Concrete deep beams with small shear span-to-depth (a/d) ratios are common elements in structures. However, there are few experimental results on the behaviour of FRP reinforced concrete deep beams and no specific modelling techniques exist in design codes for such members. The objectives of this...
An implicit assumption of both audit regulation and research is that more auditor independence and more auditor expertise are better for society because they increase investor confidence and participation in markets. To test this assumption, I conduct a multi-period experiment where investors...
Infant face and throat replicas are used in research laboratories to compare the effectiveness of different valved holding chamber and face mask designs. The use of soft face models is thought to provide a better representation of mask dead volume and face mask seal than hard face models....
Pile-to-pile mechanical connections are used when the depth of the soil layers with sufficient bearing strength exceeds the standard pile length and extensions are needed to reach the deep stable soil. Mechanical connectors permit a safe transmission of forces while meeting strength and...
This study focuses on the motion of a hollow flexible tube conveying a flowing fluid, also known as the garden-hose instability. This system becomes unstable when the fluid moving through the pipe exceeds a critical flow rate. This non-linear dynamical system involves complex fluid-structure...
