A team of researchers, contractors, and state materials engineers concluded that the simple process of casting large diameter drilled shafts with a central void completely eliminated mass concrete conditions that can accompany large concrete structures .
The use of mineral admixtures in concrete produced with treated recycled concrete aggregate enhances both the mechanical and durability properties leading to sustainable development.
The present study addresses the feasibility of reinforced concrete
columns totally reinforced with glass fiber-reinforced polymer
(GFRP) bars achieving the drift requirements specified in various
Results from a recent study show that a prescriptive code-based approach can lead to critical underestimation of seismic demands.
An experimental study examines the physical characteristics of internally cured concrete using organic and inorganic materials, including chloride-related responses.
The “Engineering Ethics” webinar will review various codes of ethics and their applications, along with a review of some case studies and lessons learned.
The results described in this work show the electrical resistivity measurement method has the potential to be an accurate means for measuring the water absorption of very fine particles. Such advances in characterization methods for fine particles supp…
An innovative conductive composite, ionically conductive mortar, is developed in this study.
Analysis to evaluate the onset of global instability under tension/compression load shows that the onset of buckling can be identified using either a proposed buckling theory or computer simulations.
Test results show that interactions between admixtures can reduce air-void stability, contributing to lowered freezing-and-thawing durability and scaling resistance.
