Experimental and Analytical Behavior of Sandwich Composite Beams: Comparison of Natural and Synthetic Materials
In this study, the flexural behavior of sandwich composite beams made of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) skins and light-weight cores are studied. The focus is on the comparison of natural and synthetic fiber and core ...
Nucleation and arrest of dynamic slip on a pressurized fault
Elevated pore pressure can lead to reactivation of slip on pre-existing fractures and faults when the static Coulomb failure is reached locally. As the pressurized region spreads diffusively, slip can accumulate quasi-statically ...
An Analytical Approach to Assess Quality Control Sample Sizes of Cement-Based Solidification/Stabilization
(NRC Research Press, 2017)
This paper presents an analytical approach to selecting the sample size required to achieve acceptable quality control in a cement-based solidification/stabilization construction cell program intended for the treatment/containment ...
Short Concrete Columns Reinforced with GFRP Rebars under Eccentric Loading
(Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, 2017-05-31)
In this paper, the compressive performance of short concrete columns reinforced with glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) composite rebars is evaluated. A total of fourteen 500 mm long concrete specimens with square ...
Strengthening Short Concrete Columns Using Longitudinally Bonded CFRP Laminates
This paper investigates the behavior of short concrete columns strengthened with externally bonded longitudinal carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates combined with transverse basalt fiber-reinforced polymer ...
Numerical Analysis of Longwall Mining Layout for a Wyoming Trona Mine
At Solvay Mine, located in southwestern Wyoming, a subhorizontal trona seam is mined at depths of between 460-490 m using mechanized room-and-pillar and longwall mining methods. The stratigraphy at the mine generally ...
