Experimental and Numerical Analysis of a Field Trial Application of Microbially Induced Calcite Precipitation for Ground Stabilization | Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering

Abstract A field trial evaluated the potential of microbially induced calcite precipitation (MICP) through urea hydrolysis for ground stabilization. A bioaugmentation approach was employed in which locally enriched bacteria were injected, followed by an amendment solution containing urea and calcium chloride. Results from cone penetration tests and soil analysis were inconclusive about the obtained ground…

Evolution of Dynamic Properties of Cross-Anisotropic Sand Subjected to Stress Anisotropy | Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering

Abstract Understanding the evolution of dynamic properties of sand subjected to induced anisotropy is indispensable for an accurate seismic analysis of geostructures. In this study, several bender element and hollow cylinder experiments along various anisotropic stress paths are performed on two types of sands to evaluate the soil dynamic properties over a wide range of…

Multilayer versus Monolayer Externally Bonded CFRP Sheets for Shear Strengthening of Concrete T-Beams | Journal of Composites for Construction

Abstract The use of externally bonded (EB) carbon fiber–reinforced polymer (CFRP) fabrics for strengthening existing structures has received worldwide acceptance since the late 1990s. The composites produced at the time were of low density and have established the experimental database used by codes and guidelines to develop their analytical design models. As for projects requiring…

Shear Behavior of Post-Tensioned Concrete Beams with Draped FRP Tendons and without Transverse Reinforcement | Journal of Composites for Construction

Abstract To investigate the shear behavior of post-tensioned concrete beams with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcements, six large-scale post-tensioned beams without transverse reinforcement and with a shear span-to-effective depth ratio of approximately 3.0 were tested to failure. All beams were longitudinally reinforced with draped prestressed carbon FRP tendons and non-prestressed glass FRP bars. The test variables…
