Soil Stabilization against Internal Erosion Using Cement and Fiber-Cement Mixture
Internal erosion of soil is the main cause of failure in many engineering hydraulic structures especially embankment dams. Understanding the internal erosion behavior and stabilizing the soil against this phenomenon is a ...
Effect of Flexural CFRP Sheets and Plates on Shear Resistance of Reinforced Concrete Beams
Ageing of reinforced concrete (RC) structures has captured the attention of a number of researchers to find different materials and techniques to strengthen and retrofit deteriorated structures. Carbon Fiber Reinforced ...
Modeling of tri-parameter contracts integrating cost, time and risk
Delay is a crucial determinant to the success of a construction project as time has an impact on the financial returns and/or the social benefits for public projects. As cost contingencies are essential to mitigate the ...
Towards a Critical Construction Management Research Agenda in the MENA Region
Research in construction management has seen a lot of growth in recent years. The contribution of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is still relatively low. There is a need to identify the causes of the low ...
Formation of Bromate in Pet Bottle Water
High bromate levels in bottle water is a concern in UAE. In this study, bromate formation in bottles of drinking water was studied while exposed to various temperatures, storage times and pH levels. Three brands, referred ...
Durability Study on the Bond Strength of Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (BFRP) Bars
In the last few decades, Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRP) bars have emerged as alternatives to conventional steel reinforcing bars to overcome the corrosion problem found in reinforced concrete structures. Numerous studies ...
