    Conference report
    Open Access
    RC slabs can be subjected to transverse loads and in-plane tensile forces simultaneously, as it occurs in top slabs of continuous box girder bridges at intermediate supports, or in floor slabs supported on columns and ...
  • Mooring fatigue verification of the WindCrete for a 15 MW wind turbine 

    Trubat Casal, Pau; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Alarcón Fernández, Daniel; Arramounet, Valentin; Mahfouz, Mohammad Youssef (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2021)
    Conference report
