Seismic Site Response, Analysis and Characterization of Major Cities in UAE
United Arab Emirates (UAE) has experienced significant economic growth in recent years. The accelerated schedule driven projects are compelling designers to use values of seismic hazard (ground motion) that are either ...
Effect of Crude Oil Products on the Geotechnical Properties of Sandy Soil
Different regions around the world are encountering oil pollution due to many reasons such as leakage of oil due to tanker accidents, transportation on land and sea, and during the process of oil drilling. This oil spill ...
Effect of Girder Damage on the Structural Behavior of Slab-on-Girder Bridges
There are many bridges around the world that have been constructed with inadequate vertical clearance. Such bridges are susceptible to over-height vehicle collisions, causing damage to the underside of the supporting ...
Characterization and Modeling of Damage in Steel at Different Strain Rates
The structural behavior of steel, as many structural materials, changes during deformation processes under complex mechanical loadings. The damage process may start at some point in the deformation process in the form of ...
Behavior of RC Beams Strengthened with CFRP Laminates Under Fire - A Finite Element Simulation
For the last two decades, the use of Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) material has been successfully employed in many civil engineering applications. FRP strengthening systems are mainly used to retrofit existing and deficient ...
Numerical Study of Localization Failure in Structural Steel Under Impact Loading
High quality steels are used as a skeleton supporting many infrastructure constructions like, for example, skyscrapers, arenas, stadiums, bridges and others. The likelihood that these structures could be severely damaged ...
