This contribution aims for an enhanced numerical representation for strength prediction of timber. This implies a validated elasto-plastic continuum damage model which considers orthotropy and heterogeneity of the material, and represents the ductile behavior under compression and the brittle material behavior under tension dependent on the...

This research analyses and evaluates the performance of the drainage system in Beira, Mozambique. It considers its formation, maintenance, failure modes and connections, to recommend improvements on its performance. The research identifies six primary failure modes - vegetation overgrowth, human interference, waste accumulation, sedimentation,...

While physics-informed neural networks have been shown to accurately solve a wide range of fluid dynamics problems, their effectivity on highly compressible flows is so far limited. In particular, they struggle with transonic and supersonic problems that involve discontinuities such as shocks. While there have been multiple efforts to alleviate...

A large share of the buildings today is still masonry buildings, both reinforced and unreinforced. Post-earthquake reconnaissance studies have shown a remarkable difference between the performance of reinforced and unreinforced masonry buildings. While the unreinforced masonry buildings tend to suffer severe damage, even collapse, resulting in...

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...

The occurrence of cohesive/adhesive hybrid failure at the bitumen-aggregate interface is widely acknowledged, however, the quantitative evaluation of the cohesion/adhesion proportion is relatively weak. This study explored cohesive/adhesive hybrid failure and provided a quantitative analysis of the proportion between cohesion and adhesion....

By analyzing the failure mechanisms, crashworthiness characteristics of FW composite tubes subjected to two modes of progressive damage and catastrophic failure are investigated using acoustic emission technique and numerical method. The AE signals of ±45° composite tubes were classified using hierarchical and wavelet transform methods, and...

Challenges of reliable prediction of resistance of bonded joints lie in the complexity of stress concentrations, multiple crack paths, mode-mixity and sudden crack propagation. The new Technical Specification for Design of fibre-polymer composite structures (TS) is bridging this gap by providing comprehensive sets of design recommendations and...

Application of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement in concrete beams may cause large deflection and crack width, as well as low shear capacity and ductility due to relatively small stiffness of FRP materials. To avoid these unfavorable factors and evaluate the shear behavior of FRP-reinforced structural members, a high-performance...

Reliability is an essential scientific and technological domain intrinsically linked with system integration. Nowadays, semiconductor industries are confronted with ever-increasing design complexity, dramatically decreasing design margins, increasing chances for and consequences of failures, shortening of product development and qualification...

As a primary component of the marine propulsion systems, ship propellers have been traditionally made of nickel-aluminium-bronze (NAB) or manganese bronze (MB). With the development of fibre reinforced composite materials, the advanced plastic materials are considered to be applied in the manufacturing of marine propellers. Compared to...

The failure of composite laminates is most commonly evaluated through deterministic approaches. However, even though these traditional methods predict the failure well on average, they cannot take into account the inherent probabilistic aspect of failure mechanics. Thus, reliability methods allow for a better structural assessment and improve...

The increasing interest for the application of adhesive joints in naval superstructures motivates researchers to gain an in-depth understanding of the mechanical behaviour and failure mechanisms of these joints. This work reports on an experimental study of the deformation behaviour and damage evolution of a full-scale multi-material joint using...

Structures have to meet a particular level of safety. Therefore, in the European design codes (Eurocodes), three reliability classes (RC) are introduced based on the potential consequence of failure of the structure. For each of the RC a maximum allowable probability of failure is introduced, corresponding to a reliability index. In recent...

A lot of concrete structuressufferingfrom ASR show a decrease in material properties. However, it is not clear what might be the influence of ASR on structural behavior. Influence of restraint is often ignored in material property measurement, while reinforcement is present as a restraint of ASR expansion in most structures.Thisresults in so...

Underground infrastructures and the importance of the people’s safety and structures robustness are relevant and contemporary issues in the civil engineering industry. The demand for this infrastructural typology has developed to such an extent that the need for a better and cost-beneficial knowledge of the risks is necessary.<br/>This thesis...

Adhesive bonded joints are commonly used in structural applications. The thickness of the bondline has an important influence in the resistance of the joint. Information on this topic is mostly available for thin bondlines; up to 1 mm. However, little information is known about the effect of increasing the bondline thickness. This study consists...

In the past 4 years we have witnessed a change in quality and reliability to make the marked introduction of solid-state lighting (SSL) successful. LED penetration levels have reached values of 10–30%, depending on the application. The number and variety of LED packages and, thus, associated LED-based products, have significantly increased in...

In the Netherlands, the shear capacity of a large number of existing reinforced concrete solid slab bridges is subject to discussion, as initial assessments indicated that their capacity was insufficient. In certain cases, the deterministic value of the moment capacity is larger than the deterministic value of the shear capacity. However, when...

This paper presents an experimental research program aiming at assessing the current code provisions of vmin. A large test series was carried out, by varying the reinforcement ratio and loading conditions, the minimum average shear stress that can cause shear failure of a specimen with different depth, concrete strength is determined. The three...
