  • Method for computing the shear capacity of prestressed reinforced concrete
           beams based on truss-arch model
    • Pages: 574 - 586
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 574-586, October 2018.
      Purpose The calculation of the shear capacity of inclined section for prestressed reinforced concrete beams is an important topic in the design of concrete members. The purpose of this paper, based on the truss-arch model, is to analyze the shear mechanism in prestressed reinforced concrete beams and establish the calculation formula for shear capacity. Design/methodology/approach Considering the effect of the prestressed reinforcement axial force on the angle of the diagonal struts and regression coefficient of softening cocalculation of shear capacity is established. According to the shape of the cracks of prestressed reinforced concrete beams under shear compression failure, the tie-arch model for the calculation of shear capacity is established. Shear-failure-test beam results are collected to verify the established formula for shear bearing capacity. Findings Through theoretical analysis and experimental beam verification, it is confirmed in this study that the truss-arch model can be used to analyze the shear mechanism of prestressed reinforced concrete members accurately. The calculation formula for the angle of the diagonal struts chosen by considering the effect of prestress is accurate. The relationship between the softening coefficient of concrete and strength of concrete that is established is correct. Considering the effect of the destruction of beam shear plasticity of the concrete on the surface crack shape, the tie-arch model, which is established where the arch axis is parabolic, is applicable. Originality/value The formula for shear capacity of prestressed reinforced concrete beams based on this theoretical model can guarantee the effectiveness of the calculation results when the structural properties vary significantly. Engineers can calculate the parameters of prestressed reinforced concrete beams by using the shear capacity calculation formula proposed in this paper.

  • Experimental study on prestressed concrete hollow slabs in service
           strengthened with prestressed CFRP plates
    • Pages: 587 - 602
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 587-602, October 2018.
      Purpose Most existing studies are confined to model beam tests, which cannot reflect the actual strengthening effects provided by prestressed carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) plates to existing bridges. Hence, the actual capacity for strengthening existing bridges with prestressed CFRP plates is becoming an important concern for researchers. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach Static load tests of in-service prestressed concrete hollow slabs before and after strengthening are conducted. Based on the results of the tests, the failure characteristics, failure mechanism and bending performance of the slabs are compared and analyzed. Nonlinear finite element method is also used to calculate the flexural strength of the strengthened beams prestressed with CFRP plates. Findings Test results show that prestressed CFRP plate strengthening technology changes the failure mode of hollow slabs, delays the development of deflection and cracks, raises cracking and ultimate load-carrying capacity and remarkably improves mechanical behavior of the slab. In addition, the nonlinear finite element analyses are in good agreement with the test results. Originality/value Strengthening with prestressed CFRP plates has greater advantages compared to traditional CFRP plate strengthening technology and improves active material utilization. The presented finite element method can be applied in the flexural response calculations of strengthened beams prestressed with CFRP plates. The research results provide technical basis for maintenance and reinforcement design of existing bridges.

  • Risk reliability-based underwater inspection method for jacket platforms
           in Indonesia
    • Pages: 603 - 615
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 603-615, October 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to carry out the application of risk reliability-based underwater inspection (RReBUI). Design/methodology/approach The consequence of failure factor is calculated qualitatively in accordance with the risk-based underwater inspection (RBUI) method but the criteria are modified as an adjustment to the addition and combination of production and reliability information of the analyzed platforms. The probability of failure (PoF) is determined quantitatively by calculating the structure reliability index based on collapse failure mechanism in which the uncertainty of wave load is considered. The PoF criteria from the RBUI are re-modified to adjust the criterion with the highest and lowest reliability indexes obtained in RReBUI study. Selection of exposure category of the platform is still the same as the RBUI method. Findings The models of three offshore jacket platforms located in each of Java Sea and Natuna Sea were used for the RReBUI application. These six models were previously used in the traditional RBUI application. The results of RReBUI analysis indicated that including the environmental characteristics in the risk assessment resulted in more reliable inspection interval plans. Originality/value The drawback of RBUI is that it cannot be used for platforms spread over a distance or different areas, as the failure parameters of these platforms cannot be compared. Furthermore, the RBUI method does not consider the environmental characteristics in its risk assessment. Unlike RBUI, the purpose of RReBUI method is to assess the reliability of a platform based on both structural and environment characteristics. Therefore, the RReBUI method determines the risk of every platform quantitatively without having to compare the failure parameters based on expert justification. The application of RReBUI for jacket platforms has never been developed in Indonesia.

