    Segmental tunnel linings present a significant 3D response when they are subjected to localized loads or to other scenarios that produce different deformations of adjacent rings. The present paper analyzes the interaction ...
  • Correlation between the Barcelona test and the three-point bending test for the characterization of SCFRC 

    Galeote Moreno, Eduardo; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la; Blanco Álvarez, Ana (Universidade do Porto, 2015)
    Conference report

    Self-compacting concrete has proved itself to be a suitable solution in many scopes of construction industry. Its higher performance and better flowability has allowed considering its use in new applications. Nevertheless, ...
  • Monitoring of flexural and shear crack pattern in concrete structures by distributed optical fiber 

    Rodríguez, Gerardo; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Villalba Herrero, Sergi (International Society for Structural Health Monitoring of Intelligent Infrastructure (ISHMII), 2015)
    Conference report

    In the present paper, two methodologies to obtain flexural and shear crack pattern in concrete elements using distributed optical fiber are proposed. The first has been validated through experimental results of tests carried ...
  • Life-cycle system performance of bridges: a robustness-based approach 

    Cavaco, E. S.; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Neves, Luís A.C (University of British Columbia (UBC), 2015)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Corrosion in reinforced concrete and steel structures is among the most damaging phenomena to structural safety and therefore one of the most demanding when facing the life-cycle analysis of such structures. However, the ...
  • Robustness and health monitoring of existing bridges 

    Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (Associação Portuguesa para a Segurança e Conservação de Pontes (ASCP), 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The paper shows how the robustness concept, mainly developed and thought for the design of new structures, and the monitoring by suitable sensors based on fiber optics can also play a relevant role in the safety and ...

  • Seismic protection of cable-stayed bridges applying fluid viscous dampers 

    Valdebenito, Galo; Aparicio Bengoechea, Ángel Carlos (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2009)
    Book
    Open Access
    The present work constitutes an approach to the seismic protection of cable-stayed bridges including the incorporation of fluid viscous dampers as additional energy dissipation devices. The idea of the authors is to provide ...
  • Concrete with crumb rubber from used tyres 

    Royano García, Verónica; Barra Bizinotto, Marilda; Vázquez Ramonich, Enric (2014)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This study aims to determine the influence of the substitution of a variable volume of aggregates on a concrete by an equivalent quantity of crumb rubber (CR) obtained from used tyres. The physical and mechanical properties ...
  • Herramientas necesarias para la evaluación sísmica de edificios 

    Moreno González, Rosángel; Pujades Beneit, Lluís; Aparicio Bengoechea, Ángel Carlos; Barbat Barbat, Horia Alejandro (Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria (CIMNE), 2008)
    Book
    Open Access
    En esta monografía de presenta de forma resumida, los conceptos fundamentales relacionados con la acción sísmica, la respuesta estructural de los edificios, la evaluación de la vulnerabilidad, el riesgo y el daño sí­smico. ...
  • Effect of mix design on fresh self-consolidating concrete and inferences on formwork pressure 

    Ruiz Ripoll, Lidia; Shah, Surendra; Barragán, Bryan Erick; Turmo Coderque, José (2014-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The use of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) has become more prevalent due to its economic and technological advantages over other types of concrete. Nevertheless, issues relating to casting and placement hinder its ...
