      Houghtalen, Robert J.; Abdalla, Jamal; Caldwell, James; Aidoo, John K.; Ward, Roger C.; Hanson, James H. (ASCE Library, 2017-10)
      Forum papers are thought-provoking opinion pieces or essays founded in fact, sometimes containing speculation, on a civil engineering topic of general interest and relevance to the readership of the journal. The views ...
    • Durability of the bond between CFRP plates and concrete exposed to harsh environment 

      Al-Tamimi, Adil; Hawileh, Rami; Abdalla, Jamal; Rasheed, Hayder; Al Mahaidi, Riadh (ASCE, 2014-12)
      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 ...
    • Evaluation of the contribution of flexural CFRP plates in shear strengthening RC beams 

      Saqan, Elias I.; Nawaz, Waleed; Hawileh, Rami; Abdalla, Jamal (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 

      Hawileh, Rami; Nawaz, Waleed; Abdalla, Jamal; Saqan, Elias I. (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 ...
    • An Integrated Building Information Model (iBIM) for Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures 

      Abdalla, Jamal; Eltayeb, Tilal M. (International Conference on Computing in Civil and Building Engineering (ICCCBE), 2018-06)
      The architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry involve many disciplines during the life cycle of the building from its conception to its demolition. The civil engineering discipline has many domains related ...
    • Local site effects on seismic ground response of major cities in UAE 

      El-Emam, Magdi; Khan, Zahid; Abdalla, Jamal; Irfan, Muhammad (2015)
      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 ...
    • Optimum seismic design of unbonded post-tensioned precast concrete walls using ANN 

      Abdalla, Jamal; Elias, Saqan; Hawileh, Rami (2014-04)
      Precast Seismic Structural Systems (PRESSS) provided an iterative procedure for obtaining optimum design of unbonded post-tensioned coupled precast concrete wall systems. Although PRESSS procedure is effective, however, ...
    • Prediction of Backwater Level of Bridge Constriction using ANN 

      Atabay, Serter; Abdalla, Jamal; Erduran, Kutsi; Mortula, Maruf; Seckin, Galip (2012-12)
      Bridge constriction in channels usually causes afflux which results in increase in backwater level well above the normal level and may possibly result in overflow on the flood plain surrounding the channel during flooding ...
    • Prediction of minimum factor of safety against slope failure in clayey soils using artificial neural network 

      Abdalla, Jamal; Attom, Mousa; Hawileh, Rami (2015)
      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 ...
    • Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis and spectral accelerations for United Arab Emirates
