Currently concrete is one of the most used building materials in the world. Despite its ability to withstand compressive loads, concrete has a low tensile strength, making it prone to cracking when pulled apart. Therefore, reinforcement is required to withstand the tensile stresses. This is generally achieved by applying steel rebars into the...

Conventional construction techniques are unsustainable and expensive due to longer construction time, labour-intensive work, and the use of formwork. 3D concrete printing is seen as a potential substitute to overcome these issues. However, extrusion-based 3D printed structures exhibit a weak interlayer bond, and researchers have tried to address...

In the near future, pressure on sustainability requirements in building structures will increase further as governments around the world are forced to tackle climate change issues. The construction industry is one of the most resource intensive and wasteful sectors in the world and is estimated to keep growing at a fast pace due to growing...

Concrete compressive strength is the most frequently used and most important mechanical propertyof concrete. National and international building codes (such as the Eurocode) frequently use the com­pressive strength for design with concrete.<br/><br/>In some cases, instead of testing the concrete specimens under compressive loading in...

This research focuses on developing architected lightweight cementitious cellular composites (LCCCs) for potential thermal insulation purposes. Specifically, Voronoi cellular structures with different randomness are adopted and used as cellular structure of the LCCCs. the mechanical properties of the developed LCCCs are investigated by...

In this study, a three-scale characterization of eight 20-years-old reinforced concrete specimens naturally deteriorated due to chloride-induced corrosion was carried out. The main aim of this research was to investigate some relevant parameters to accurately model corrosion of reinforced concrete structures, such as which are the locations...

Existing structures are built according to the valid codes at that time and reaching their design life time. The traffic loads and traffic intensity has also increased. In addition, the existing reinforced concrete structures are exposed to degradation mechanisms, like chlorides and carbonation during their lifetime. Existing concrete road...
