were built using adobe construction, which was typical of the nineteenth and early twentieth century, and the city is working hard to preserve their historical architectural...
AbstractThis paper focuses on the tensile behaviours of Kevlar 29 and 49 fabrics reinforced polymers (AFRP-K29 and -K49) at four strain rates (25, 50, 100 and 200 s−1) and five temperatures (−25, 0, 25, 50 and 100 °C). The experimental results show that the tensile mechanical properties of two...
AbstractFriedel’s salt (FS) is a versatile material and has several advantages in constructional and metallurgical sectors. In this paper, FS is formed in situ in concrete. The addition of Al2O3 (5% by weight of cement) was maintained constant and the formation of FS was proceed through the...
AbstractThe nature and unpredictability of geotechnical conditions on a construction project site is a major concern for designers and builders in almost every type of construction project. The risk of encountering conditions that differ from the information contained on the contract could...
