Article
In this study, two prepared steel beam specimens subjected to concentrated load were examined. One of those beams is strengthened with using carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) laminates. The examined specimens have the same physical properties in terms of area section and clear span length. Also, a cover plate was used at the top flange and int...

This paper presents an experimental and numerical investigation on the behavior of reinforced concrete hybrid beams under two point load. Eight beams of dimensions (150×200×1300 mm) were cast and tested. The hybrid specimens contain of two layers, the upper layer (in the compression zone) made of self-compacted concrete (SCC) with compressive stren...
Conference Paper
Usage of concrete increases day by day with rapid growth of construction industries. Generally, in any structure, the slab represent the most important member that make a space. Besides, the weight of the slab is approximately 90% of the total weight of the structure. That’s mean the slab is the largest member that consuming concrete. So an attempt...

This paper presents an experimental and analytical investigation on the behavior of self-consolidating concrete (SCC) slabs with plastic bubbles under concentric and eccentric load. Twenty-four slabs of dimensions 1500 x 1500 mm (59 x 59 in.) with a total thickness of 100 or 130 mm (3.94 or 5.12 in.) were cast and tested. The main considered variab...

Applying some material such as Flunkout or sodium silicate on concrete surface has a great effect in enhancing the strength of concrete and eliminate the damage resulted from exposure to aggressive environments. Besides, it's extended the service life of concrete. This research present a study on the effect of (Flunkout and sodium silicate) on the...

Strengthening of the concrete structure is one of the most difficult and important tasks of civil engineering. This paper presented the application of nonlinear finite element models in the analysis of Corner Strengthening of CFRP-Confined Concrete Column by using ANSYS software. The finite element models are build using a smeared cracking approach...
Article
Full-text available
Unbalanced moments and eccentric loads are commonly occurred in building with flat plates, resulted from unequal spans or loading on either side of the column. Usually, the most critical situation in the design of concrete flat plates is the design of slab-column connection. In this region the concentration of loads and moments can lead to punching...

The behavior of twelve reinforced concrete bubbled slabs of dimensions (1500×1500 mm) with thickness of (100 or 130 mm) under concentric load was investigated to study the effect of several variables on ultimate load capacity, central deflection of the slab, strains in flexural reinforcement and in concrete and the value of failure angle. The main...

The new prefabricated construction technology using BubbleDeck is recently applied in many industrial projects in the world. BubbleDeck uses hollow plastic spheres and therefor it is an innovate method of virtually eliminating the concrete part in the middle of conventional slab which does not contribute to the structural performance. Hence, this p...

This study is conducted to investigate experimentally the punching shear and flexural strengths of reinforced concrete flat plate slabs made with Non-Rectangular (triangular and trapezoidal) shaped. Four test self-compacting concrete slab groups were manufactured, each of which consisted of three slab specimens identical in size and shape but diffe...

The exposure of reinforced concrete slabs to high temperature causes changes in their structural behavior. This work aims to study the post-heating behavior of self compacted concrete (SCC) regular (square) and irregular (trapezoidal) shaped flat plates and assessing the residual punching shear strength of these slabs. Twenty four reduced scale...
