Durability of Mortar and Epoxy Bonded Galvanized Steel Mesh Sheets to Concrete Surfaces
Over the last few decades, fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) sheets and plates have been extensively used as external strengthening materials and proved to be quite effective in enhancing the flexure and shear strength of ...
Strengthening of Shear Deficient Beams with CFRP Laminates with Different Types of Anchorage Systems
Retrofitting and repairing deteriorating structures have been achieved using several techniques. Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete (RC) members in shear with externally bonded fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) plates and ...
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 ...
Non-Linear Finite Element Analysis of Steel Base Plates on Leveling Nuts
Base plates are used to connect structural members to their foundations. They are routinely used in cantilevered structures supporting traffic utilities like overhead cantilevered direction signboards, traffic signals, ...
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 ...
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 ...
