Compressive Behavior of Slender Circular Columns with Double GFRP Spirals and Bars
Despite the recent research efforts and developments, many building codes and standards, e.g. ACI 440.1R-15 and CSA S806-12, recommend ignoring Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) reinforcement in design for compression. This ...
Strengthening of Shear Deficient Reinforced Concrete Beams using Anchored CFRP sheets
Fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials have been widely implemented to strengthen existing reinforced concrete (RC) structures in the past three decades. Studies have shown that externally bonding FRP materials ...
Practical Considerations in Frequency Diverse Array Radar Signal Processing
The frequency diverse array (FDA) has been shown to produce a range and angle dependent beampattern, unlike a conventional phased array which yields only a direction dependent pattern. The FDA generates a range-selective ...
