Oat husk ashes as supplementary cementitious material
(Technological University of the Shannon Midlands Midwest, 2022)
Supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) are recognized and utilized to minimize cement use; however, several waste sources now employed for partial cement replacement are under threat for changes in industrial production ...
Preliminary characterisation of natural fibres for enhancement of concrete
(Athlone Institute of Technology, 2018-04-24)
Reinforced concrete with steel is one of the most used construction materials in the world. The addition of short bio-based fibres into the concrete mixture for the production of elements lightly loaded can avoid concrete ...
Transient response simulation of a composite material footbridge to crossing pedestrians.
(CRC Press, 2003)
Loads applied by pedestrians, and crowds of pedestrians, are particularly important for footbridges with natural frequencies close to footfall frequencies of moving pedestrians. Recorded response data from Aberfeldy Bridge, ...
Suitability of selected natural fibres for concrete performance improvement.
The addition of fibres to reinforce concrete (FRC) is required when concrete structures may be submitted to other types of stresses beyond the compressive. Post-crack tensile strength, resistance to abrasion and additional ...
