  • Towards the sustainability in the design of wind towers 

    Pons Valladares, Oriol; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la; Armengou, Jaume; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (2017-06-29)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Wind farms are both a renewable energy production alternative and a profitable economic enterprise. At the same time these groups of wind towers can be a social-friendly solution if they solve challenging demands from the ...
  • Evaluation of the shrinkage and creep of medium strength self compacting concrete 

    de la Cruz, C. J.; Ramos Schneider, Gonzalo; Hurtado, W. A. Hurtado (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2017)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The difference between self compacting concrete (SCC) and conventional concrete (CC) is in fresh state, is the high fluidity at first and the need for vibration at second, but in hardened state, both concretes must comply ...
  • A state of the art review of modal-based damage detection in bridges: development, challenges, and solutions 

    Moughty, John James; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2017-05)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Traditionally, damage identification techniques in bridges have focused on monitoring changes to modal-based Damage Sensitive Features (DSFs) due to their direct relationship with structural stiffness and their spatial ...
  • Luong test for the characterization of the shear post-cracking response of fiber reinforced concrete 

    Blanco Álvarez, Ana; Aire, Carlos; Pujadas Álvarez, Pablo; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique (2017-09)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The behavior of concrete subjected to shear can be significantly improved by the addition of fibers, which may partially or totally substitute the traditional steel stirrups (also known as links). Design recommendations ...
  • Analysis of measurement and simulation errors in structural system identification by observability techniques 

    Jun, LEI; Lozano Galant, Jose Antono; Nogal Macho, María; Xu, Dong; Turmo Coderque, José (2017-06)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    During the process of structural system identification, errors are unavoidable. This paper analyzes the effects of measurement and simulation errors in structural system identification based on observability techniques. ...
  • Reliability-based approach to the robustness of corroded reinforced concrete structures 

    Cavaco, E. S.; Neves, Luís A.C; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (2017-04)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Currently, decisions on the maintenance and repair of infrastructural assets, structures in particular, are mostly based on the results of inspections and the resulting condition index, neglecting system robustness and ...
  • Self-compacting concrete in the temple of Sagrada Familia 

    Rodríguez, Gemma; Blanco Álvarez, Ana; Pujadas Álvarez, Pablo; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (2017-09)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The Temple of Sagrada Familia presents singularities in terms of both the original design by architect Antoni Gaudí and the duration of the construction, which started more than 120 years ago. In fact, its design was ...
  • Bond behavior of self consolidating concrete 

    Santos, Ana C. P.; Aguado de Cea, Antonio; Villegas, Noe (2016-12)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The new generation of innovative projects has led to the use of greater amounts of reinforcement and the development of concrete with specific characteristics. It is necessary to use a material that ensures the uniformity ...
  • A review of sample preparation and its influence on pH determination in concrete samples 

    Manso Blanco, Sandra; Aguado de Cea, Antonio (Instituto Técnico de la Construcción y del Cemento, 2017-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    If we are to monitor the chemical processes in cementitious materials, then pH assays in the pore solutions of cement pastes, mortars, and concretes are of key importance. However, there is no standard method that regulates ...
  • Simplified probabilistic model for maximum traffic load from weigh-in-motion data 

    Soriano Chacón, Miriam; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Ghosn, Michel (2017-03)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper reviews the simplified procedure proposed by Ghosn and Sivakumar to model the maximum expected traffic load effect on highway bridges and illustrates the methodology using a set of Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) data ...
