    This paper introduces several new damage states for shear walls with flexural behavior damaged in an earthquake. These damage states are deducted by carefully interpretation of reported available test results of shear walls ...
  • Experimental setup and numerical evaluation of the compression test on thin tiles for masonry timbrel vaults 

    Cabané Cañas, Albert; Saloustros, Savvas; Pelà, Luca; Roca Fabregat, Pedro (Elsevier, 2021-12)
    Article
    Open Access
    Compressive tests on clay tiles used in historical masonry timbrel vaults are hindered by the relatively small thickness of the specimens, resulting in buckling or confinement problems depending on the loading direction. ...
  • Influence of the degree of utilization on the structural behaviour of stainless steel frames subject to fire

    ASHVIN aims at the digitalization of the construction industry to increase productivity, resource efficiency, and safety. Towards this goal, digital twin technology is only one means to an end. Therefore, the core of all ...
  • Ladle furnace slag as a partial replacement of Portland cement 

    Araos Henríquez, Paulo Sebastián; Aponte Hernández, Diego Fernando; Ibáñez, Jordi; Barra Bizinotto, Marilda (Elsevier, 2021-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Ladle furnace slag (LFS) has been proposed as partial cement replacement due to its similar chemical composition with Portland cement. However, its mineralogical composition needs to be considered due to problems with ...
  • Inverse analysis of constitutive models applied to steel fiber reinforced Concrete 

    Santos, Leticia C. D.; Nogales Arroyo, Alejandro; Reginato, Luan; Pieralisi, Ricardo (Ibero-Latin-American Congress on Computational Methods in Engineering (CILAMCE), 2020)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) structures are increasingly being inserted in engineering, mainly due to the good properties of the material to the tensile stresses. To represent the behavior of these structures, ...
  • Sustainability-oriented multi-criteria analysis of different continuous flight auger piles
