    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Steel-concrete composite structures are well established in the construction of floors and roofing, being interesting solutions as steel decks act as formwork for relatively large spans and support the weight of the concrete ...
  • On the static strength of aluminium and carbon fibre aircraft lap joint repairs

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The behaviour of various aircraft lap joint repair configurations is investigated experimentally and numerically under static loading. The lap joints consist of aluminium alloy (AA) 2024-T3 substrates repaired with twin ...
  • An experimental investigation of a new perfect bond technology for composite slabs 

    Ferrer Ballester, Miquel; Marimón Carvajal, Federico; Casafont Ribera, Miguel (2018-03-30)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Steel-concrete composite slabs generally fail due to the debonding with separation of sections caused by longitudinal shear forces, regardless of the shape of the sheeting profile or the design of the embossments. This ...
  • Optimisation procedure for additive manufacturing processes based on mask image projection to improve Z accuracy and resolution 

    Bonada Bo, Jordi; Muguruza Blanco, Asier; Fernández Francos, Xavier; Ramis Juan, Xavier (Elsevier Ltd, 2018-01-04)
    Article
