Thermal Response in Antenna Under Laser Irradiation
This investigation focuses on the thermal response of two objects under medium-intensity continuous-wave (CW) laser irradiation: (1) a homogeneous slab and (2) a complex electronic component,...

Shock-tested R. C. Slabs: Significant Parameters
Shock-tube tests of plain concrete and reinforced concrete (R. C.) slabs were performed. The influence of free water in concrete pores, emphasized in previous tests at a material level,...

Impulsive Punching of Fiber-Reinforced Concrete Slabs
The behavior of FRC slabs reinforced with polymeric fibers (polyacrylonitrile fibers PAN) and subjected to impulsive punching is analyzed here in order to clarify to what extent the fibers...

Seismic Response Studies on a Two Span Slab-On-Girder Bridge
A new type of self-equilibrating snap-back (quick-release) test setup is employed to investigate the transverse dynamic response of a two-span continuous slab-on-girder highway bridge....

Use of Composite Timber-concrete Floors in Residential Buildings
Timber-concrete floors are widely used in the Gulf region for its resistance to hot and aggressive environment of the area. However, due to the fact that no shear connector is provided,...

Hydrodynamic Forces in Hydraulic Jump Stilling Basins
The knowledge of hydrodynamic forces acting on hydraulic jump stilling basin slabs has been a research topic for the past four decades. Published methodologies for computing the hydrodynamic...

Alternatives for Overtopping Protection of Dams
Prepared by the Task Committee on Overtopping Protection of the Hydraulics Division of ASCE. This report summarizes the results of an inventory and...

Waterproofing a Structural Slab at Ground Anchor Locations

Durability of Concrete Materials Under Pavement Joints

Rigid Pavement Evaluation with Seismic Pavement Analyzer

Continuity in Precast Prestressed Concrete Girder Bridges
An experimental study conducted to evaluate the behavior of pretensioned bridge members made continuous with a cast-in-place concrete slab and diaphragm is summarized. In this study, the...

Computer Model Pointing to Dynamic Instability of Lift Slab Structure

Orthotropic Rigidities of Curved Concrete Waffle Slabs
Analytical expressions are derived for predicting the flexural and torsional rigidities during the pre-cracking and post-cracking stages for horizontally- curved waffle slab structures....

Physical Testing of Two R/C Skewed Slab Bridges with Integral Wall Abutments
Two one-third scale models of an existing reinforced concrete skewed slab bridge with integral wall abutments were tested statically to failure. Typically, these bridges are designed using...

Linear and Nonlinear Finite Element Analyses of RC Skewed Slab Bridges with Integral Wall Abutments
The design of rigid-frame skewed slab bridges is complicated by higher shears and moments near the obtuse corner (see Fig.1). While the finite element method can be used to compute these...

Performance and Serviceability of Composite Floors
Concrete slabs on steel deck are the most common type of floor system in use today. This system of construction is particularly advantageous when ultimate strength design (LRFD) is used....

Site Load Testing of Full Scale Composite Concrete Floors
The paper presents the results of a load test carried out in 1982 on a continuous reinforced concrete slab with a permanent shuttering consisting of compressed straw (Stramit) or cement...

Instrumentation Considerations for Nondestructive and Destructive Testing of Reinforced Concrete Slab Bridges
This paper examines the process of selection and calibration for instruments used in nondestructive and destructive field tests of a reinforced concrete slab bridge. Of great importance...

Conversion of a Concrete Slab and Buttress Dam to a Gravity Dam
The 58-foot high, 425-foot long, Ambursen-type, concrete slab and buttress, Gorge Plant Dam, which has a 120-foot long overflow spillway near the center, was converted to a concrete gravity...

The Use of Yield-Line Theory in the Design of Steel-Fibre Reinforced Concrete Slabs
Using yield line calculations for steel fibre reinforced slabs a formula for the design strength of shotcrete linings is developed. The formula establishes a connection between the toughness...
