  1. 1. Design of concrete pavements : design criteria for plain and lean concrete

    Author : Johan Söderqvist; Johan Silfwerbrand; Anders Lenngren; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : New road infrastructure projects are important and constitute of large investments that have to serve the society for a long time. The investments have to be durable at the lowest life cycle cost and the pavements have to sustain loads from increasing traffic intensity and heavy traffic loads. READ MORE

  2. 2. Durability of fire exposed concrete : Experimental Studies Focusing on Sti„ffness & Transport Properties

    Author : Joakim Albrektsson; Johan Silfwerbrand; Lars Boström; Manouchehr Hassanzadeh; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Concrete; Fire; Polypropylene fibres; Durability; Tunnel; Damage assessment; Ultrasonic pulse velocity; Water absorption; Chloride migration; DIC; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Road and rail tunnels are important parts of the modern infrastructure. High strength concrete (HSC) is commonly used for tunnels and other civil engineering structures, since it allows high load carrying capacity and long service life. In general, Swedish road and rail tunnels should be designed for a service life of 120 years. READ MORE

  3. 3. Form pressure generated by self-compacting concrete : influence of thixotropy and structural behaviour at rest

    Author : Peter Billberg; Johan Silfwerbrand; Kamal Khayat; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; self-compacting concrete; thixotropy; structural build-up; form pressure; rheometer; viscometer; instrumented pressure tube; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Self-compacting concrete (SCC) offers rational and fast casting process since it merely has to be poured, or pumped, into the formwork without any compaction work needed. But this can be at the cost of high form pressure. However, reported results show that SCC can act thixotropically, i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. DEM Modelling of Unbound Granular Materials for Transport Infrastructures : On soil fabric and rockfill embankments

    Author : Ricardo de Frias Lopez; Johan Silfwerbrand; Leena Korkiala-Tanttu; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Discrete element method; granular materials; particle-scale behaviour; particle degradation; permanent deformation; resilient modulus; rockfill embankment; soil fabric; Diskreta elementmetoden; grusmaterial; verkningssätt på partikelnivå; nedbrytning; permanent deformation; styvhet; stenfylld bank; skelettstruktur; Transport Infrastructure; Transportinfrastruktur;

    Abstract : Unbound granular materials (UGM) are widely used as load-bearing layers and for embankment construction within transport infrastructures. These play a significant role on operation and maintenance of transportation systems. However, pavement and railway engineering still today rely heavily on empirical models based on macroscopic observations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Granular Materials for Transport Infrastructures : Mechanical performance of coarse–fine mixtures for unbound layers through DEM analysis

    Author : Ricardo de Frias Lopez; Johan Silfwerbrand; Jonas Ekblad; Björn Birgisson; Jörgen Johansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; discrete element method; force distribution; gap-graded mixtures; granular materials; particle-scale behaviour; permanent deformation; resilient modulus; soil fabric; binära blandningar; diskreta elementmetoden; grusmaterial; kraftöverföring; verkningssätt på partikelnivå; permanent deformation; skelettstruktur; styvhet; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Granular materials are widely used as unbound layers within the infrastructure system playing a significant role on performance and maintenance. However, fields like pavement and railway engineering still heavily rely on empirically-based models owing to the complex behaviour of these materials, which partly stems from their discrete nature.
