In this study, an innovative curing technique, that is able to polarize the ions inside cement pastes is investigated. This technique is curing the cement paste while applying a direct current (DC). A total of 6 cement paste cubes were cast, 3 of them were not treated so it will serve as a reference and other 3 were cured while applying 25 V DC on...
This study investigates an innovative polarizing technique that can enhance the piezoelectric behavior of Portland cement pastes. This technique utilizes a direct current (DC) during the initial curing stage to polarize the cement paste. The simplicity of this technique makes it attractive for future real-world applications, especially in the struc...
This study investigates the effect of periodic overloading on the fatigue life of Reinforced Concrete (RC) beams strengthened with externally bonded Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP). The study includes 6 RC beams with dimensions of 152.4 × 152.4 × 1500 mm strengthened with one layer of carbon fiber sheet attached to the soffits. One strengthened bea...
This paper aims to study the effect of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) strengthening techniques on the fatigue limit of Reinforced Concrete (RC) beams. An accelerated fatigue method was utilized to find the fatigue limit based on the hypothesis of linear cumulative damage as determined by the Palmgren-Miner rule. Six RC beams with dimensions...
Electrically conductive concrete (ECC) has been suggested to be used in cold areas for deicing snow on highway roads and city streets. The following study investigates the impact of graphite as supplementary cementitious material on concrete conductivity to aid future research developing ECC. In addition, the study investigates the impact of graphi...
Several standard fatigue testing methods are used to determine the fatigue stress-life prediction model (S-N curve) and the endurance limit of Reinforced Concrete (RC) beams, including the application of constant cyclic tension-tension loads at different stress or strain ranges. The standard fatigue testing methods are time-consuming and expensive...
This study aimed at developing a simple procedure to predict the fatigue life of reinforced concrete beams strengthened with externally bonded fiber reinforced polymers (EBFRP). The study tested classical beam theory against 68 data points collected from the literature to validate its use. The calculated stresses showed good agreement with the data...
Strengthening reinforced concrete (RC) beams with externally bonded fiber reinforced polymers (EBFRP) has gain interest in the civil engineering field in the past 3 decades. Numerous studies investigated the behavior of such strengthening system under monotonic loading. However, its fatigue behavior still lacks a comprehensive understanding. This s...
