Development of a Mechanical Wedge–Barrel Anchor for CFRP Rods: Static and Fatigue Behaviors | Journal of Composites for Construction

Abstract In this study, a mechanical anchorage for prestressed carbon fiber–reinforced polymer (CFRP) rods was proposed. The proposed anchorage consisted of a steel barrel with a conical hole and three separate aluminum wedges that are in direct contact with the CFRP rod. The anchorage system relied only upon friction, without any adhesives required. The static…

Differences between Professionals and Students in Their Visual Attention on Multiple Representation Types While Solving an Open-Ended Engineering Design Problem | Journal of Civil Engineering Education

Abstract Students and professionals from a variety of domains have demonstrated different approaches to problem solving. These two populations have displayed differences when using and perceiving multiple representations of problem-solving tools. In the domain of transportation engineering, this difference has yet to be evaluated in detail. This study addresses that knowledge gap. We used a…

Countdown to BEEAs week

The British Engineering Excellence Awards celebrate the best of design engineering in the UK from 2019-2020. Clearly, this has been an unusual time and this ceremony reflects that. However, we have been determined all along to ensure that excellence was recognised regardless. Rather than the much-missed physical ceremony, the Awards this year will be hosted…

Effective Stress Analysis of Liquefiable Sites to Estimate the Severity of Sediment Ejecta | Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering

Abstract The severity of liquefaction-induced ejecta manifestation for the 2010–2011 Canterbury earthquakes was overestimated or underestimated using simplified liquefaction ground-failure indices at several sites in Christchurch. Nonlinear effective stress analyses of two representative level ground sites are performed to investigate the causes of these misestimations. One site has a thick, clean sand deposit, and the…
