BS 8110-1: 1997: Structural use of concrete - Part 1: Code of practice for design and construction

This a part of BS 8110 offers options for the structural use of concrete in structures and constructions, except bridges and structural concrete made with excessive alumina cement. The innovations for robustness were ready at the assumption that each one load-bearing parts, e. g. slabs, columns and partitions are of concrete.

Energy Geostructures

Strength geostructures are a huge innovation within the box of origin engineering and are spreading speedily in the course of the global. they enable the procurement of a renewable and fresh resource of power which might be used for heating and cooling constructions. This know-how the structural function of geostructures with the strength offer, utilizing the primary of shallow geothermal strength.

Smart Composites Mechanics and Design

Shrewdpermanent Composites: Mechanics and layout addresses the present development within the mechanics and layout of shrewdpermanent composites and multifunctional constructions. Divided into 3 components, it covers characterization of houses, analyses, and layout of assorted complex composite fabric structures with an emphasis at the coupled mechanical and non-mechanical behaviors.

4 nm, which might give some indication of the possible portion of the gel pores in the UHPC matrix at an age of 28 days and so provide some additional information on the effect of internal curing on the pore system. All mixtures containing SAP show on average higher values than The evaluation of the most frequent pore diameter (maximum of the pore size distribution curve) showed, as expected, that for all mixtures investigated this representative diameter decreases with increasing concrete age, and the corresponding height of the peaks becomes lower.

The strains were measured continuously by four strain gauges glued to the inner side of the steel ring, providing information on the magnitude of these deformations. These values were used for calculating tensile stresses in concrete according to the equations proposed in Hossain & Weiss 2004. Since the stresses due to restrained autogenous deformation should be investigated at the place of origin, an outer steel ring was used in addition to the inner ring. It served as a part of the “mould” when producing the concrete annulus and subsequently as protection against desiccation at the circumference of concrete annulus.
