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 ...
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 ...
Evaluation and modeling of ultimate bond strength of corroded reinforcement in reinforced concrete elements
Bond deterioration between the reinforcement and surrounding concrete is one of the crucial reasons for the structural degradation in the steel-concrete composite structures. The assessment of bond deterioration due to ...
A novel formulation of the flexural overstrength factor for steel beams
The ductile design of steel structures is directly influenced by the flexural behaviour of steel beams,which should be sufficient to allowplastic hinges to rotate until the collapsemechanismis completely developed. To ...
