To foster resilience in teams operating in complex work domains, design should allow for a range of work strategies as appropriate to context. This paper describes how computational simulation and network visualization of a team’s work can identify feasible work strategies and assess their appropriateness for different contexts. Network...

The mechanical response of concrete is complex and as other composite materials, multiscale modelling has the potential for modeling its macroscopic behavior. This paper presents an upscaling methodology for the model-ling of the concrete mechanical properties. The suggested formulation starts from a known chemical and mechanical set of...

Exposing reinforced concrete (RC) structures to aggressive environmental conditions is one of the main reasons that may limit their service life. Diffusion of chloride ions through concrete cover is one of the most damaging environmental actions, since it may cause corrosion of steel reinforcement. Therefore, modelling this phenomenon allows...

We computed the base, instantaneous and mean flow around a micro-ramp immersed in an incompressible boundary layer. Results of our Direct
Numerical Simulations (DNS) are compared with an independent stability analysis and experiments. We analyse flow structures and mechanisms that contribute to the micro-ramp functionality and find that...

Chemical deformation is an important material property which influences the autogenous deformation of the materials. While geopolymer is emerging as an eco-friendly alternative to ordinary Portland cement (OPC), few studies have been conducted on the chemical deformation of this material. In this paper, the chemical deformation of a metakaolin ...

Bergen city in Norway is presently undergoing an enormous population growth. In this respect, Bergen municipality wanted to identify all the possibilities for densification in the current situation. Therefore, the following issues were evaluated: street network and public transport accessibility, building density, degree of functional...

Experiments are carried out to investigate the chloride diffusivity in partially saturated ordinary Portland cement mortars with water-to-cement (w/c) ratios of 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6. Based on resistivity measurement and Nernst-Einstein equation, the chloride diffusivities of cement mortars at various water saturations are estimated. The pore...

The coastal zone of Mekong delta is suffering under intense pressures from climate change as well as human intervention. Currently, the coastline evolution of Mekong delta is a complex combination of impacts due to (1) relative sea level rise i.e. the sum of eustatic sea level rise, natural and human induced subsidence (2) sediment transport...

In this paper, a new analytic model for predicting chloride diffusivity in unsaturated cementitious materials is developed based on conductivity theory and Nernst-Einstein equation. The model specifies that chloride diffusivity in unsaturated cementitious materials can be mathematically described as a function of chloride diffusivity in...

Microcracks play vital roles in the prediction of the service life of concrete structure. Because microcracks in concrete structure are the preferential ingression channels for aggressive ions, e.g., chloride, sulphate, etc. However, microcracks have potentials to self-heal autogenously due to the continuous hydration of unhydrated cement,...

The heterogeneity of the concrete may be considered on different size scales of observation, ranging from the atomistic scale (10-10m), characterized by the behavior of crystalline particles of hydrated Portland cement, to the macroscopic scale (101 m), where concrete has traditionally been considered homogeneous. The multiscale framework we are...

The transitional flow features over and downstream of isolated roughness elements in hypersonic flow are investigated by means of infrared thermography. The local heat flux distribution in the wake of the roughness element reveals the footprint of multiple streamwise counter-rotating vortex pairs. The formation of a turbulent wedge with the...

The transitional flow features past a micro-ramp are investigated in the incompressible flow regime at critical and supercritical roughness-height based Reynolds number (Reh). Tomographic PIV is adopted as the diagnostic technique to identify the instantaneous three-dimensional flow behaviour in the domain of 73 ramp height streamwise. The...

In engineering practise, interior relative humidity (RH) of concrete significantly affects the transport properties and thus the service life of concrete structures. In this paper, the development of RH due to self-desiccation in blended cement pastes was studied from 1 day to 1.5 years. The pore structure and non-evaporable water content at...

It is well recognized that the high risk of early age micro-crack of HPC/UHPC is attributed to the large magnitude of early age autogenous shrinkage caused by self-desiccation in binder hydration. Over the years, several methods have been proposed to mitigate autogenous shrinkage based on internal curing theory, and a better internal curing...

A newly developed thermodynamic approach was introduced from the literature to investigate the influence of NaOH content on the hydrate assemblage and chemistry of aqueous solution of activated slag paste (Na2O/slag=4%, 6% and 8%). The ICP-OES test was performed to obtain the aqueous species profiles such as Si, Ca, Al and Na etc. The elemental...

In 2006, China published the first National Evaluation Standard for Green Building (ESGB), which soon became the most widely spread evaluation system in the country. With the fast growth of urbanization, ESGB 2006 version no longer meets the current needs and requires an update. Based on the implementation outcomes of ESGB 2006 and expert...

Alkali-activated materials (AAM) have received increasing interest during the past few decades due to their environmental and technological advantages. However the durability of these binders is still considered as an unproven issue that needs to be addressed before their commercial adoption and large-scale production. The present work is...
