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...
The present study has focused on the effects of Powdered Activated Carbon (PAC) in fly ash on the air-entraining admixture demand and consequent properties of concrete. An extensive laboratory test program was completed during this investigation. Three series of mixes were designed to evaluate...
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 study assesses the suitability of four sectional shear methods for predicting the shear capacity of reinforced concrete members which do not comply with S6-06 Section 14 stirrup spacing and area requirements. The results of the evaluations indicate that the sectional shear provisions in...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Hooked end steel fibers were included between 0~1% by volume to provide enhanced shear resistance to three different types of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) namely, a regular concrete mix, a lightweight aggregate mix and a high strength mix. The test results at the material scale showed a...
Magnesium potassium phosphate ceramics are from the family of phosphate-based cements which can be used as alternatives to Portland cements. In this study, concretes and wood composites were produced using magnesium potassium phosphate ceramic binders and supplementary materials including fly...
