    • Abstract: INTRODUCTIONCorbels are short cantilevers used to transfer concentrated loads to columns. Figure 1 includes an illustration of a reinforced concrete corbel and some of the relevant nomenclature. Because of the change in geometry and the presence of a concentrated load, corbels demonstrate nonlinear ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Innovative Self-Centering Concrete Beam-Column Connection Reinforced Using
           Shape Memory Alloy
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONAlthough the capacity design philosophy ensures a safe design of reinforced concrete (RC) moment-resisting frames-that is, with a small probability of collapse at design earthquake ground-motion intensities-conventional concrete connections may ...

  • Maximum Torsional Reinforcement of Reinforced Concrete Beams Subjected to
           Pure Torsion
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONIn design codes such as ACI 318-14,1 EC2-04,2 CSA-14,3 and JSCE-07,4 different equations are used for the shear strength calculation of reinforced concrete (RC) members, while those used to calculate the torsional strength of RC members are almost ...

  • Shear Tests on Composite Dowel Rib Connectors in Cracked Concrete
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONIn steel-concrete composite girders, rib shear connectors can be used to transfer shear forces between the concrete slab and the steel section. Rib shear connectors are produced in burning regular recesses into the webs of steel members. After ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls without Special Boundary Elements
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONThe use of reinforced concrete structural walls to resist lateral loads from earthquakes and wind in reinforced concrete buildings is common. Walls are typically designed to remain elastic for wind loads; however, during strong earthquake shaking, ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Flexural Testing of Circular Concrete-Filled Tubes without Axial Forces
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONThe use of concrete-steel composite modules and concrete-filled steel tubes (CFTs) in construction practice is a relatively recent occurrence when compared to traditional structural materials such as reinforced concrete (Probst et al. 2010; Sawab et ...

  • Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Slabs under Low-Velocity Impact
    • Abstract: The paper presents a series of 15 reinforced concrete (RC) slab tests subjected to low-velocity impacts with different impact energies, diameter, and shape of impactor. The discussion presented herein only refers to flat impactors (Series F). Tests are very well reported and failure was described ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Strengthening of a Bridge Using Post-Tensioned Near.Surface-Mounted Carbon
           Fiber-Reinforced Polymer in Multi-Hazard Environment
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONBecause of the limited budget to maintain the quality and safety of constructed facilities, sustainable infrastructure is a high priority in transportation agencies. Existing bridges are frequently exposed to corrosive environments due to the use of ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Experimental Behavior of Glass Fiber-Reinforced Polymer- Reinforced
           Concrete Columns under Lateral Cyclic Load
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONThe use of fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs) as a construction material has increased in recent years, primarily because of their noncorrodible nature and high tensile strength. FRP bars have high strength-to-weight ratios, relatively high fatigue ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Instantaneous Crack Width Calculation for Steel Fiber- Reinforced Concrete
           Flexural Members
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONThe adoption of steel or polypropylene fibers embedded in concrete in construction practice has grown considerably over the last two or three decades. Applications of the material are now common practice in the Australian infrastructure sector for ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)

  • Monitoring Damage in Concrete Columns Using Ultrasonic Tomography
    • Abstract: INTRODUCTIONQuality control and quality assurance (QC/QA) of infrastructure elements have become an important issue to the United States.1 Specifically, the evaluation of concrete structures immediately after an extreme event, such as an earthquake, to determine extent of internal, non-visible ...

  • Investigation on Punching Behavior of Pile Cap under Column Reinforced by
           Section Steel Truss
    • Abstract: (ProQuest: denotes formulae omitted.)INTRODUCTIONSince the 1960s, many investigations conducted over nearly half a century have demonstrated that the pile cap during punching failure-a disturbed region-no longer meets the Bernoulli hypothesis of linear strain distribution. Its bearing system has ... (Publication: ACI Structural Journal)
