  1. 1. Shear in Concrete Structural Elements Subjected to Dynamic Loads

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Johan Magnusson; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamic load; initial response; shear failure; shear capacity; numerical simulations; bond; shear span; support reactions; Dynamisk last; initial respons; skjuvbrott; skjuvkapacitet; numeriska simuleringar; förankring; skjuvspännvidd; upplagsreaktioner; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Concrete structural elements subjected to severe dynamic loads such as explosions at close range may cause shear failures. In the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 two concrete columns on the ground level were reported to have failed in shear. READ MORE

  2. 2. FRP shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beams

    University dissertation from Luleå

    Author : Gabriel Sas; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fiber reinforced polymers; shear; reinforced concrete; strengthening; model; comparison; literature review; Civil engineering and architecture - Building engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggnadsteknik; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The shear failure mechanisms of flexural reinforced concrete (RC) members is highly complex; its precise details cannot be explained with simple analytical relationships, and are the topic of considerable scientific debate. The studies described and examined the three most used shear theories in the world – the fixed angle truss model (45°TM), the variable angle truss model (VAT), and modified compression field theory (MCFT).

  3. 3. Shear and Torsion Interaction in Prestressed Hollow Core Slabs

    University dissertation from Luleå

    Author : Helén Broo; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; shear-torsion capacity; hollow core unit; shear and torsion interaction; non-linear finite element analyses; hollow core slab; precast prestressed concrete; hollow core floor;

    Abstract : There are many applications in which hollow core units are subjected to combined torsion and shear, for example in floors supported on three edges and in floors with openings. The traditional calculation method for combined shear and torsion in hollow-core units adds stresses from various sources without taking into account deformations and compatibility within the unit or restraint at the boundaries.

  4. 4. Shear and Torsion in Concrete Structures Non-linear Finte Element Analysis in Design and Assessment

    University dissertation from Luleå

    Author : Helén Broo; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; torsion; box-girder bridge; hollow core unit; hollow core floor; non-linear finite element analysis.; shear; prestressed concrete; Reinforced concrete;

    Abstract : For structural design and assessment of reinforced concrete members, non-linear finite element analysis has become an important tool. However, design and assessment of shear and torsion are still done with simplified analytical or empirical design methods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural assessment procedures for existing concrete bridges Experiences from failure tests of the Kiruna Bridge

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Niklas Bagge; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Anchorage; carbon fibre reinforced polymers; concrete; existing bridges; finite element analysis; flexure; full-scale test; load-carrying capacity; residual prestress force; punching; safety verification; shear; structural assessment; structural behaviour; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Assessing existing bridges is an important task in the sustainable management ofinfrastructure. In practice, structural bridge assessments are usually conducted usingtraditional and standardised methods, despite knowledge that these methods oftenprovide conservative estimates. READ MORE
