Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACI 530.1-92/ ASCE 6-92/TMS 602-92)
Specifications for Masonry Structures (ACE 530.1-92/ASCE 6-92/TMS 602-92) is a joint effort of the American Concrete Institute, the American Society of Civil Engineers, and The Masonry...

Technical Note: STC-40 Shotcrete Adhesion In Situ Tester
It is essential that the shotcrete when reinforcing the rock mass achieves a good adhesive bond to the rock surface. The strength of that bond can be controlled by pull out testing either...

Bonded Polyester Concrete Overlays Used in California
Bonded polyester concrete overlays have been very successful in California in restoring and preserving bridge decks from damage by road salts. The polyester concrete system has been employed...

Bonded Tendon Debate
Bonded tendons—currently banned in bridge construction in the United Kingdom because of corrosion concerns—are getting a bum rap, says the author. Corrosion protection details of most...

Bonded Concrete Overlays for Rehabilitation of Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement
As a result of the 1991 Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA), significant funding is now available for the rehabilitation of the nation's Interstate highway system....

Use of High Strength By-Product Gypsum Bricks in Masonry Construction
A new research aimed at producing high strength masonry bricks to be bonded with several types of joint materials other than conventional cement mortar, is introduced in this paper. This...

High-Grade Concrete for the Single Permanent Shotcrete Lining Method
With the single permanent shotcrete lining method in underground construction in rock, a shotcrete layer placed subsequently to the application of the supporting shotcrete replaces the...

Bond Stress Test on Rock Anchor in Clayey Siltstone
Seventy five rock anchors with design loads of 556 to 2040 kips were required for the 1000-foot long, 125-foot high, concrete gravity, Lake Lynn Dam to comply with current FERC engineering...

Design and Construction of a Bonded Fiber Concrete Overlay of CRCP (Louisiana, Interstate Route 10, August 1990)
The purpose of this study was the design and construction of a bonded steel fiber reinforced concrete overlay on an existing 8-inch CRC pavement on Interstate 10 south of Baton Rouge,...
