Abstract: In the construction of road facilities and infrastructure, concrete or asphalt pavement is frequently used, which has the drawback of being impermeable. When the rainy season arrives, puddles or floods become more frequent as a result of the decline in water-absorbing areas. With the discovery of porous concrete, innovation

Abstract: The article presents a method of experimentally determining the ordinates of the natural forms of oscillations of bridges. The method is to add a small amount of mass to the structure and measure the change in natural frequencies. The theoretical rationale and results of a number of experiments are outlined. The accuracy of

Abstract: Shear walls are very stiff and have high strength, making them helpful in many structural engineering applications, particularly for sustaining significant horizontal and weight loads. Shear walls in the context of irregular reinforced concrete constructions might include openings such as windows and doors to meet appropria

Abstract: The growing concern for housing in developing countries, where the need for housing far exceeds the supply offered by the public authorities, has encouraged the development and growth of self-construction in towns and cities. It is with this in mind that the informal and semi-informal sectors are being called upon by proper

Abstract: Residential land prices are crucial for any country’s economy and development. There is, therefore, the need to identify factors affecting the increase in the overall land prices as a first step toward accurately evaluating land assets. This research aims to find the factors affecting residential property prices worldwide b

Abstract: In this study, we conducted electrical resistivity tests and small-diameter drilling tests on mortar surface layers using water-cement ratio and unit water content as experimental factors, and we investigated the effect of electrical resistivity on the drilling speed. Results showed that water content had a considerable eff

Abstract: Glass fiber-reinforced mortars (GRM) are widely used exterior material in construction. However, their flexural strength decreases owing to the deterioration of glass fibers in alkali environment, which can be attributed to the formation of Ca(OH)2. On the other hand, Geopolymers (GP) that do not use cement as a binder can

Abstract: In this study, we examined evaluation methods based on hydraulic flux measured with the permeability-testing device GWT-4000 and its relationship with bleeding, which affects surface layer quality. We also analyzed the effects on bleeding of the permeability distribution in the height direction of a sample. The results show

Abstract: The anchorage design with baseplates according to EN 1992-4 [1] and ACI 318 [2] postulates that the baseplates need to be sufficiently rigid, because the linear distribution of anchor forces is required for calculating the concrete failure resistance of anchor groups.
With the precondition that the baseplate is suffici

Abstract: The design of anchor fastenings in concrete is dealt with in EN 1992-4 [1] only for simple anchor layouts (Figure 1). For fastenings with gap in the fixture near the edge under shear load towards to the edge, maximum of two anchors in a row parallel to the edge can be designed. In the case of fastenings under torsional mome

Abstract: Very long dry seasons due to high temperature and decrease of rainfall rate, may threaten the stability of dams and dikes, and make them more sensitive to internal erosion. This vulnerability raises a question of how such hydraulic structures could behave after the degradation of soil properties. This research investigated

Abstract: A Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) system has the potential for reducing CO2 emission and fossil fuel consumption. The high heating efficiency of a typical GSHP system compared to conventional heating devices, such as gas-fired furnaces or boilers, makes it more attractive in cold-climate regions, e.g., the areas of the north
