  1. 1. Cracking in Reinforced Concrete Structures Due to Imposed Deformations

    Author : Agnes Nagy; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; minimum reinforcement; cracking; softening; shrinkage; cooling; imposed deformations; conversion formula; static E-modulus; damping coefficient; resonance frequency; dynamic E-modulus; constitutive model; thermal stress; hydration process; reinforced concrete structure; early age; crack control; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with modeling of the cracking process in reinforced concrete due to imposed deformations. Cracking is investigated both at early ages, during hydration, and at mature age when the final properties of the concrete are reached. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of Asphalt Field Cores with Simple Performance Tester and X-ray Computed Tomography

    Author : Florentina Angela Farcas; Björn Birgisson; Xiaohu Lu; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; asphalt mixture; dynamic modulus; flow number; simple performance tester; X-ray computed tomography; air voids distribution;

    Abstract : The importance of aggregate structure and air voids distribution for asphalt mixture rutting and cracking performance has been well established on the basis of experience and is well documented in the literature. Past and current investigations are limited to assessment of performance based on macroscopic behavior due to the difficulty associated with the quantitative measurement and analysis of the internal structure of asphalt mixtures.

  3. 3. Non-contact surface wave measurements on pavements

    Author : Henrik Bjurström; Nils Rydén; Björn Birgisson; Jinying Zhu; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; seismic testing; asphalt concrete; dynamic modulus; non-contact measurements; rolling measurements; surface waves; Lamb waves; MEMS microphones; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Abstract : In this thesis, nondestructive surface wave measurements are presented for characterization of dynamic modulus and layer thickness on different pavements and cement concrete slabs. Air-coupled microphones enable rapid data acquisition without physical contact with the pavement surface. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Absorbing Material Concepts for Automotive Accident Injury Prevention

    Author : Rickard Juntikka; KTH; []
    Keywords : Head impact; energy absorption; cellular materials; automotive; dynamic; pedestrian; interior; compression; shear; finite element analysis; optimisation;

    Abstract : Although automotive safety has experienced a rapiddevelopment during the last decades, traffic related accidentsrank very high in many countries in terms of cause of death.Statistics show that the head is the body region mostfrequently injured in motor vehicle accidents and the primarycause of death is head injuries.

  5. 5. Evaluation of Low Temperature Damage in Asphalt Mixtures with Non-Contact Resonance Testing

    Author : Abiy Bekele; Denis Jelagin; William Buttlar; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Asphalt concrete; dynamic modulus; non-contact excitation; resonance testing; thermally induced damage; viscoelasticity; Asfaltbetong; beröringsfri excitation; resonansfrekvens; resonansprovning; styvhetsmodul; Building Materials; Byggnadsmaterial;

    Abstract : Thetemperature induceddamage in asphalt mixtureshas always been a major distress that requires a substantialconsiderationin the asphalt industry. One of the most important aspects of studying temperature induceddamage is developing a practical test method for evaluation of the material’s resistanceto it. READ MORE
