To align with the objective of the European Green Deal [46] policy of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, the construction sector must transition to a circular built environment. Most of the waste in the Netherlands is related to construction and demolition waste, with the industry accounting for approximately 35% of CO<sub>2<...

This research aims to improve the structural safety of wide floor slabs with openings due to embedded non-structural elements. The multidisciplinary design of these slabs has resulted in various safety issues, including errors in the design due to the absence of a calculation method and insufficient integration between designs of different...

The climate emergency calls for a global shift towards a low-carbon economy, to preserve natural resources and biodiversity, while limiting global warming and its consequences. This project focuses on the impact of distribution centres, intended for the storage of commercial goods. Warehouses are characterised by large flexible spaces and simple...

Reinforced concrete one-way slabs under concentrated loads can develop different shear failure mechanisms: as wide beams in one-way shear, punching shear around the load or a mixed mode between them. Until now, most publications presented recommendations to assess the shear capacity considering only the one-way shear failure mechanism. This...

This study describes a set of recommendations to improve the precision of shear and punching shear capacity predictions for one-way slabs under concentrated loads, regardless of the governing failure mechanism, using the ABNT NBR 6118:2014 code provisions. For this purpose, a database of 143 test results was developed, including one-way slabs...

This comprehensive study addresses the persistent issue of railway transition zone degradation, evaluating the efficacy of the most commonly used mitigation measures and proposing a novel Safe Hull-Inspired Energy Limiting Design (SHIELD) of a transition structure. Firstly, this work assesses the traditional transition structures, including...

One-way slabs under concentrated loads may fail by one-way shear, two-way shear, flexure, or a combination of these modes. This paper reviews shear and punching shear-failure mechanisms of one-way slabs under concentrated loads tested from the literature and investigates the accuracy of different approaches to predict the ultimate capacity...

We construct a new class of efficient Monte Carlo methods based on continuous-time piecewise deterministic Markov processes (PDMPs) suitable for inference in high dimensional sparse models, i.e. models for which there is prior knowledge that many coordinates are likely to be exactly 0. This is achieved with the fairly simple idea of endowing...

One-way slabs under concentrated loads may fail by one-way shear such as wide beams, punching shear, flexure, or by combining two or more of these mechanisms. Nevertheless, most publications have only addressed shear and punching failures without flexural reinforcement yielding. This study investigates the ultimate shear capacity of one-way...

A large number of bridges in the Netherlands have transversely post tensioned deck slabs cast in-situ between flanges of precast girders and were found to be critical in shear when evaluated by Eurocode 2. To investigate the bearing (punching shear) capacity of such bridges, a 1:2 scale bridge model was constructed in the laboratory and...

On-chip spatial and polarization multiplexing has emerged as a powerful strategy to boost the data transmission capacity of integrated optical transceivers. State-of-the-art multiplexers require accurate control of the relative phase or the spatial distribution among different guided optical modes, seriously compromising the optical...

With the rise of hydrogen as a green alternative for fossil fuels, the demand for storage capacity of hydrogen increases significantly. Due to the high risk of explosions in urban environments it brings along, the blast analysis of buildings within in range of the explosions becomes more relevant.<br/><br/>The goal of this research is to develop...

A novel approach for the practical realization of the feeding lines in connected array of slots is presented. The proposed feed concept is based on a parallel-plate waveguide (PPW) structure and allows simplifying the unit cell design. When compared to the typical integrated coaxial feed, the PPW-based feeding structure can reduce the cost...

Generally, joint performance in concrete pavements is evaluated in laboratory by applying dynamic loads that require large scale experimental setups. In order to propose a simplified laboratory test, a comprehensive literary review of the fundamentals of load transfer at joints is made, and the load transfer efficiency obtained via a reduced...

Eccentric punching shear can occur in concrete slab–column connections when the connection is subjected to shear and unbalanced moments. Unbalanced moments occur in all floor slabs at the edge and corner columns. As such, this problem is of practical relevance. However, most punching experiments in the literature deal with concentric punching...

Three-dimensional (3D) geometric bridge models play an important role in bridge inspection, assessment, and management. Laser scanning nowadays offers a cost-efficient method to capture dense, accurate 3D topographic data of surfaces of the bridge. However, given the typical complexity of bridges, current workflows using commercial software...

Railway track transition zones are areas where there is a sudden change in the track-ground structure. They include changes between ballasted and slab track, bridge approaches, and tunnel entry/exits. They are often the location of rapid track deterioration, and therefore this paper investigates the use of auxiliary rails and soil improvement...

This study investigated the effect of fire on the ultimate load-bearing capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) slabs. The structural response of RC circular specimens subjected to static load conditions after exposure to a hydrocarbon fire on one side of the specimen was examined. Two fire exposure times were considered (60 and 120 min) in...

Modelling slab track-bridge interaction subject to a moving train usually involves solving complex high-dimensional matrix equations which is time-consuming. This research works to optimize the auto-assembling process in the slab track-bridge coupling matrices formulation and improve the computational efficiency by truncating the dynamic...
