Experimental Analysis on Shrinkage and Swelling in Ordinary Concrete
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2017-05-22)
The paper deals with the experimental determination of shrinkage development during concrete ageing. Three concrete mixtures were made. They differed in the amount of cement in the fresh mixture, 300, 350, and 400kg/m3. ...
Pilot evaluation of a fracture process zone in a modified compact tension specimen by X-ray tomography
(Italian Group of Fracture, 2017-10-03)
In the case of quasi-brittle material, there is a zone of non-linear behaving material, near the crack tip. A major part of this zone forms a so-called fracture process zone (FPZ), where mechanisms of material toughening ...
Cast Screws as Shear Anchors for Composite Slabs
Composite slabs consist of trapezoidal steel sheeting and concrete cover. The steel sheeting serves as both, a lost framework and a tension bearing member after hardening of concrete. The longitudinal shear between the ...
Behaviour of cement composites with lightweight and heavyweight aggregates at high temperatures
(Budapest University of Technology and Economics, 2017-03-24)
This paper presents new results of the research of the influence of individual input components done on the behaviour of cement based composite materials exposed to high temperatures. A new approach of this research lies ...
Flexure response of thermal loaded concrete specimens by acoustic emission method
(EDP Sciences – Web of Conferences, 2017-05-24)
The response to fire of concrete structural members depends on the thermal, mechanical, and deformation properties of concrete. These properties vary significantly with temperature depending on the composition and ...
