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...
Gradient-TD methods are a new family of learning algorithms that are stable and convergent under a wider range of conditions than previous reinforcement learning algorithms. In particular, gradient-TD algorithms enable off-policy problems---problems where the distribution of the data is different...
High-performance steel bars manufactured to conform to ASTM A1035-11 have different metallurgy and microstructure than conventional reinforcing steel. These changes result in an effective yield strength significantly higher than conventional ASTM A615 steel while also being less susceptible to...
