This proceedings, Plastics Composites for 21st Century Construction, consists of papers presented at a session of the 1993 ASCE Annual Convention...

Slip-Lining Solution
Grouting the annular space between a corroded sewer pipe and newly installed liner pipe is a stage of a typical sewer line rehabilitation project which contains hidden problems and difficulties....

Dynamic Response of Fibre-Reinforced Composite Plates Under Distributed Impact Loads

Dynamic Inelastic Analysis of Tall Buildings
Members with undesirably early formed plastic hinges as well as excessive conservatism introduced in the preliminary design of tall buildings can be identified by the behavior state study...

Rheological Properties of Microfine Cement Grouts with Additives

Plastic Waste for Low-Weight Embankments

Design Cable-stayed Bridge for Cost Effectiveness and Safety
Innovative design approach is needed to enhance the prestigious status enjoyed by cable-stayed bridges. The present paper aims at such a goal of cost effectiveness and safety by providing...

Rate-Dependent Plasticity Representation for Energy-Absorbing Materials
A three dimensional rate-dependent plasticity constitutive model is developed for rigid polyurethane foams. In the model, the material is decomposed into skeleton and solid matrix from...

Comparative Evaluation of Plasticity Theories Against Tension-Torsion Test at Finite Strain
This paper investigates and evaluates three hardening theories against a variety of nonproportional loading experiments on tubes made of annealed copper. It was concluded that the isotropic...

Nonisothermal Viscoplasticity
A nonisothermal theory of viscoplasticity is formulated for a medium subjected to finite deformation. The basic system of equations consists of the laws of conservation of linear and angular...

Debonding of a Inhomogeneity from a Plastic Matrix
Inclusion debonding is addressed through the formulation and solution of the planar elastic and elastic uniform plastic problems. These problems are variants of the standard transformation...

On the Bifurcation of Elasto-Plastic Crystals During Multiple Slip
Conditions for the localization of deformation in elasto-plastic crystals experiencing multiple slip are discussed using multisurface plasticity theory. In particular, some important characteristics...

Distributed Failure Analysis, Fallacies and Remedies
In the past, two distinctly different approaches - smeared and discrete failure descriptions have been utilised to capture failure mechanisms in solids and structures. These two approaches...

Computational Gradient Plasticity
The inclusion of higher-order deformation gradients is of paramount importance for properly describing strain localization within the framework of continuum mechanics. In this contribution...

Failure Analysis of Masonry Structures
The use of smeared-crack and interface elements for the analysis of masonry structures is investigated. While a variety of structural problems can be solved with a combination of both...

An Elastoviscoplastic Model for High Strength Concrete
An elastoviscoplastic model of overstress type is proposed for high-strength concrete in this study. With its viscosity parameters determined with experimental data from the split-Hopkinson-pressure-bar...

Stability of Systems of Rigid Bodies by Bounding Theorems
The stability of systems of systems of rigid bodies subjected to conservative and dissipative forces is investigated by considering the minimization of a work function subject to the kinematic...

Predicting the Performance Limits of Soil-Culvert Systems
A finite element model for elastic plastic large deformation analysis of soil-culvert systems is presented. Predictions of this numerical model are in good agreement with failure tests...

Locally Buckled Plastic Hinge Behavior Under Monotonic and Cyclic Loading Condition
In order to clarify the influences of local buckling under monotonic and cyclic loading conditions, experimental studies were carried out on W8x10 A-36 structural steel members subjected...

Composite Materials for Structures on Planetary Surfaces
Development of structures for planetary surface environments depends upon the use of the most appropriate materials. Advanced composite materials are apparently the best candidates for...
