Effect of Basalt Fibers on The Flexural Behavior of Beams Reinforced With BFRP Bars
Over the last few decades, construction materials have gone through many developments aimed at improving their structural and operational properties. The implementation of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars as a replacement ...
Effect of Fiber Addition on the Performance of Preloaded CFRP Strengthened Concrete Beams
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of fiber addition on the performance of Reinforced Concrete (RC) beams that have been externally strengthened in flexure using Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) sheets. ...
Flexural Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Beams Strengthened with Externally Bonded Hybrid Systems
The demand for strengthening of aging reinforced concrete (RC) structures are continuously rising. Carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP) are the most widely used externally bonded-reinforcing (EBR) materials for strengthening ...
Nonlinear FEA of Soil-Structure-Interaction Effects on RC Shear-Wall Structures
Considering Soil-Structure-Interaction (SSI) is essential when evaluating the structural system’s response as it can unveil behaviors that are otherwise not accounted for in fixed-base (FB) systems. Nonlinear Finite Element ...
Structural Behavior of Strand Reinforced Concrete Members without Prestressing
One way to reduce the large amount of steel present in reinforced concrete members that are subjected to high loads is to use high strength materials. In this study, use of high strength steel, seven-wire strands with ...
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 ...
