With the development of waste recovery techniques, previous research has revealed that coarse fractions of municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) bottom ash (BA) after proper treatment could be applied in the construction sector, while the fines are seldom recovered in practice and normally landfilled. This study explores the potential...

In the current study, experiments were carried out to investigate the structural performance of reinforced concrete (RC) beams with a self-healing cover zone. The cover zone consists of a 1.5-cm-thick layer of bacteria-embedded strain hardening cementitious composite (SHCC) for a combination of crack width control and crack healing. The aim is...

Concrete is characterized in terms of its engineering properties, mainly strength and stiffness, which are subsequently used in structural design. However, the apparent (i.e., measured) concrete properties are not intrinsic but dependent on the conditions under which the measurement is performed. Herein a combined experimental and numerical...

Although alkali activated concretes (AACs) are promising for reducing the carbon emissions of concrete, in order to enable their wide application it is vital to understand their long-term behaviour. Herein, we report the development of mechanical properties of a ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS)-based AAC and a binary fly ash (FA) ...

A promising solution for reducing the carbon footprint of concrete is the use of alkali-activated concretes (AAC). Before this material can be widely applied, its long-term behaviour needs to be understood, especially since some studies reported a decrease of mechanical properties over time. Similarly, Prinsse et al. reported decreasing...

In the current study, experiments were carried out to investigate the cracking behaviour of reinforced concrete beams consisting of 1-cm-thick layer of Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) in the concrete cover zone. The hybrid SHCC/concrete beams with different types of interfaces were tested and compared with control reinforced...

The number of hybrid concrete structures is increasing due to the need for repairing/strengthening existing structures and the development of new hybrid concrete systems. The structural response of these hybrid structures might be governed by the strength of the interface between the two concretes, making it essential to characterize the...

Ultra-high performance fiber-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) exhibits high compressive and tensile strength together with outstanding durability. Due to these superior properties, UHPFRC is promising for retrofitting existing reinforced concrete (RC) bridges. While research and on-site applications show the significant improvement of RC structures...

In the current study, experiments and numerical simulations were carried out to investigate the cracking behavior of reinforced concrete beams consisting of a very thin layer (i.e., 1 cm in thickness) of SHCC in the concrete cover, tension zone. A novel type of SHCC/concrete interface that features a weakened chemical adhesion but an enhanced...

To enhance the structural and seismic resistance, as well as durability of concrete structures, an ultra ductile fiber reinforced cementitious composites called Engineered Cementitious Composite (ECC), also known as Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC), was developed. ECC has a similar compressive and tensile strength to conventional...

Hybrid application of conventional concrete and Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) is recently shown to be promising for crack width control. In this paper, a combined experimental and numerical study is performed to validate the concept and to study the effect of interface treatment on crack width control. The interface is varied...

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...

Ultra-high performance fiber-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) has emerged as one of the promising materials for strengthening of concrete structures. For the strengthening application of UHPFRC, one of the primary concerns is to evaluate the degradation of bond behavior and structural re-sponse of strengthened elements under harsh environmental...

In Nederland wordt veel aandacht besteed aan geopolymeerbeton als een van de mogelijkheden om de CO₂-voetafdruk van beton te verlagen. Hoewel dit materiaal op laboratoriumschaal uitgebreid is onderzocht, zijn praktische toepassingen en ervaringen nog maar beperkt beschikbaar. Bovendien bestaan er voor een brede en grootschalige constructieve...

Application of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement in concrete beams may cause large deflection and crack width, as well as low shear capacity and ductility due to relatively small stiffness of FRP materials. To avoid these unfavorable factors and evaluate the shear behavior of FRP-reinforced structural members, a high-performance...

Strain hardening cementitious composite (SHCC) is a special class of ultra-ductile material which has autogenous self-healing capability due to its intrinsic tight crack widths. To further improve its healing ability, healing agent (HA) can be incorporated in SHCC, enabling it also the autonomous self-healing mechanism. In this study, the...