  • Influence of sulfuric and hydrochloric acid on the resistance of
           geopolymer cement with nano-silica additive for oil well cement
           application
    • Pages: 616 - 624
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 616-624, October 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to investigate the resistivity of geopolymer cement with nano-silica additive toward acid exposure for oil well cement application. Design/methodology/approach An experimental study was conducted to assess the acid resistance of fly ash-based geopolymer cement with nano-silica additive at a concentration of 0 and 1 wt.% to understand its effect on the strength and microstructural development. Geopolymer cement of Class C fly ash and API Class G cement were used. The alkaline activator was prepared by mixing the proportion of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solutions of 8 M and sodium silicate (Na2SiO3) using ratio of 1:2.5 by weight. After casting, the specimens were subjected to elevated curing condition at 3,500 psi and 130°C for 24 h. Durability of cement samples was assessed by immersing them in 15 wt.% of hydrochloric acid and 15 wt.% sulfuric acid for a period of 14 days. Evaluation of its resistance in terms of compressive strength and microstructural behavior were carried out by using ELE ADR 3000 and SEM, respectively. Findings The paper shows that geopolymer cement with 1 wt.% addition of nano-silica were highly resistant to sulfuric and hydrochloric acid. The strength increase was contributed by the densification of the microstructure with the addition of nano-silica. Originality/value This paper investigates the mechanical property and microstructure behavior of emerging geopolymer cement due to hydrochloric and sulfuric acids exposure. The results provide potential application of fly ash-based geopolymer cement as oil well cementing.

  • Analytical and numerical study of the serviceability performance of
           partial composite steel-FRP beams
    • Pages: 625 - 645
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 625-645, October 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to introduce a closed-form analytical solution to evaluate the nominal moment capacity and associated deflections of steel-FRP beam systems. The proposed solution takes into consideration the partial composite behavior resulting from the interfacial contact and slip between the subcomponents of the system. Design/methodology/approach The partial composite action theory was used to develop an elastic analytical solution for the deflection of simply supported composite steel-FRP beams subjected to a mid-span point load. The solution takes into consideration the partial composite behavior of the system that arises from the interlayer slip at the steel-FRP interface. Findings The developed analytical model is used to predict the nominal moment capacity of the composite beam and the load value at the onset of yielding in the steel subcomponent of the section. The distribution of shear forces induced in the steel fasteners due to the interfacial slip is also obtained analytically. A comparative study is conducted by comparing the analytical results to their counterparts resulting from finite element modeling of the composite steel-FRP system. The agreement between analytical results and finite element predictions validates the accuracy of the derived analytical solution for partial composite steel-FRP beams. Research limitations/implications The proposed solution applies only to the FRP strips and 6 mm steel bolts used in the study. Originality/value Recent studies revealed a promising efficiency of using mechanically fastened hybrid FRP sheets in strengthening steel beams. A major advantage of this technique is the ductile behavior of the steel-FRP system. The current paper introduces a closed-form analytical solution to evaluate the nominal moment capacity and associated deflections of steel-FRP beam systems. Forces developed at the steel-FRP interface due to the relative slip between both components are considered in the proposed analytical solution.

  • Non-linear delamination in two-dimensional functionally graded
           multilayered beam
    • Pages: 646 - 663
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 646-663, October 2018.
      Purpose A delamination fracture analysis of two-dimensional functionally graded multilayered end-loaded split beam configuration with non-linear mechanical behaviour of material is conducted. The beam is made of an arbitrary number of longitudinal layers. Perfect adhesion between layers is assumed. The material is two-dimensional functionally graded in the cross-section of each layer. Also, each layer has individual thickness and material properties. A delamination crack is located arbitrary along the beam height. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach The delamination fracture behaviour is investigated analytically in terms of the strain energy release rate by analysing the balance of the energy. An additional analysis of the delamination fracture is performed by applying the J-integral approach for verification. Findings The solutions derived are used to evaluate the effects of crack location, material gradients and material non-linearity on the delamination fracture behaviour of end-loaded split beam. The effect of material gradient on the distribution of the J-integral value along the crack front is elucidated too. Originality/value Delamination in the multilayered functionally graded end-loaded split beam exhibiting non-linear mechanical behaviour of the material is analysed assuming that the material property is distributed non-linearly in both thickness and width directions in each layer.

