  • Design and verification of reinforced concrete shell elements

    • Abstract: abstract: Reinforced concrete shell elements are relevant in several civil and industrial structures. It is important to know the methods for designing and verifying such elements. In this context, the present paper aims at describing the iterative three-layer method proposed by Colombo et al. This method is based on the Model Code/1990, and it can be applied in the design of shell elements. An additional method for verifying reinforced concrete shell elements is also proposed and discussed. This one is based on the multilayer method proposed by Kollegger et al. Formulations as well as numerical examples are presented for both methods. The design proposed by Colombo et al. is verified by using the methodology based on the multilayer method. Although both methods lead to the equilibrium between applied and resistance loads using approximately the same amount of reinforcement, especially for small neutral axes in relation to the element thickness, one may conclude that the three-layer design method has limitations due to not considering strain compatibility along the thickness of the element and due to the impossibility to calculate the compression reinforcement. Although the multilayer method overcomes such limitations, it is a verification method, and more studies about its use in the design of reinforced concrete shell elements are necessary.resumo: Os elementos de casca de concreto armado podem ser aplicados em diversas estruturas civis e industriais, sendo importante conhecer os métodos de dimensionamento e verificação desses elementos. Dentro desse contexto, o presente trabalho tem como objetivo descrever o método iterativo das três chapas proposto por Colombo et al., o qual se baseia nas ideias do Model Code/1990 e é aplicado no dimensionamento dos elementos de casca. Um método adicional para verificação de elementos de casca de concreto armado também é proposto e discutido. Esse último se baseia no método das multicamadas de Kollegger et al. Tanto as formulações quanto exemplos numéricos de aplicação são apresentados para ambos os métodos. O dimensionamento proposto por Colombo et al. é verificado utilizando a metodologia baseada no método das multicamadas. Embora ambos os métodos levem ao equilíbrio entre esforços solicitantes e resistentes com aproximadamente a mesma quantidade de armadura, sobretudo para linhas neutras pequenas em relação à espessura do elemento, pode-se concluir que o método das três chapas possui limitações devido a não consideração da compatibilidade de deformações ao longo da espessura do elemento e à impossibilidade de dimensionar armaduras de compressão. O método das multicamadas supera tais limitações, mas é, a princípio, um método de verificação, havendo necessidade de mais estudos sobre a sua utilização no dimensionamento de elementos de casca de concreto armado.
  • Seismic analysis of reinforced concrete buildings with participating
           masonry infills

    • Abstract: ABSTRACT In this paper, seismic analyses are performed of a reinforced concrete frame building with participating masonry walls are carried out. The spectral method of the Brazilian code – ABNT 15421:2006 – was used to obtain the lateral seismic loads. The equivalent diagonal-strut model was employed to simulate the axial stiffness of the masonry walls in the frames, according to different formulations founded in literature. The main purpose is to evaluate the differences implemented by the different formulations for the equivalent strut on the seismic response. This paper also aims at comparing results obtained when the masonry stiffness is not considered under seismic loads. The results obtained are analyzed with the purpose of providing contributions for structural engineers in the design of framed structure buildings with participating masonry walls subjected to seismic loads.RESUMO Neste trabalho são realizadas análises sísmicas em edifício de concreto armado com sistema estrutural de pórticos preenchidos com alvenarias participantes. Para a determinação das forças sísmicas, utiliza-se o método espectral da ABNT NBR 15421:2006. Para a simulação da rigidez axial das alvenarias nos pórticos emprega-se o modelo de diagonal equivalente, segundo diversas expressões encontradas na literatura. O principal objetivo é avaliar as diferenças entre essas expressões da literatura para a diagonal equivalente na resposta sísmica. Outro objetivo é de comparar resultados ao se desconsiderar a rigidez das alvenarias sob a ação sísmica. Os resultados são comentados e fornecem contribuições a engenheiros estruturais para o projeto de estruturas aporticadas de edifícios com alvenarias participantes submetidos a ações sísmicas.
  • Behavior of CFA and H-section steel piles in lateral loading: experimental
           and numerical analysis

    • Abstract: abstract: The behavior of continuous flight auger (CFA) piles and steel H-section piles to lateral loading is investigated using numerical analyses supported by field tests. A three-dimensional finite element numerical model to lateral load is presented. The numerical model was validated with the results of twelve lateral load tests performed on CFA and steel H-section piles installed in two deposits of sandy soils. The three-dimensional approach proposed in this study is in good agreement with the response observed with the field tests, and thus represents a reliable soil-pile interaction for laterally loaded piles in sandy soil. Parametric analyses were used to assess the influence of relevant variables to lateral soil-pile interaction. Major findings of this paper indicate that the ultimate lateral load of short rigid piles is considerably more influenced by changes in soil-pile relative stiffness than that of long flexible units. Pile diameter and soil-pile interface friction are found to exert a marked effect on the lateral load of CFA piles, while soil dilatancy is found to play a minor influence on the response of CFA piles.resumo: O comportamento de estacas escavadas com trado em hélice contínua (CFA) e estacas metálicas de seção H sujeitas à cargas horizontais é investigado através de análises numéricas baseadas em resultados experimentais. O modelo numérico foi validado com os resultados de 12 ensaios de carregamento lateral de estacas realizados em estacas CFA e estacas metálicas de seção H instaladas em duas regiões de solos arenosos. A abordagem tridimensional proposta neste estudo está de acordo com a resposta observada nos ensaios de campo e, portanto, representa uma interação solo-estaca confiável para estacas carregadas lateralmente em solo arenoso. Análises paramétricas foram utilizadas para avaliar a influência de variáveis relevantes para a interação lateral solo-estaca. As principais descobertas deste trabalho indicam que a capacidade de carga lateral última de estacas rígidas curtas é consideravelmente mais influenciada por mudanças na rigidez relativa do solo-estaca do que no caso de estacas flexíveis longas. O diâmetro da estaca e o atrito da interface solo-estaca tem efeito significativo na capacidade de carga lateral das estacas CFA, enquanto a dilatância do solo exerce uma menor influência na resposta destas.
  • Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) - Investigation of crystallographic
           parameters of natural sands by backscattered electron diffraction

    • Abstract: abstract: This study involved analyzing several natural sands to ascertain the possible causes for distress due to ASR. The analyses were performed using the following techniques: X-ray diffractometry, accelerated mortar bar tests (AMBT), electron backscattering diffraction and elementary chemistry analyses, by FEG-SEM/EBSD/EDS. These experiments allowed identifying the presence of several mineral composites (such as microcline, anorthite, among others), as well as the microstructural-crystallographic planes of quartz (such as the Dauphiné type). From the results it could be inferred that the multiple techniques used, especially the FEG-SEM / EBSD, proved to be promising in the analysis of the ASR potential of sands for use in Portland cement mortars and concretes.resumo: Este estudo envolveu a análise de várias areias naturais para verificar as possíveis causas de manifestações patológicas pela ASR. As análises foram realizadas utilizando as seguintes técnicas: difratometria de raios X, testes acelerados de barra de argamassa (AMBT), a difração de elétrons retroespalhados e as análises químicas elementares, por FEG-SEM / EBSD / EDS. Esses experimentos permitiram identificar a presença de vários compósitos minerais (como microclina, anortita, entre outros), bem como os planos microestruturais-cristalográficos de quartzo (como o tipo Dauphiné). Dos resultados se pode inferir que as múltiplas técnicas utilizadas, especialmente a FEG-SEM/EBSD, mostraram ser promissoras na análise da reatividade potencial de areais para uso em argamassas e concretos de cimento Portland.
