The current understanding of auxetic metamaterials in structural engineering applications is limited. Auxetic materials exhibit lateral contraction under compressive loads, possessing a negative Poisson's ratio. The research addresses this gap, focusing on the use of auxetics for steel reinforcement in structural concrete elements to enhance...

This master thesis investigates the influence of flanges on the shear capacity of reinforced non-rectangular members without shear reinforcement. The study adapts the evaluation procedure developed by Yang (2014) for rectangular cross-sections to analyze plates with holes, I-beams and T-beams.

An extensive Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) is used to determine the efficiency in reducing the carbon footprint of a graving dock. Firstly by identifying the hotspots in a base design, and then by comparing the various design alternatives. The focus is on reducing the amount of reinforced concrete used in the design of the dock floor by adding...

Flexural shear failure is a brittle failure mode that can occur in reinforced concrete (RC) beams without stirrups due to the combination of flexural and shear stresses. The failure mode begins with vertical flexural cracks at the bottom of the RC beam central span area due to flexural tensile stresses, followed by diagonal cracks. During...

The use of precast Reinforced Concrete has been the norm for the construction of tunnel linings for decades. However, the use of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete is gaining popularity due to its beneficial mechanical properties, improved sustainability, improved durability, and lowered costs compared to traditional Reinforced Concrete (RC). The...

In the construction of subsoil structures, a common challenge is the presence of a high groundwater level in combination with the absence of a naturally impermeable layer or an environment susceptible to settlements due to lowering the groundwater level. To overcome this issue, a building pit with an underwater concrete floor (UCF) can be...

This article presents a numerical study on the influence of the anchorage shear hysteresis on the seismic response of nonstructural components (NSC) connected to multi-storey reinforced concrete (RC) buildings, and of the anchorage itself. To cover a variety of different types of shear hysteresis shapes, this contribution considered the...

To assess the structural capacity of reinforced concrete structures, identifying the internal cracks is important. Acoustic emission (AE) is promising to estimate the location of internal cracks. However, the localization is influenced by many factors like arrival time picking error, presence of crack, etc., resulting in localization error. The...

Thin-walled textile-reinforced concrete beams have recently emerged as a promising approach for material-efficient design. However, the increased complexity of the formwork is a major challenge in implementing such elements for broader use in the construction industry. This study presents a novel type of stay-in-place flexible formworks with...

In design, the sectional depth of reinforced concrete spread footings is usually governed by design code provisions for punching shear, which are derived primarily from experiments on slab-column connections. Previous experiments have shown that the punching behavior of concentrically loaded spread footings differs from that of slab-column...

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...

Concrete is characterized in terms of its engineering properties, mainly strength and stiffness, which are subsequently used in structural design. However, the apparent (i.e., measured) concrete properties are not intrinsic but dependent on the conditions under which the measurement is performed. Herein a combined experimental and numerical...

Ultra-high performance fiber reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) is an advanced cementitious composite with high compressive strength and low permeability. Due to its excellent mechanical properties and superior durability, UHPFRC is considered promising for strengthening of the existing concrete bridges. In order to examine its strengthening...

Bond deterioration is one of the major consequences of reinforcement corrosion in reinforced concrete (RC) structures. In this paper, a two-phased numerical modelling approach is presented that aims to determine the constitutive behaviour (bond–slip) at the reinforcement-concrete interface at a certain corrosion level. The novelty of the...

Over the last century, over one hundred crack width formulas have been developed to calculate the width and spacing of cracks in reinforced and prestressed concrete elements. It is unclear which formulas are the most accurate. An extensive comparison study is required to determine which formulas accurately describe the crack patterns,...

Ultra-high performance fiber-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) exhibits high compressive and tensile strength together with outstanding durability. Due to these superior properties, UHPFRC is promising for retrofitting existing reinforced concrete (RC) bridges. While research and on-site applications show the significant improvement of RC structures...

An experimental research into the use of basalt as reinforcement in concrete to reduce the ECI value of a concrete quay wall apron. In this research experiments with basalt minibars and basalt reinforced polymer rebars are performed to compare directly to steel fibres and steel rebars. With the test results 4 designs are produced resulting in...

Villa Henny (1916), designed by Robert van’t Hoff, baptized as the concrete villa, defines a turning point in modernism in the Netherlands. The Villa has been extensively researched in relation to the De Stijl art movement and influence by the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, yet less attention has been given to the fact that it is one of...
