Light Emitting Concrete (LEC)
Currently, the world recognizes concrete as just a dull, grey building material. However, concrete has the potential to cater to different functions as well.
Development and Evaluation of Nano-silica Sustainable Concrete
The concrete industry is one of the main contributors in the emission of carbon dioxide. Yet, it is the most used man-made material. In the past few decades, different pozzolanic materials were used as a partial replacement ...
Shear Strength of Reinforced Concrete Beams Made with Recycled Coarse Aggregate
The Bee'ah's Waste Management Complex in the Emirate of Sharjah, UAE, has been producing aggregate from construction and demolition wastes for quite some time. However, such a product has not been utilized in structural ...
Design and performance of sustainable/green concrete
Concrete is the most used construction material in the world. However, the production of one ton of cement, which is the main ingredient of concrete, releases about one ton of carbon dioxide, and consumes natural resources, ...
Evaluation of Sustainability of Multistory Reinforced Concrete Structure
Three different types of concrete mixes of design strengths 100 MPa, 50 MPa, and 50 MPa lightweight were designed, produced, and analyzed in the effort to quantify their effects on sustainability and economics. An overall ...
Investigation on Concrete Compressive Strength Mixed with Sand Contaminated by Crude Oil
The leak of oil products due to the huge demand would result in contaminating the sand that might be used in the concrete industry. This paper experimentally investigates the effect of contaminated sand with kerosene and ...
Performance of Olive Waste Ash Concrete Exposed to Thermal Cycling
This paper explores the influence of olive waste ash (OWA) on the performance of concrete to thermal cycling. The performance of concrete to thermal cycling was evaluated by measuring the compressive strength, electrical ...
Durability of the bond between CFRP plates and concrete exposed to harsh environment
Strengthening and retrofitting structural members using carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) materials has gained wide acceptance in the civil engineering community because of their superior mechanical properties, light ...
