    Many researches have been conducted in past decades for promoting the application of steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC), either conventional or self-compacting. However, the differences of post-crack behaviour and the ...
  • Effect of cement composition on the reactivity of alkali-free accelerating admixtures for shotcrete 

    Salvador, Renan; Pialarissi Cavalaro, Sergio Henrique; Rueda Alba, Angel Julian; Domingues de Figueiredo, Antonio (2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The evolution of mechanical strength in cement matrices is strongly dependent on cement properties and on the admixtures used. Limestone additions and accelerators, used in shotcrete, alter the hydration mechanisms of the ...

    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The structural response of any structure is traditionally predicted by simplistic physics-based models. In these models the mechanical and geometrical properties are assumed as known. Nevertheless, this is not the case in ...
  • Simulation of the construction process of cable-stayed bridges from a direct approach 

    Lozano Galant, José Antonio; Ruiz Ripoll, Lidia; Xu, Dong; Payá Zaforteza, Ignacio Javier; Turmo Coderque, José (International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineers (IABSE), 2014)
    Conference report
