  • Elongation Tolerance for Short Tendons in Post-Tensioned Building
           Structures
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONElongations are a key to determining the forces inside post-tensioned tendons. Post-tensioning (PT) force is applied by calibrated hydraulic jacks and pumps. Once the force is applied and the wedges are seated, it is impractical to assess the actual ...

  • Behavior of Steel Fiber-Reinforced High-Strength Concrete Columns under
           Different Loads
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONIn recent years, the use of high-strength concrete (HSC) has steadily increased in structural applications, especially for the construction of lower-story columns of high-rise buildings, bridges, and foundation piles. HSC exhibits higher durability ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Influence of Width-to-Effective Depth Ratio on Shear Strength of
           Reinforced Concrete Elements without Web Reinforcement
    • Abstract: INTRODUCTIONThe shear strength of reinforced concrete elements without web reinforcement is affected by different parameters. The influence of some of these factors is well-recognized by the scientific community (tensile strength of concrete, longitudinal reinforcement ratio p, shear span-depth ...

  • Cyclic Loading Test for Walls of Aspect Ratio 1.0 and 0.5 with Grade 550
           MPa (80 Ksi) Shear Reinforcing Bars
    • Abstract: INTRODUCTIONIn the construction of nuclear power plants (NPPs), many large-diameter reinforcing bars are used in massive reinforced concrete (RC) walls, which significantly deteriorates the constructability and economy of the walls.1 Thus, to reduce the amount of reinforcement, the use of ...
