    More than 65% of the total cost in buildings comes from Facility Maintenance Management (FFM). Despite that, facility managers have still relied on the traditional method. Building Information Modeling (BIM) based on Augment ...
  • Influence of the degree of utilization on the structural behaviour of stainless steel frames subject to fire 

    Segura Valdivieso, Guillermo; Pournaghshband, Asal; Afshan, Sheida; Mirambell Arrizabalaga, Enrique (2021)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Stainless steel is known to have a better behaviour at elevated temperatures than carbon steel. This, combined with its aesthetic appeal and corrosion resistance, makes stainless steel structures an attractive alternative ...
  • 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, ...
  • Interaction of geometric and material nonlinearities in stainless steel frames 

    González de León, Isabel; Arrayago Luquin, Itsaso; Real Saladrigas, Esther (2021)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Adequate mechanical properties make stainless steel an excellent construction material for structures. The current stainless steel European structural code EN1993-1-4 (2015) is largely based on provisions given for carbon ...
  • Preliminary study on new micro textile waste fiber reinforced cement composite 

    Sadrolodabaee, Payam; Claramunt Blanes, Josep; Ardanuy Raso, Mònica; Fuente Antequera, Albert de la (International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM), 2021)
    Conference report

    Large amounts of nonrenewable resources are depleted by the construction industry in addition to the generation of million tons of mineral waste and carbon dioxide gas every year. For the sake of a more sustainable consumption ...
  • Comparison of different low-cost sensors for structural health monitoring 

    Komarizadehasl, Seyedmilad; Turmo Coderque, José; Mobaraki, Behnam; Lozano Galant, José Antonio (CRC Press, 2020)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Recently, the need for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and inspection is growing as a result of the increasing age of the structural stock worldwide. SHM includes bringing into use a sensor or an array of sensors into ...
  • Embedded distributed optical fiber sensors for health monitoring of concrete bridges 

    Bado, Mattia Francesco; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Kaklauskas, Gintaris (CRC Press, 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The idea behind Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is the identification of early structural malfunctions, which, in the case of concrete bridges, is mainly shown as deformation and cracking and the consequent feedback on ...
  • Analysis using modal information in SSI by dynamic observability method 

    Peng, Tian; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Turmo Coderque, José (CRC Press, 2021)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) has become a powerful tool to help decision making for management of structures along their service life. Estimation of parameters from dynamic response is more appealing than doing it ...
