Slag rim mainly consists of secondary precipitations such as C–S–H gel phase and hydrotalcite-like phase, which originate from the hydration of slag. In this paper, the micro-mechanical properties of slag rim were characterized by nanoindentation in combination with SEM. It was found that, compared to the C–S–H gel phase, slag rim showed about a...

This study aims to provide an efficient alternative for predicting creep modulus of cement paste based on Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN). First, a microscale lattice model for short-term creep is adopted to build a database that contains 18,920 samples. Then, 3 DCNNs with different consecutive convolutional layers are built to learn...

Stress evolution of restrained concrete is a significant direct index in early-age cracking (EAC) analysis of concrete. This study presents experiments and numerical modelling of the early-age stress evolution of Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) concrete, considering the development of autogenous deformation and creep. Temperature...

This study aims to provide an efficient and accurate machine learning (ML) approach for predicting the creep behavior of concrete. Three ensemble machine learning (EML) models are selected in this study: Random Forest (RF), Extreme Gradient Boosting Machine (XGBoost) and Light Gradient Boosting Machine (LGBM). Firstly, the creep data in...

Early-age stress (EAS) is an important index for evaluating the early-age cracking risk of concrete. This paper encompasses a thermo-chemo-mechanical (TCM) model and active ensemble learning (AEL) for predicting the EAS evolution. The TCM model provides the data for the AEL model. First, based on Fourier's law, Arrhenius’ equation, and rate...

This paper explores buildability quantification of randomly meshed 3D printed concrete objects by considering structural failure by elastic buckling. The newly proposed model considers the most relevant printing parameters, including time-dependent material behaviors, printing velocity, localized damage and influence of sequential printing...

This study investigates the deformation of free and stress of restrained alkali-activated slag concrete (AASC), respectively, under semi-adiabatic condition. The concrete shows first thermal expansion, which is compensated soon by autogenous shrinkage. The subsequent cooling down of the concrete aggravates shrinkage and development of tensile...

The study aims to investigate the mechanism of early-age cracks in different massive concrete structures (i.e. tunnels, bridge foundations and underground parking garages), with the objective of answering the following three specific questions: <br/><br/>1) How does the parameters of concrete proportion mix (e.g. w/c ratio, cementitious...

In this study, the flexural strength and fatigue properties of interfacial transition zone (ITZ) were experimentally investigated at the micrometre length scale. The hardened cement paste cantilevers (150 × 150 × 750 μm<sup>3</sup>) attached to a quartzite aggregate surface were prepared and tested under the monotonic and cyclic load using a...

This research studies the impact of localized damage and deformed printing geometry on the structural failure of plastic collapse for 3D concrete printing (3DCP) using the lattice model. Two different approaches are utilized for buildability quantification: the (previously developed) load-unload method, which updates and relaxes the printing...

This paper reports the carbonation characteristics of a cement-slag system exposed to accelerated carbonation testing, and its improved carbonation resistance with the increasing MgO content in blast furnace slag, in which hydrotalcite-like phase plays a key role. Our research showed that the hydrotalcite-like phase started to carbonate upon...

In this study, a numerical model using a 2D lattice network is developed to investigate the fatigue behaviour of cement paste at the microscale. Images of 2D microstructures of cement pastes obtained from XCT tests are used as inputs and mapped to the lattice model. Different local mechanical and fatigue properties are assigned to different...
