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
Full-scale testing of a two-storey flat slab structure is reported, undertaken in the SlabSTRESS research project; the construction and testing were planned and carried out at the ELSA laboratory of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre. The dimensions are three bays by two, spans 4.5 and 5 m, slab thickness 0.2 m, interstorey height 3.2...
This paper presents a critical review of the state of the art of experimental research concerning the seismic response of reinforced concrete flat slab frames. After a summary of tests on connections, the paper examines tests carried out on frames with gravity and cyclic lateral loading, and shake table tests; scaled specimens and one real scale st...
The attenuation performance of metaconcrete specimens characterized by a lattice-like pattern of bi-material resonant inclusions was verified through nondestructive transmission tests spanning the sonic range of frequencies. Seven cubic specimens of metaconcrete with regularly disposed resonant inclusions have been cast from a standard concrete mat...
The reliability of the results of a probabilistic rockfall analysis mainly depends, among other factors, on the number of simulations of boulder trajectories along the slope. Depending on the input parameters of the analysis, the minimum number of simulations necessary to obtain reliable results in terms of boulder velocity, energy or rebound heigh...
European regulations for Seismic design do not include parts related to flat slab design. The Slab STRESS research project was launched as a basis for code development. A real scale flat slab building was designed and the response for gravity and lateral loads was studied experimentally.
