Aimed at realizing the effective strengthening and durable repair of concrete structures, particularly in emergencies like traffic interruption triggered by broken roads and damaged bridges, nine groups of specimens were designed and tested in this paper to develop the high-early-strength Engineered Cementitious Composites (HES-ECC) featured...

Electrodialysis (ED) is a membrane-based process in which ions are transported under the influence of an externally applied electrical potential. Ion-exchange membranes (IEMs) are key components in ED processes. There are two types of IEMs: (1) cation-exchange membranes (CEMs), which contain fixed, negatively charged groups, and (2) anion...

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...

We investigated in detail the permeation selectivity in the electro-dialysis of Na<sup>+</sup>, K<sup>+</sup>, Mg<sup>2+</sup> and Ca<sup>2+</sup> in both binary and quaternary mixtures using a supported liquid membrane (SLM). The SLM consisted of the organic liquid 2-nitrophenyl octyl ether (NPOE) containing a lipophilic anion, i.e. tetrakis...

High Na<sup>+</sup> levels are detrimental for most crops. Selective membranes provide the possibility for the selective removal of Na<sup>+</sup> while preserving beneficial ion species. The challenge is to separate two ion species of the same charge. This study evaluates the implementation of an electrodialysis (ED) system equipped with a...

This study demonstrates the effective separation of alkali metal cations using a Supported Liquid Membrane (SLM) containing lipophilic, negatively charged borate moieties, operating under electro dialysis conditions. The selectivity of the membrane is essentially based on differences in dehydration energy and mobility between ion species. The...

Selective ion removal has been a point of focus in capacitive deionization because of its industrial applications such as water purification, water softening, heavy metal separation and resource recovery. Conventionally, carbon is used as electrode material for selectivity. However, recent developments focus on intercalation materials such as...

A model is presented for the Na<sup>+</sup> and K<sup>+</sup> levels in the irrigation water of greenhouses, specifically those for the cultivation of tomato. The model, essentially based on mass balances, not only describes the accumulation of Na<sup>+</sup> but includes a membrane unit for the selective removal of Na<sup>+</sup> as well. As...

A modeling procedure to predict the residual fatigue life of rail at squats seeds is developed in this article. Two models are involved: a 3D explicit Finite Element (FE) model to compute the stress and strain at squats in rail, and the J-S fatigue damage model to determine the residual fatigue life on the basis of the computed stress and strain...

The rolling contact of elastic bodies (upper body and lower body) can be analyzed with the Hertz theory and the Kalker’s model. It is generally believed that the width of the contact area should be much smaller than the characteristic size of each elastic body, to ensure that the half-space assumption is valid. However the definition of “much...

The recovery behavior for strength and impermeability of cementitious composites embedded with organic microcapsules was investigated in this study. Mortar specimens were formed by mixing the organic microcapsules and a catalyst with cement and sand. The mechanical behaviors of flexural and compression strength were tested. The results showed...

A new type of self-healing cementitious composites by using organic microcapsules is designed in Guangdong Key Laboratory of Durability for Coastal Civil Engineering, Shenzhen University. For the organic microcapsules, the shell material is urea formoldehyde (UF), and the core healing agent is Epoxy. The effect of organic microcapsules on...

The fracture processes in concrete can be simulated by lattice fracture model [1]. A lattice network is usually constructed on top of the material structure of concrete, and then the mechanical properties of lattice elements are assigned, corresponding with the phases they represent. The material structure of concrete can be obtained...

Cracking in cement-based materials is usually not easy to predict, because of the complexity of their microstructures. Concrete is a composite material of mortar and coarse aggregates, and mortar consists of cement paste and sands. The fracture processes in these materials are related, and this paper aims to reveal the relationship by developing...

Concrete is a composite construction material, which is composed primarily of coarse aggregates, sands and cement paste. The fracture processes in concrete are complicated, because of the multiscale and multiphase nature of the material. In the past decades, comprehensive effort has been put to study the cracks evolution in concrete, both...
