Numerical modeling of time to corrosion induced cover cracking in reinforced concrete using soft-computing based methods
Reinforced concrete (RC) is one of the most commonly used composite materials in construction industry. Corrosion of reinforcing steel embedded in concrete is a crucial issue leading deterioration of RC structure. In this ...
Strength and permeability properties of self-compacting concrete with cold bonded fly ash lightweight aggregate
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2015-01-15)
This paper presents the results of an experimental study on the hardened characteristics of the self-compacting concretes made with cold bond fly ash lightweight aggregates. Binary and ternary use of fly ash (FA) and silica ...
Predictive models of the flexural overstrength factor for steel thin-walled circular hollow section beams
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2015-09)
Circular hollow section (CHS) steel beams are widely used in both mechanical and civil applications. CHS members are mainly subjected to bending. The flexural overstrength factor (namely the ratio between the ultimate ...
Explicit formulation of drying and autogenous shrinkage of concretes with binary and ternary blends of silica fume and fly ash
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2015-09-30)
Shrinkage is generally considered as an important durability property of hardened concrete. During the drying process, free and absorbed water is lost from the concrete. When the drying shrinkage is restrained, cracks can ...
