Big energy savings with new polymer

INEOS Styrolutior has announced the first results of the PolySLS project, which is focused on developing a new energy saving styrenics based material for additive manufacturing. The project has been able to show that significant overall energy savings of up to 67% have been achieved when taking the entire life cycle of a new styrenics…

ASCE 41 Seismic Assessment of FRP-Repaired Concrete Columns | Journal of Composites for Construction

Abstract Current standards establish methods for seismic assessment and objectives for retrofit of existing building structures and provide guidance for fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP)-based seismic retrofit measures for existing reinforced concrete (RC) structures. However, there is no agreed-upon methodology for assessing—and therefore establishing—the efficacy of an FRP retrofit. Similarly, as FRP retrofits are becoming common, there…

Evaluation of Factors Affecting Erodibility Improvement for MICP-Treated Beach Sand | Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering

Abstract Microbially induced calcite precipitation (MICP) was used to treat several sandboxes filled with naturally occurring beach sand collected from Atlantic Beach, Florida. A surface-spray/percolation technique was used to treat these sandboxes where a relatively high-concentration bacteria solution and high-concentration calcium chloride/urea solutions were applied directly to the boxes’ surfaces. Several different treatment combinations were…

Modeling the Influence of Changes in Silica Fume on Concrete Performance | Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering

Abstract An analytical model was developed to describe the influence of silica fume on the mechanical behavior of ultra-high-performance concrete. The model defines a single parameter, tpaste , which estimates the thickness of paste surrounding all inert, unhydrated cement, and unreacted silica fume particles. The model considers adjustments for partially hydrated cement and partially reacted…
