Given the rising popularity of foam concrete (FC) for both structural and insulating purposes, evaluating the feasibility of recycling after its lifespan is crucial in the context of the growing emphasis on sustainable building practices. One approach to recycling FC incorporating microencapsulated phase change material (MPCM) involves...

This study investigates the structural behaviour and self-healing performance of hybrid reinforced concrete (RC) beams, enhanced with a 1.5-cm-thick self-healing cover composed of bacteria-embedded strain hardening cementitious composite (SHCC), for its potential in crack width control and crack healing. The research focuses on the...

Given the ongoing global urbanization and the rise of heat, flooding, and drought in cities, the integration of climate adaptive measures based on “ecosystem functions and services” becomes imperative in design. This study details the implementation process of a microclimate design model in the design and retrofitting of the housing project...

In fractured geological formations, as a result of the in-situ stress changes, fractures can propagate or slide. This phenomenon can be efficiently modeled by the extended finite element method (XFEM) when there are only a few fractures present. However, geological reservoirs contain many fractures which can also cross and are densely...

Implementing nature in cities has great potential to improve urban liveability by providing ecosystem services, which can help mitigate heat stress, improve air quality, attenuate noise, and reduce rainwater run-off. However, widespread adoption of urban nature and green building typologies is still limited due to their costs, environmental...

The circular economy (CE) has been established as one of the leading strategies to achieve a more sustainable system leading to national and global goals. One of the models coupled with CE is Product-Service Systems (PSS), with service integrated into products to various degree. PSS implementation in the infrastructure sector has been studied...

Corrosion in reinforced concrete is an important feature which can lead to increased deformation and cracking, as well as to premature failure. In the present work, macro-mechanical modelling of corrosion is performed, namely the degradation of bond–slip between concrete and steel. A mixed-mode damage model is adopted, in which the...

In quasi-brittle materials, such as reinforced concrete, localisation of initially diffuse cracking evolving in localised cracking patterns consists of a numerically challenging task. With conventional iterative methods, convergence of the numerical solution scheme to model crack localisation is often difficult to obtain. On the other hand,...

Cast glass has great application potential in the architectural realm, yet, despite its possibilities and attractiveness, designers, engineers and developers are, from an early design stage, hesitant to employ it; the limited available and craft-based manufacturing facilities, the questionable quality of the product, the missing engineering data...

Altering the state of the stress of the subsurface reservoirs can lead fractures to slip and extend their lengths (i.e., to propagate). This process can even be engineered, in many applications, e.g., enhanced geothermal systems. As such, accurate and efficient simulation of the mechanical deformation of the subsurface geological reservoirs,...

Accurate assessment of the overall mechanical behavior of masonry, composed of bricks and mortar joints, remains challenging due to its inhomogeneous and orthotropic nature. In this study, the feasibility of various mean-field homogenization schemes for the three-dimensional orthotropic elastic properties of masonry is comprehensively...

Structural components in corrosive environments such as pipelines, bridges, aircrafts, and turbines are imposed to stress corrosion. A stress corrosion model for pit growth should a) accurately consider the electrochemistry of the corrosion process, b) properly deal with the moving interface between solid and electrolyte, and c) effectively...

Corrosion is a phenomenon observed in structural components in corrosive environments such as pipelines, bridges, aircrafts, turbines, etc. The computational model of corrosion should enjoy two features: a) accurately considering the electrochemistry of corrosion and b) properly dealing with the moving interface between solid and electrolyte....

Since the 1980s, calcium silicate element masonry has been commonly used in Dutch buildings, and vertical continuous joints have been usually located at the corner of perpendicular walls. Since the shear failure of these joints may significantly reduce the seismic performance of the flanged wall and therefore of the entire building, the...

Adobe is a traditional masonry made of sundried earthen bricks and mud mortar. Despite a millennial history of buildings of architectural value, adobe still connotes a so called ‘not engineered’ construction type. Namely, the material and structural properties of adobe are still not entirely addressed, resulting in an equally uncertain...

Lattice models have been used to simulate mass transport to predict durability of cementitious materials. In particular, the use of dual lattice meshes allows for the coupling of fracture and transport processes, which commonly occur at the same time in these materials. Literature has shown good agreement between simulations and experimental...

The main objective in construction projects is to meet the expectations regarding the quality and safety, to ensure stakeholder satisfaction, and to complete the projects at the scheduled time, in the prescribed budget and within the pre-determined scope. This objective can only be achieved by completing numerous interrelated activities through...

The mode-I dynamic fracture energy and failure mechanisms of glass fiber-reinforced polymer composites are investigated with an embedded cell model of the single-edge-notched-tension (SENT) geometry. Under an applied dynamic loading, a crack may propagate in the embedded microstructure, accompanied by the development of a fracture process...

Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) have been widely used during the past decades as biocompatible bone substitution in maxillofacial, oral and orthopedic surgery. CPCs are injectable and are chemically resemblant to the mineral phase of native bone. Nevertheless, their low fracture toughness and high brittleness reduce their clinical...

A numerical model for corrosion pit propagation under mechanical loading is presented. The level set method is used for corrosion front tracking and also enables the domain to be split into a solid and a pit domain. In the pit the diffusion of atoms originating from the dissolution process occurring at the pit front is simulated. The model is...
