  1. 1. Anchorage in Concrete Structures : Numerical and Experimental Evaluations of Load-Carrying Capacity of Cast-in-Place Headed Anchors and Post-Installed Adhesive Anchors

    Author : Rasoul Nilforoush; Lennart Elfgren; Norbert Randl; Karin Lundgren; Manouchehr Hassanzadeh; Richard Malm; Lars-Erik Persson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Headed anchor; Anchor bolt; Adhesive anchor; Concrete cone breakout; Concrete splitting; Pullout loading; Size effect; Member thickness; Anchor head size; Orthogonal surface reinforcement; Concrete Strength; High-strength concrete; Cracked concrete; Steel fiber-reinforced concrete; Sustained loading; Creep behavior; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Various anchorage systems including both cast-in-place and post-installed anchors have been developed for fastening both non-structural and structural components to concrete structures. The need for increased flexibility in the design of new structures and strengthening of existing concrete structures has led to increased use of various metallic anchors in practice. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrophobic Impregnation of Concrete Structures : Effects on Concrete Properties

    Author : Anders Selander; Johan Silfwerbrand; Jan Trägårdh; Mårten Janz; Andreas Gerdes; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydrophobic impregnation; silane; siloxane; concrete; surface treatment; water repellent agent; building protection; impregnering; betong; silan; siloxan; ytbehandling; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract : Hydrophobic impregnations often referred to as water repellent agents, today mainly consisting of alkylalkoxysilanes, are often used on concrete to prolong the service life of the structure. This is accomplished by protecting the reinforcement bars from chlorides or by changing the moisture content inside. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design for 3D Concrete Printing : Optimisation Through Integrated Workflows

    Author : Jose Hernández Vargas; Johan Silfwerbrand; Helena Westerlind; Roberto Naboni; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 3D concrete printing; digital fabrication; concrete structures; additive manufacturing; robotic fabrication; design for manufacturing; structural optimisation; functionally graded concrete; topology optimisation.; 3D-betongutskrift; digital tillverkning; betongkonstruktioner; additiv tillverkning; robotstyrd tillverkning; design för tillverkning; strukturell optimering; funktionellt graderad betong; topologioptimering.; Betongbyggnad; Concrete Structures;

    Abstract : The transition from conventional cast concrete to 3D Concrete Printing (3DCP) marks a paradigm shift by directly depositing fresh concrete layer upon layer according to a digital model without the need for a formwork. This technology offers the possibility of achieving innovative and complex geometries in an automated process. READ MORE

  4. 4. Safety Evaluation of Concrete Structures with Nonlinear Analysis

    Author : Hendrik Schlune; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; concrete; reliability; nonlinear analysis; modelling uncertainty; model updating; concrete structures; safety format; structural identification;

    Abstract : Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world. To obtain effective new constructions and to use existing concrete structures in an optimal way, accurate structural models are needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Moisture Conditions and Frost Resistance of Concrete in Hydraulic Structures

    Author : Martin Rosenqvist; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydraulic Structures; Hydro Power; Concrete Dams; Concrete; Frost Resistance; Scaling; Spalling; Moisture Absorption; Macroscopic Ice Lens Growth;

    Abstract : Owing to the winter conditions in Sweden, the effects of frost action may have a considerable impact on the deterioration of concrete. Both superficial and internal damage, which are suspected to have been caused by frost action, have been found in concrete in hydraulic structures. READ MORE
