Tension Stiffening Effect in RC Beams with Steel Fiber

Shotcrete for Underground Support VIII
This proceedings contains papers presented at the Eighth International Conference on Shotcrete for Underground Support, which took place in Campos do Jordão, Brazil, in April 1999. It...

Stronger Longer
Like many older concrete bridges, the Sierrita de la Cruz Creek Bridge, a 1957 crossing near Amarillo, Texas, suffered from concrete deterioration. When the Texas Department of Transportation...

Preliminary Assessment of Bacteria Abundance in Rivers of the Pantanal Wetlands -- Brazil
Heterothrophic bacteria play an important role in the carbon flux of aquatic environments, specially in flooded areas, where they are considered to be a source of organic matter. They...

Composites Enhance Timber Bridges
Two relatively new technologies are available for reinforcing or strengthening timber bridges with fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs). The first consists in reinforcing the tension side...

Gap Analysis for Durability of Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composite in Civil Infrastructure
Prepared by the Civil Engineering Research Foundation. This report provides the results of a study on what is known and not known about the use of...

Closing in on Approval
A lack of qualification criteria and design standards has hindered some engineers from using fiber-reinforced polymers to restore concrete structures. But several organizations—among them,...

Quality Check
Composite materials, also known as fiber reinforced polymers (FRPs), have traditionally been reserved for aerospace engineering applications because of their high cost. FRPs'...

Emerging Materials for Civil Infrastructure
State of the Art
Prepared by the Emerging Materials Committee of the Materials Division of ASCE. This report presents a review of the state of the art on emerging materials...

Concrete Connections
A new application of polymer composites involves the repair and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete frame connections. Test results from a pilot study conducted at the California State...

Glass Rebar's Growing Pain
Although engineers have used glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) reinforcing bar in applications as diverse as winery roofs and bridge decks, a lack of standards and understanding by...
