Evaluation of the contribution of flexural CFRP plates in shear strengthening RC beams
(Conference on Smart Monitoring, Assessment and Rehabilitation of Civil Structures, 2015)
Strengthening of RC beams for shear has been typically done by externally attaching strips of steel plates or carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets or plates on the sides of the beams. However, sides of beams ...
External strengthening of shear deficient reinforced concrete beams with flexural CFRP laminates
(International Workshop on Performance, Protection & Strengthening of Structures under Extreme Loading (PROTECT 2015), 2015-06)
This paper presents an experimental investigation of reinforced concrete (RC) beams strengthened in shear with externally bonded flexural carbon-fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) sheets attached to the soffit of the beam via ...
Prediction of minimum factor of safety against slope failure in clayey soils using artificial neural network
This paper presents prediction of minimum factor of safety (FS) against slope failure in clayey soils using artificial neural network (ANN). Two multilayer perceptron ANN models were used to predict the minimum factor of ...
Temperature Effect on the Mechanical Properties of Carbon, Glass and Carbon-Glass FRP Laminates
Externally bonded fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) laminates are widely used to strengthen and rehabilitate reinforced concrete (RC) structural members in flexure and shear. Despite the clear and proven advantages of using ...
Local site effects on seismic ground response of major cities in UAE
This paper investigates the influence of local geotechnical and geological soil conditions on the intensity of ground shaking of major cities in United Arab Emirates (UAE) including Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah, and their ...
