Effect of Construction Void Defects on Flexural and Axial Load Capacity of Reinforced Concrete Members
A common construction defect in reinforced concrete is honeycombing, which consists of loosely connected coarse aggregates with little mortar in-between them over a small volume located within a structural member. Such a ...
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 ...
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 ...
The Use of Lime to Stabilize Clay Soil against Internal Erosion
Internal erosion failure of soils in hydraulic structures is one of the most catastrophic failures in civil engineering projects. Therefore, it is vital to stabilize the soil against this phenomenon. Different materials ...
Effects of Autonomous Vehicles on Freeway Traffic Performance
Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are smart transportation technologies that have drawn significant attention recently due to their rapid development and promising future. Dubai is trying to promote the use of AVs on its road ...
