Even today the durability of glass fibre reinforced concrete composites (GRC) remains a widely studied topic. The accelerated ageing technique and the strand-in-cement (SIC) test method were developed to study the durability of GRCs in the early days. Within this paper it is shown that the...
The ductilometer is currently being used by the asphalt pavement community for determination of elastic recovery of asphalt materials. Briquet specimens are pulled apart at 5 cm/min, held after a specified elongation, then severed at the center and allowed to recover undisturbed for 1 h with the...
A micromechanical finite element (FE) framework was developed to predict the viscoelastic properties (complex modulus and creep stiffness) of the asphalt mixtures. The two-dimensional (2D) microstructure of an asphalt mixture was obtained from the scanned image. In the mixture microstructure,...
One of the most common deterioration mechanisms in concrete structures is reinforcement corrosion caused by chlorides. An often used repair strategy is to remove the damaged concrete and sometimes also undamaged concrete and replace with a repair concrete. The chloride contaminated undamaged...
Durability is of great importance when considering sustainable energy systems. In turn it lays emphasis on assessing performance over time of energy systems and components. This paper presents a study on optical degradation of a building-integrated Unglazed Solar Collector (USC) surface, by...
Evaluating and enhancing construction material sustainability requires a life cycle perspective of the structures in which they are used, since material properties and durability can have a profound effect on overall infrastructure performance. A framework is proposed to evaluate and enhance the...
The dynamic shear rheometer (DSR) and the bending beam rheometer (BBR) were used to characterize the rheological properties of bitumen mixed with mineral filler that is smaller than 75 μm in size. The study focuses on using a rheology-based model to assess the effect of two distinctly different...
The strengthening of RC elements with CFRP is a technique that has been acquiring more and more potential. The bond between the CFRP reinforcement and the concrete support is usually made with epoxy adhesives. However, it is here that the integrity of the system can be affected, namely by...
In this paper, gas permeability of high performance concrete (HPC) with water-binder ratio (w/b) varying from 0.25 to 0.35 and level of fly ash (FA) replacement ranging from 0% to 60%, were determined. Pore structure of high performance concrete was also investigated with mercury intrusion...
Aim of this research was to evaluate the possible application of the AE technique to study the response of multiple leaf masonry repaired with different techniques. The results of shear tests carried out on three specimens repaired after failure are presented on an explorative basis; on two of...
