How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
This paper presents a discussion of the problem of compressive strength in a direction perpendicular to the grains based on test results of the joints made by timber posts and sill plate. These tests accompanied a larger series of full-scale tests of timber frame walls. The test elements were made of solid softwood (spruce). The wood moisture was l...
Assessment of recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) properties by laboratory tests is still required due to lack of precise guidelines and with taking into account slightly different behaviour of such concretes in comparison with natural aggregate concretes (NAC). It is especially important when recycled concrete aggregates are used for the structural...
In calculation of steel and concrete foundation joints, design of anchors in concrete is significantly important.
Design of foundations for the large industrial buildings is complex and time-consuming, above all due to great number of the load combinations and the coexistent influences of numerous equipment and installations. Reliable foundation of the huge power plant buildings is significantly important, due to strategic role of this type of engineering obje...
Streszczenie. W elemencie sprężonym cięgnami bez przyczepności wydłużenie cięgna odpowiada uśrednionemu odkształceniu betonu wzdłuż kanału kablowego na całej jego długości. Brak powiązania odkształceń zdecydowanie utrudnia proces obliczeniowy. Najogólniej stan naprężenia w kablu bez przyczepności zależy od: schematu statycznego, sposobu obciążenia,...
The efficiency of the textile fabrics used as reinforcement of concrete elements was tested with relation to bending capacity of the thin concrete plates and with the reference to strengthening of concrete columns subjected to axial compression. The results of bending tests proved good effectiveness of textile reinforcement which was equivalent to...
Simple methods for improvement of durability of reinforced-concrete or prestressed-concrete structures became commonly considered targets in the strategy of sustainable building. Promising method for durability improvement of concrete surface is application of controlled permeability formwork (CPF). The most spectacular results of casting concrete...
