  1. 1. Fracture mechanics studies of non-yielding materials like concrete : modelling of tensile fracture and applied strength analyses

    University dissertation from Division of Building Materials, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Per-Johan Gustafsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1985]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cracking; corners; test-specimens; strength; tension; fracture mechanics; strain localization; size-effect; flexural strength; LEFM; fictitious crack model; Weibull; FEM; pipes; shear strength; concrete; diagonal tension;

    Abstract : Fracture mechanics studies of non-yielding materials are presented. The studies are based on theoretical models for the macroscopical mechanical behaviour of materials during tensile stress induced fracture. A number of applied numercal analysis are indicated. READ MORE

    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

  4. 4. Strength Criteria on Grouting Agents for Hard Rock- Laboratory studies performed on gelling liquid and cementitious grout

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Magnus Axelsson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; laboratory study; colloidal silica; rheology; shear strength; Grout; erosion; strength; cement; yield stress; silica sol;

    Abstract : Grouting is usually successful in excavations at moderate depths and groundwater inflow. At great depths, in post-grouting or in rock with a large inflow of water, grouting is more problematic due to the forces from groundwater. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of deep excavations in soft clay on the immediate sourroundings-Analysis of the possibility to predict deformations and reactions against the retaining system

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Abstract : When excavating in an urban environment, the evaluation of the magnitude and distribution of ground movements is an important part of the design process, since excessive movements can damage adjacent buildings and utilities. In order to minimize movement of the surrounding soil, a retaining wall support system is used for deep excavations to provide lateral support. READ MORE
