The transverse stability of timber terraced houses can be provided by CLT stability walls where decoupled timber terraced houses are preferred to meet acoustic requirements leading to rather large thicknesses for the CLT stability walls and many large connections for anchorage to the foundation. The main goal of this research was to investigate...

Military vehicles are often subjected to dynamic loads from mines. To protect these vehicles, steel plating underneath the vehicle is applied. However, these steel plates can be quite heavy, resulting in a slower vehicle. Composite laminates, however, are much lighter and also prove to be capable of protecting these vehicles from mines.<br/...

This paper aims to illustrate the effect of the impact damage on fatigue behavior of CF/PEEK-titanium hybrid laminates. To achieve this end, a fatigue life model was proposed to predict the S–N curves of the laminates at various initial impact energy levels and stress ratios based on the energy dissipation approach. The energy dissipation...

Methods based on fracture mechanics have been widely used in fatigue delamination growth (FDG) characterization of composite laminates. These methods are based on the similitude hypothesis. It is therefore important to have appropriate parameters to well represent the similitude, which is useful for fatigue delamination test standard...

Fatigue delamination growth (FDG) is an important failure in composite structures during their long-term operations. Hygrothermal aging can have significant effects on interlaminar resistance. It is therefore really necessary to explore FDG behavior in composite laminates with hygrothermal aging. Dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA),...

Fibre-reinforced laminated composites are constructed layer-by-layer, allowing their material properties to be easily tailored relative to their isotropic counterparts (metallic alloys). Moreover, a composite structure with variable stiffness (VS) can be made by spatially tailoring stiffness across a laminate. This permits better load...

This research addresses the challenge of climate change and air quality, focusing on the construction industry's impact in the Netherlands. The construction sector, a significant source of air pollution, necessitates sustainable practices for mitigating the effects of climate change and reducing pollutants. The study emphasises the need for...

THICK composite materials, e.g., thickness of more than 50 mm, are increasingly being used across diverse industry sectors owing to their significant advantages of weightsavings, superiormaterial properties and load-carrying capability. These materials tend to be adopted in safety-critical applications such as large primary or secondary load...

Fibre metal laminates (FML) were initially conceived as a hybrid material, aiming to create synergy between the impact resistance of metals and excellent fatigue resistance of fibre reinforced polymers. The purpose of this approach was to overcome the limitations of single-material structures. However, despite its considerable promise, the use...

Fibre-reinforced polymer composite laminates are used extensively nowadays in various applications due to their superior mechanical properties. However, a great weakness of composite laminates is their susceptibility to out-of-plane concentrated loading (which can be broadly divided into quasi-static indentation and impact) owing to their weak...

Fibre Metal Laminates (FMLs) have been widely utilised in aircraft structures for their specific strength, durability and damage tolerance. Most aircraft structures, due to their size, require joining, and FMLs allow for a special type of joint called the splice, a unique but a lesser known joint.<br/><br/>The bulk of research into the splice...

Cities are constructed with extractive, finite resources that put enormous pressure on global climatic conditions. The building and construction sector is responsible for 36 percent of the global energy demand and 37 percent of the carbon dioxide emissions worldwide. With the prospect of massive urbanization, the built environment will...

This study investigates the feasibility of manufacturing wooden elements using Layer Object Manufacturing (LOM) technology to replace steel nodes in the built environment. LOM offers significant advantages in allowing the designer to dictate the grain direction of each layer of material and optimize the cutting process, potentially reducing the...

Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) is an innovative type of fibre-reinforced cement-based composite that has superior tensile properties. Because of this, it holds the potential to enhance the shear capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) beams, if applied properly.<br/><br/>Experimental research was thus carried out with the purpose of...

It has been shown that the roots of guided waves in laminate plates produced by the ordinary differential equations (ODE) approach may not hold under to some computational conditions. A particular drawback of the 2D formulation of the ODE approach is the lack of reliability in the case of unidirectional laminates due to the decoupling...

Quasi-static or cyclic loading of an artificial starter crack in unidirectionally fibre-reinforced composite test coupons yields fracture mechanics data—the toughness or strain-energy release rate (labelled G)—for characterising delamination initiation and propagation. Thus far, the reproducibility of these tests is typically between 10 and...

After half a century of developing fatigue delamination prediction models, where accuracy seems more important than physical understanding, this research aims to merge both aspects. To that aim, strain energy release (SER) within the fatigue load cycle was studied using acoustic emission. The correlation between the measured strain energy...

The bias-extension test is one of the test methods to characterise the intra-ply shear behaviour of continuous fibre reinforced composites including fabrics and unidirectional (UD) materials. For the determination of the major mechanical properties of metals, often a uniaxial tensile test is used. Combination of these two methods for the...

Purpose: Glass material is largely used for load-bearing components in buildings. For this reason, standardized calculation methods can be used in support of safe structural design in common loading and boundary conditions. Differing from earlier literature efforts, the present study elaborates on the load-bearing capacity, failure time and...

Embedded load-bearing laminated glass connections have gained popularity in recent years due to their mechanical performance and aesthetic appeal. However, there is a paucity of data on their structural behaviour across a range of temperatures that may arise in building applications and there is also no simplified mechanics-based model for...
