Since the introduction of cementitious materials, shrinkage-induced earlyage cracking (EAC) has emerged as a significant issue that negatively influences the function, durability, and aesthetics of concrete structures like dams, tunnels, and underground garages. This thesis aims to develop new experimental and modelling techniques that help...

In most of developing countries across the world, pavement design is still based on an empirical approach that may result in premature failure or overdesigned pavements. A shift from an empirical to a semi-mechanistic or mechanistic approach is the need of modern time. In this regard, computational tools such as finite element (FE) are being...

In recent years, a new class of super saturated binary and ternary alloys have demonstrated the ability for the self-healing of creep-induced voids formed at the grain boundaries. However, a clear understanding of the parameters affecting the self-healing mechanism is still not yet complete. One of the main challenges is understanding the...

Early-age cracking risk induced by autogenous deformation is high for cementitious materials of low water-binder ratios. The autogenous deformation, viscoelastic properties, and stress evolution are three important factors for understanding and quantifying the early-age cracking risk. This paper systematically reviewed the experimental and...

This thesis addresses the topic of ongoing (excessive) deformations observed in balanced cantilever prestressed concrete bridges all over the world. Many authors attribute this behavior to the time-dependent phenomena of creep and shrinkage. Balanced cantilever bridges are classified as creep-sensitive structures, and for that reason, a detailed...

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...

For some decades now, additive manufacturing has been a revolutionary technology which generates enormous interest in both industrial and academic applications. 3D concrete printing (3DCP), an automated construction method, is able to manufacture the computer-designed model through material deposition. This innovative technique can considerably...

This study presents a failure analysis in two reformer tubes used for hydrogen production in a petrochemical industry. These tubes (Tube A and Tube B) were made by the centrifugal casting of HP-Nb alloy in such a way that one contained titanium as a micro-element, and the other was free from titanium in its chemical composition. Although the two...

This paper investigates the influence of temperature on autogenous deformation and early-age stress (EAS) evolution in ordinary Portland cement paste using a recently developed Mini Temperature Stress Testing Machine (Mini-TSTM) and Mini Autogenous Deformation Testing Machine (Mini-ADTM). In the Mini-TSTM/ ADTM, CEM I 42.5 N paste with a...

SnBiAgCu solder alloy is an attractive soldering material for temperature-sensitive electronic devices due to its excellent creep properties. This study firstly reports the creep properties of SnBiAgCu solder alloy under different temperatures. Results show that the addition of Bi resulted in better creep resistance compared with that of...

Clay rocks are multiphase porous media having a complex structure and behaviour characterised by heterogeneity, damage and viscosity, existing on a wide range of scales. The mesoscopic scale of mineral inclusions embedded in a clay matrix has an important role in the mechanisms of deformation under mechanical loading by cracking and creeping....

This article presents an overview of methods for analyzing the facture and failure of adhesives. Special attention is given to stress analysis in adhesive bonds, as the difficulty of performing an accurate stress analysis is a major limitation of many failure analysis methods. The article also covers the effect of manufacturing and...

This paper presents a method that modifies commercial engineering-oriented finite element packages for the modelling of Glacial Isostatic Adjustment (GIA) on a self-gravitating, compressible and spherical Earth with 3-D structures. The approach, called the iterative finite element body and surface force (FEMIBSF) approach, solves the...

We propose a new numerical method to analyze the early-age creep of 3D printed segments with the consideration of stress history. The integral creep strain evaluation formula is first expressed in a summation form using superposition principle. The experimentally derived creep compliance surface is then employed to calculate the creep strain...

Cementitious materials may exhibit significant creep at very early age. This is potentially important for concrete 3D printing, where the material is progressively loaded even before it sets. However, does creep actually affect the buildability of 3D printed concrete? Herein, the influence of early-age creep on the buildability of 3D printed...

The coupling effect of initial shear stress and thermal cycles on the thermomechanical behaviour of clay concrete and sand-concrete interfaces has been studied. A set of drained monotonic direct shear tests was conducted at the soil-concrete interface level. Samples were initially sheared to half of the material's shear strength and then they...

In this study, an experimental setup to characterize the early-age creep of 3D printable mortar was proposed. The testing protocol comprises quasi-static compressive loading-unloading cycles, with 180-s holding periods in between. An analytical model based on a double power law was used to predict creep compliance with hardening time and...

Stress evolution of restrained concrete is directly related to early-age cracking (EAC) potential of concrete, which is a tricky problem that often happens in engineering practice. Due to the global objective of carbon reduction, Ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) concrete has become a more promising binder comparing with Ordinary...

Typically precast girders are designed and utilized as simple supported members. Alternatively, the precast girders can be made continuous at the intermediate support using cast-in-place concrete topping. Once the girders are made continuous, time-dependent restraint moments will occur. The magnitude of the restraint moment is mainly affected by...

Long-term settlement is unavoidable but by good prediction accompanied risks can be reduced. Nowadays linear isotach models belong to the state of the art but result in very small strain rates when small load increments or unloading is applied. For that reason this study has focused on the validation of those predictions using InSAR. Different...
