Effect of Aggregate Type and Specimen Configuration on Concrete Compressive Strength
Cement content, water-to-cement ratio (w/c), aggregate size and type, specimen size and shape, loading rate, and curing are some factors that affect the concrete compressive strength. This study focuses on the effect of ...
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 ...
Soil Characterization Utilizing GPR Technique
Engineering properties of soil, such as shear strength parameters, water content, degree of saturation, and permeability are essential for safe and economic design of any structure involving soil structure ...
Development and Evaluation of Nano-silica Sustainable Concrete
The concrete industry is one of the main contributors in the emission of carbon dioxide. Yet, it is the most used man-made material. In the past few decades, different pozzolanic materials were used as a partial replacement ...
