Improved Design-Oriented Confinement Models for FRP-Wrapped Concrete Cylinders based on Statistical Analyses
This paper introduces improved design-oriented confinement models for cylindrical concrete members wrapped with fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites based on a rigorous statistical evaluation of a large database. As ...
Strengthening Slender Reinforced Concrete Columns Using High-Modulus Bonded Longitudinal Reinforcement for Buckling Control
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2015-04)
This paper introduces a model for strengthening slender reinforced concrete columns. The proposed technique aims at controlling second-order lateral deflections using longitudinal high-modulus bonded reinforcement, thereby ...
Benchmarking numerical freeze/thaw models
Hydraulic and strength performance of three cement-stabilized soils subjected to cycles of freezing and thawing
(NRC Research Press, 2015-03)
A total of 108 specimens were prepared to examine the hydraulic performance and strength performance of nine different cement-stabilized soils under unexposed and freeze–thaw exposed conditions. Specimens from each mix ...
Evaluating Impact Resonance Testing as a Tool for Predicting Hydraulic Conductivity and Strength Changes in Cement-Stabilized Soils
(American Society of Civil Engineering, 2015)
In this paper the impact resonance (IR) test method is used as a nondestructive tool to examine the curing progression, freeze/thaw (f/t) resistance, and healing potential of cement-stabilized soils. Resonant frequency ...
Statistical Sample Size for Quality Control Programs of Cement-Based Solidification/Stabilization
(NRC Press, 2015)
Sampling requirements for the quality control (QC) of cement-based solidification/stabilization (S/S) construction cells do not currently specify the sample size considering the accuracy of the estimated effective hydraulic ...
