The current structural demands include complex designs, efficient utilization of material resources, and maintenance of existing structures and infrastructure. In all these cases, the connections between structural components are the main focus of design since they are widely considered the weakest link in a structural system. The demand for...

Nowadays, with the rapid development of 3D printing technology, more and more applications of this technology can be seen in daily life, and architecture is one of the important directions. There are already a lot of creative buildings completed by 3D printing in the world, and many of them have already been put into use. One of the big...

The Netherlands is currently facing a significant challenge regarding its highway system due to the rise in traffic, especially in densely populated areas like The Randstad. However, constructing new infrastructure or replacing old bridges is not a practical solution due to environmental concerns. Most of the country's prestressed concrete...

Cracks that develop in concrete due to tensile stresses can lead to the corrosion of embedded reinforcing steel, which is a primary cause of concrete deterioration. It's common practice to introduce additional reinforcement to limit crack width in concrete. Another potential solution involves partially substituting concrete with alternative...

Concrete is widely used in civil engineering and despite its long history, accurate prediction of the hardening process, particularly in partially restrained conditions, remains a challenge. During the hardening of partially restrained concrete, residual stresses occur due to restrained deformations caused by factors such as heating/cooling and...

Strain hardening cementitious composites (SHCC) can be used to reduce the amount of reinforcement needed to control crack widths. SHCC has a strain hardening behaviour with dense micro-cracking, which makes it more ductile compared to conventional concrete. Conventional concrete can be used in the non-critical locations. An interface is formed...

Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) is an innovative type of fibre-reinforced cement-based composite that has superior tensile properties. Because of this, it holds the potential to enhance the shear capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) beams, if applied properly.<br/><br/>Experimental research was thus carried out with the purpose of...

Concrete elements, partially or entirely prefabricated are becoming more and more popular in engineering practice. The biggest challenge in this process is the realization of connections between components. These connections fall within two categories: Precast-to-precast connections with hardened parts and<br/>precast-to-in situ connections,...

Research about alkali-activated materials or geopolymers has increased in the past decade as they are regarded as a potential replacement to cement-based materials. This is due to the fact that alkali-activated materials possess several advantages over cement-based materials, and the most important one is that they are more sustainable to the...

Limiting maximum crack widths is a serviceability limit state, which ensures the durability of reinforced structures. In current practice, maximum crack widths are limited by using additional reinforcement, on top of the amount of reinforcement required for the designed ultimate bearing capacity. Reducing the amount of reinforcing steel used,...

The soil-grout interface friction was measured to be in between 0.0 [kPa] and 14 [kPa]. To measure this friction, a special research method was invented that enabled a tunnel to be recreated. With this setup, any formation could be used. The formation could be created with a hole in the middle which simulated a borehole. Next, by filling and...

Combining the high strength of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) and the strain capacity of Strain Hardening Cementitious Composites (SHCC), Strain Hardening Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete (SH­UHPFRC) could be a promising material for the application of strengthening RC elements. This research describes the development of...

Injection Bolted Connections (IBC) are connections in which the cavity between the bolts and the plates (hole clearance) is filled with two-component epoxy resin. The oversized hole clearances allow for the reuse of all the structural elements in composite structures. Due to larger hole clearance, the possibility of slip occurrence in the...

Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials across the world. Although, the traditional construction techniques are being improved for efficiency, cost and material optimization, there are disadvantages as well, such as the use of formwork, highly labourintensive and limited architectural freedom for design and material...

Energetic materials have widespread applicability in various fields of engineering as propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) is investigating additive manufacturing of solid propellants. As part of this investigation, TNO developed a new polymer binder mix for solid...

Hybrid concrete-SHCC beams are a new development in construction techniques. SHCC stands for Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite. In such beams, the tension zone could for example consist, next to the traditional reinforcement, of a material that shows strain hardening behaviour. That helps with controlling the crack width. In traditional ...

With rapid industrialisation, the infrastructure sector has seen exponential growth in prefabricated concrete elements due to their speedy construction and efficient usage of material. Precast concrete elements have thus observed some deterioration due to increased internal temperature as a result of rapid curing, and also through deliberate...

Concrete is one of the most widely applied construction materials worldwide. Although traditional construction processes are optimized in terms of efficiency, costs and material use, the main disadvantages are still related to the use of formwork, labour and limited freedom of shapes in architectural design. The future of concrete structures...

The performance of concrete is usually governed by its "strength" and "stiffness" properties. As most of the concrete structures are usually designed to last in service for a period of about half a century, it is important to understand the development of these "strength" and "stiffness" properties over the course of time. Based on the standard...
