    In recent years, a considerable amount of research has been devoted to the under-standing of the structural performance of single isolated stainless steel members. Not withstanding, advances related to the analysis of more ...
  • Study on the influence of reduced beam sections on the seismic behaviour of a moment resisting frame 

    Jiménez Torres, Adrià; Mirambell Arrizabalaga, Enrique; Real Saladrigas, Esther (CRC Press, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents the results of a series of nonlinear time history analyses per-formed in Abaqus on a single-span two-storey moment resisting frame. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the base shear when the structure ...
  • Critical buckling load on transversally and longitudinally stiffened steel plate girders subjected to patch loading 

    Herrera, Juan Carlos; Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio (CRC Press, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    It has been investigated that the patch loading resistance model available in European design rules may lead to an underestimation for plate girders with closely spaced transverse stiffeners. Predicting models have been ...

    This paper presents the ongoing research related to the development of IoT platforms for the detection of damage in steel railway bridges. The development encompasses several fields from sensors, to damage detection, to ...
  • Influence of plastic recycled aggregates in the hardened properties of concretes 

    Hernández Mendiola, Ernesto; Etxeberria Larrañaga, Miren (2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The use of the new resource of man-made plastic aggregates as an alternative to natural aggregate could be a viable answer for developing new construction material. Not only would we eliminate a harmful waste but also ...
  • Characterization and modeling of the thermal and mechanical properties of self-compacting concrete at early ages 

    Crespo Garibay, María Delia; Molins i Borrell, Climent; Marí Bernat, Antonio Ricardo (International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Cracking of concrete at early ages, that may affect the structure durability and even its safety, can be simulated by means of models based on the concepts of degree of hydration and equivalent age, which require the ...
  • Preliminary study and tests arrangements for experimental programme on stainless steel frames 

    Arrayago Luquin, Itsaso; Real Saladrigas, Esther; Mirambell Arrizabalaga, Enrique (Independent Publishing Platform, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    In recent years, a considerable amount of research has been devoted to the understanding of the structural performance of single isolated stainless steel members. Notwithstanding, advances related to the analysis of more ...
  • Structural behaviourof dual eccentrically braced frames with welded dog-bone joints subjected to cyclic loading 

    Jiménez, Adrià; Mirambell Arrizabalaga, Enrique; Real Saladrigas, Esther (Independent Publishing Platform, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents the results of a series of simulations of welded dog-bone connections subjected to cyclic and monotonic loading. Reduced beam section (RBS) connections are a very easy to apply and economical solution, ...
  • Experimental programme on austenitic stainless steel beams and columns 

    Arrayago Luquin, Itsaso; Real Saladrigas, Esther; Chacón Flores, Rolando Antonio (Independent Publishing Platform, 2019)
    Conference report
