Teaching Students How to Evaluate the Reasonableness of Structural Analysis Results | Journal of Civil Engineering Education

Abstract Junior engineers are increasingly placing blind trust in computer generated structural analysis results, but the evaluation skills used by experienced engineers must have been learned at some point. Therefore, this study investigated whether evaluation skills in the categories of fundamental principles, features of the solution, and approximations could be effectively taught at the undergraduate…

Cyclic Compressive Behavior of Hybrid FRP-Confined Concrete | Journal of Composites for Construction

Abstract The aim of this study is to define the cyclic axial behavior of hybrid FRP (fiber reinforced polymer)-confined concrete based on the results of an experimental study presented here. Two different types of fiber sheets with different ultimate tensile strain capacities were used together in a suitable epoxy resin matrix to confine concrete. The…

Pull-Out and Shear Tests of Long Glass FRP Connector for Sandwich-Insulation Wall Panels | Journal of Composites for Construction

Abstract Sandwich insulation wall panels (SIWPs) are used extensively as thermal resistance components in buildings. Connectors in SIWPs are subjected to axial and shear forces to resist the load of the outer layer and transfer it to the inner layer and structure. In some areas, the insulation thickness needs to increase to achieve a satisfactory…

Stability Analysis and Control Measures of a Sanitary Landfill with High Leachate Level | Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering

Abstract A sanitary landfill with significant sliding indications was studied through field investigations and numerical analyses. A translational deformation mode was discovered, and the leachate level of the landfill reached approximately 0.8 times the height of the waste body, which was extremely adverse for stability. Subsequent analyses revealed that the sliding surface started from the…

Cyclic Performance of Square RC Bridge Columns Confined with Combined Steel and BFRP Ties | Journal of Composites for Construction

Abstract This paper proposes a confining combination of steel and innovative rectangular basalt fiber-reinforced polymer (BFRP) ties at the plastic hinge region on the seismic response of square reinforced concrete (RC) bridge columns. Six concrete specimens were constructed to test the bend parts’ strength for comparison to the tested straight parts’ strength. Seven square columns…
