    The common failure mode of composite steel-concrete structural elements, such as composite columns, generally occurs due to the relative slipping or separation of the steel sheet and the concrete. This leads to materials ...
  • Thermal and mechanical properties laboratory evaluation of hollow brick made of Rred clay and rice husk additive 

    Díaz Fuentes, Carmen Xiomara; Sánchez Molina, Jorge; Zamora i Mestre, Joan-Lluís (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2020-12-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Hollow bricks in Rred clay for masonry are important in design and construction of buildings. Their thermal and mechanical properties must be considered because of the impact they have on energy consumption. The objective ...
  • Bond strength tests under pure shear and tension between masonry and sprayed mortar 

    Huang, Dawei; Pons Valladares, Oriol; Albareda Valls, Albert (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-05-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Sprayed mortar or shotcrete is a construction technology that could enhance existing masonry buildings’ resilience by reinforcing low-safety load-bearing walls. Many factors affect the resistance of shotcrete-reinforced ...

    Hollow bricks in fired clay for masonry are important in design and construction of buildings. Their thermal and mechanical properties must be considered because of the impact they have on energy consumption. The objective ...
  • A path to more versatile code provisions for slab deflection control 

    Sanabra Loewe, Marc; Capellà Llovera, Joaquim; Ramírez Anaya, Sandra; Pujadas Gispert, Ester (2021-01-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - author's decision
    An assessment of the methods of codes ACI-318 and Eurocode 2 is performed to establish a minimum slenderness for reinforced concrete slabs, which is a simplified method for controlling the deflection of slabs. This assessment ...
  • Analytical characterisation of axial shortening due to creep of reinforced concrete columns in tall buildings 

    Muñoz Blanc, Carlos; Obiol Sánchez, Agustí; Fortea Navarro, Inmaculada (Elsevier, 2021-02-01)
    Article

    This paper proposes a new methodology to analyse how creep affects to reinforced concrete columns of tall buildings with central core that range between 20 and 40 floors. Creep shortening is due to compression stresses and ...
  • Lightweight ventilated façade : acoustic performance in laboratory conditions, analysing the impact of controlled ventilation variations on airborne sound insulation 

    Zamora i Mestre, Joan-Lluís; Niampira Daza, Andrea (2020-12-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The use of double-sheet enclosures with an intermediate non-ventilated air cavity guarantees a higher airborne sound insulation. The insulation advantages depend on air tightness and the placement of sound absorbing material ...
  • Implementación del efecto de pandeo en el método simplificado del EC4-1-1 para secciones tubulares mixtas 

    Albareda Valls, Albert; Maristany Carreras, Jordi; Calderón Valdiviezo, Lucrecia Janneth; Muñoz Blanc, Carlos (2019-04-29)
    Article
    Open Access
    El Eurocódigo 4 sobre estructura mixta propone un método simplificado para diseñar secciones tubulares mixtas sometidas a estados combinadosde compresión y flexión, como alternativa al método analítico general. Este método ...
  • Real Cyclic Load-Bearing Test of a Ceramic-Reinforced Slab 

    Albareda Valls, Albert; Rivera Rogel, Carmen Alicia; Costales Calvo, Ignacio; Garcia Carrera, David (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2020-01-21)
    Article
    Open Access
    Ceramic-reinforced slabs were widely used in Spain during the second half of the 20th century, especially for industrial buildings. This solution was popular due to the lack of materials at that time, as it requires almost ...
  • Damage in face-brick facades placed between concrete slabs 

    Díaz Gómez, César; Cornadó Bardón, Còssima; Albareda Valls, Albert (Elsevier, 2020-02-27)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In recent decades, non-structural exposed brick facades have been widely used in Spain and other European and American countries. However, when they are partially supported by floor slabs, to give the image of a continuous ...
  • "La ballena vuelve al museo" : proceso de diseño y cálculo de una estructura ligera 

    Costales Calvo, Ignacio (Associació de Consultors d'Estructures, 2019-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    El texto describe el proceso de diseño y cálculo de una estructura metálica ligera que soporta otra estructura aún más ligera: el esqueleto de una ballena. Una pieza que ha sido conservada durante más de 150 años. Se ...
