Single-layer barrel vaults with one radius of curvature may be fabricated with several common grid configurations. With different configurations, the vault' s performance and aesthetics vary considerably affecting both its competitiveness and suitability for different applications. The study...
The research and development of high-performance concrete (HPC) that can give both high flow characteristics and high strength have attracted wide interest in Taiwan. The construction of the 101-storey Taipei Financial Center and the 85-storey Tungtxt & Chingtai (T&C) Tower requires the slump to...
The recent advances in detecting and locating damage in bridges by different kinds of non-destructive testing and evaluation (NDT&E) methods are reviewed. From the application point of view, classifications for general bridge components and their damage types are presented. The relationships...
Tests on sixteen concrete filled steel tubes to investigate the influence of concrete compaction methods on the section capacities of concrete filled steel tubes with rectangular sections are reported. The main objectives of these tests were twofold: firstly, to report a series of tests on...
A new formula for predicting the average crack widths in reinforced and partially prestressed concrete beams has been developed incorporating four governing parameters. The performance of the proposed formula is checked using the authors' test results which includes crack spacing and crack width...
Minimum cost design of reinforced concrete columns subjected to reliability constraints is a multi-level optimization problem because both the analysis of minimum cost design, and the estimation of the reliability are nonlinearly constrained optimization problems. A procedure for reliability...
