    Abstract : Dredging activities at ports and harbors are inevitable for safe navigation of ships and vessels. The outcomes of dredging are huge volumes of dredged materials, which can range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sands and gravels. The coarse sands and gravels can be directly used in civil engineering applications. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Joakim Albrektsson; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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

    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cohesive zone modelling; durability; moisture diffusion; Fibre reinforced polymer; adhesively bonded FRP steel joints; long-term performance;

    Abstract : Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites offer superior mechanical properties, such as specific strength and stiffness, corrosion resistance and light weight. Over the past four dec-ades, FRPs have been increasingly used for strengthening and repair of bridge structures, and more recently, in the manufacture of whole/hybrid FRP bridges. READ MORE