  • Quantification of weld size parameters for throat failure prevention in a
           brake flange axle weld subjected to torsional loading with structural
           stress approach
    • Pages: 664 - 674
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 664-674, October 2018.
      Purpose The brake reaction test performed on a rear axle assembly revealed that the brake flange weld could not sustain the load needed to pass the minimum requirement of the test. Evaluation of the failure mode indicated that the fracture of the weld originated at the root of the weld and cracked through the fusion zone of the weld instead of cracking through base material (toe failure). The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach A computational methodology is presented to quantify the critical parameters to prevent throat failure. The torsion dominated loading created high in-plane shear stress on the weld which can contribute significantly to the premature failure. Findings The failure through the fusion zone, often termed as weld throat/root failure, was not accounted for during the design phase by numerical simulation which led to the wrong conclusion that the design will pass the test requirement. Although weld sizing and weld penetration depth can explain such unexpected failure modes, fatigue life of this particular failure was still over-predicted using the Master SN curve formulation of structural stress approach which is well established for Mode I type of failure. Accounting for the shear component in the structural stress approach led to good correlation with the test specimen. Weld throat depth is a significant parameter contributing to throat failure. Practical implications The failure of the weld joining the brake flange and the tube of an axle is a high severity failure mode which can result in loss of vehicle control and injury or death and hence the failure should be prevented at any cost. Originality/value Most of the previous work of welded components relates to Mode I loading. There is very few research performed to discuss the Mode III loading and failure. This research illustrates the importance of considering the throat failure mode and quantifies the weld parameters to prevent such failures in design applications.

  • Study on behaviour of geometrically scaled glass reinforced epoxy tubes
           subjected to non-coincident quasi static-indentation
    • Pages: 675 - 692
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 675-692, October 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to study the behaviour of glass reinforced epoxy tubes subjected to repeated indentation loads at two non-coincident indentations 180° apart. Design/methodology/approach Four geometrically scaled specimens ranging from 100 to 400 mm diameter were used in repeated indentation tests. Force, displacement and damage growth were recorded for loading and unloading until the indenter returned to its original starting point. Findings Similar scaled trends were observed between the non-coincidental loadings. Unlike reported response form coincidental loadings, the responses from non-coincidental loadings yield lower values for bending stiffness and peak load. Research limitations/implications The differences in behaviour of the specimen between non-coincident loadings were attributed to reductions in fracture toughness and circumferential modulus. Practical implications Distant non-interacting damage and delamination around the circumference does reduce the structural performance. Originality/value Behaviour of composite tubes under different loading conditions, for example low speed impact or quasi static indentation, is widely studied, however little attention has been given to the repeated loading incidents.

  • Theoretical and experimental study on driving force and flow
           characteristics of damping control valve of shock absorber
    • Pages: 693 - 704
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 693-704, October 2018.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to study the flow characteristics of damping control valve of shock absorber, and obtain the minimum driving current required under different working conditions. Design/methodology/approach Based on the simplified model of the internal structure of damping control valve and the theory of fluid mechanics, the mathematical model of the damping control valve driving current under rated load is established. The test bench was designed to study the relationship between flow characteristics and driving current of the damping control valve. Findings The results show that the minimum driving current of switching and flowrate show a linear relationship and the minimum current required for the 4-1 switching is the largest that means the minimum current as long as meets the 4-1 switching to meet the needs of all levels switching. Originality/value These results of the theoretical and experimental study provide a reliable guide and reference for the design and application of damping control valve.

  • Investigating the in-plane flexibility of steel-deck composite floors in
           steel structures
    • Pages: 705 - 720
      Abstract: International Journal of Structural Integrity, Volume 9, Issue 5, Page 705-720, October 2018.
      Purpose It is common practice in structural engineering to assume floor diaphragms infinitely stiff in their own plane. But, most of the code provisions lack clarity and unity in categorising floor diaphragms and discussing their behaviour based on the seismic response of the structures. Besides, although many of these code provisions have presented simple techniques and formulations for determining the level of flexibility in floor diaphragms, the implementation of these techniques on more complex floor systems such as the steel-deck composite floors is still under question. The paper aims to discuss these issues. Design/methodology/approach In this study, an equivalent concrete floor is employed as a representative of in-plane diaphragm action of steel-deck composite floor, using simple modelling techniques in SAP2000 and the results are validated by complex structural models developed in ABAQUS. Afterwards, the equivalent floor is inserted to 3, 5 and 7 storey steel structures with 2, 3 and 5 plan aspect ratios in two categories of structures with rigid diaphragms and analogous structures with flexible diaphragms and the responses are compared to each other. Findings The results show that the proposed technique is an effective method for evaluating the diaphragm action of steel-deck composite floors. Additionally, it is concluded that, the boundary values of plan aspect ratio equal to 3 and λ coefficient equal to 0.5 in steel-deck composite floors, mentioned in code provisions for categorising diaphragms, are not always conservative and need to be scrutinised. Originality/value The proposed methodology provides simple framework for assessing the effects of in-plane flexibility of steel-deck composite on seismic response of steel structures.
