Reinforced concrete one-way slabs under concentrated loads can develop different shear failure mechanisms: as wide beams in one-way shear, punching shear around the load or a mixed mode between them. Until now, most publications presented recommendations to assess the shear capacity considering only the one-way shear failure mechanism. This...

This study describes a set of recommendations to improve the precision of shear and punching shear capacity predictions for one-way slabs under concentrated loads, regardless of the governing failure mechanism, using the ABNT NBR 6118:2014 code provisions. For this purpose, a database of 143 test results was developed, including one-way slabs...

Due to the aging of infrastructure, methods are explored by which the reliability of existing bridges and viaducts can be assessed. In case limited information of the structure is available or its condition is of concern, proof load testing may be used to demonstrate sufficient load-carrying capacity. Proof load tests in the USA are typically...

One-way slabs under concentrated loads may fail by one-way shear such as wide beams, punching shear, flexure, or by combining two or more of these mechanisms. Nevertheless, most publications have only addressed shear and punching failures without flexural reinforcement yielding. This study investigates the ultimate shear capacity of one-way...

One-way slabs under concentrated loads may fail by one-way shear, punching, flexure or a mixed-mode between them. This study examines the benefits of using Linear Elastic Finite Element Analyses (LEFEA) combined with analytical expressions to predict the shear and punching capacities of such slabs. Besides, the determination of the most...

In design, the sectional depth of reinforced concrete spread footings is usually governed by design code provisions for punching shear, which are derived primarily from experiments on slab-column connections. Previous experiments have shown that the punching behavior of concentrically loaded spread footings differs from that of slab-column...

Several studies investigated the precision of non-linear finite element analyses (NLFEA) to predict the shear capacity of beams or the punching capacity of slab-column connections. However, in the literature, there is little discussion regarding the results of NLFEA to predict the ultimate capacity and failure mechanism of slabs susceptible...

As the existing bridge stock is aging, the task of assessing these bridges becomes increasingly important. One of the assessment methods for existing bridges is load testing. Improvements in the field of diagnostic load testing are related to the use of numerical models. Improvements in the field of proof load testing focus on the safety of...

One of the barriers to implementation of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) into structural applications is the lack of understanding of the shear behaviour of SFRC members. This paper proposes a theoretical model for the shear capacity of SFRC members with mild steel reinforcement based on the shear-carrying mechanisms and sectional...

One-way slabs under concentrated loads may fail by one-way shear, two-way shear, flexure, or a combination of these modes. This paper reviews shear and punching shear-failure mechanisms of one-way slabs under concentrated loads tested from the literature and investigates the accuracy of different approaches to predict the ultimate capacity...

Because of the aging of infrastructure, methods are explored by which the reliability of existing bridges and viaducts can be assessed. In cases in which limited information of the structure is available or its condition is of concern, proof load testing may be used to demonstrate sufficient live load carrying capacity. Proof load tests in...

In the evaluation of existing bridges and viaducts, relying solely on a desk study is often inadequate for determining their structural reliability. Performing a proof load test provides valuable field data that offers detailed information about the structural integrity. However, the relation between the magnitude of the load and the...

The doctoral defense is an important step towards obtaining the doctoral degree, and preparation is necessary. In this work, I explore the relation between the way in which a doctoral candidate prepares for the defense and two important aspects of the defense: the outcome of the defense, and the student perception during and after the defense. I...

The increasing demand for sustainable development in engineering practice has triggered researchers to explore solutions to reduce the CO2 footprint caused by ordinary Portland cement (OPC) production. Alkali-activated concrete (AAC), made of by-products using alkali activation, is of great potential as a promising alternative to conventional...

In this study, a prestressed concrete girder bridge without plans and with severe levels of deterioration, located in Cali, Colombia, was load-tested to quantify, experimentally, its live-load behavior. The bridge consists of seven prestressed I-girders covered with a reinforced concrete deck, and four diaphragm beams. A geometric survey was...

Progressive deterioration is a problem that affects road infrastructure, especially bridges. This requires the development of methods to determine its influence on structural behavior, one of them being load testing. Within load testing, finite element analysis (FEA) models are used as part of the preparation process. This study focused on the...

Om de vele bestaande betonnen bruggen – die de komende tijd het einde van hun beoogde levensduur bereiken – te beoordelen, is het belangrijk een aanpak met verschillende niveaus van beoordelen te gebruiken. Waar een handberekening niet volstaat, kunnen geavanceerde modellen, meetgegevens, belastingproeven, monitoren, inzichten van...

One of the methods for the assessment of existing bridges is to subject the bridge to a load test. What is still lacking is a reflection of these recent advances in the codes and guidelines used for load testing of bridges. Two approaches are being used to address this lack. The first approach attempts to answer fundamental questions with regard...

In the assessment of existing infrastructure performing only a desk study is often not sufficient to determine the structural reliability of a bridge or viaduct. For concrete structures gathering field data by performing a proof load test offers detailed information about the structural performance. However, the relation between the magnitude...

The doctoral defence is the oral examination of the doctoral thesis. While it is a major milestone for doctoral candidates, this event is often shrouded in mystery. In this article, I explore the doctoral defence from an international perspective. I have studied the format of the defence based on written testimonies as well as the literature...
