Embedded plates (embeds) are a common method of joining steel and concrete members in structures. Research at the University of Alberta emphasized the lack of consideration in the Canadian concrete design standard CSA A23.3:19 Annex D for the effect of reinforcement on anchorage capacity, as well...
Modelling Repair Techniques for Reinforced Concrete Bridge Barriers using Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer BarsDownload
In an era where bridge deterioration due to corrosion has become evident and a pressing concern for future reinforced concrete bridge construction, glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) reinforcement has emerged as a feasible alternative to steel due to its superior corrosion resistance. Research...
Precast concrete insulated wall panels (IWP) are thermally and structurally efficient systems commonly used in construction. Although their flexural performance has been studied extensively, there are limited studies on thermal bowing in IWP. Bowing causes unwanted deflections, stresses on the...
The most common detrimental processes that lead to reduction in durability in reinforced concrete elements are shrinkage, sulphate attack and chloride attack. Shrinkage is a dimensional instability chiefly caused by a loss of moisture in the hydrating cement paste. Soluble sulphate ions take part...
This thesis examines narratives associated with the city and Indigenous people, knowledge, and culture and it then imagines the creative possibilities of new ways of being in the city. This thesis conceptualizes the beginnings of a culturally grounded Indigenous identity that flourishes in the...
Bond Performance between Lightweight Concrete with Crumb Rubber and Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer BarDownload
For any reinforced concrete structure, the bond between concrete and the reinforcement bar is the most important parameter from structural standpoint. Notwithstanding numerous prior studies on describing this interaction for different reinforcing bars, not enough understanding exists for fibre...
Structural Reliability of Non-Slender Loadbearing Concrete Masonry Members under Concentric and Eccentric LoadsDownload
Although the reliability levels of structural steel and reinforced concrete structures designed to the Canadian codes and standards have been investigated substantially in the past four decades, studies on the reliability of masonry structures are limited. Based on some preliminary studies in...
Premature corrosion of reinforcing steel is a cause of concern for steel-reinforced concrete structures, since it causes them to deteriorate before their design operational life is attained. The Use of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars in reinforced-concrete (RC) structures has been shown to...
Although significant progress in the modelling of the nonlinear response of reinforced - concrete (RC) structures at the element level has been achieved in the past decades, reliable and accurate analysis models at the system level for RC structures are scarce. Due to the complexity of elements...
This study is part of a joint Canada-India research program to effect sustainable construction. Alberta generates a significant amount of waste from agricultural- and forest-based industries. Similarly, India has lots of sugar cane bagasse waste. Researchers in both countries want to use these...
