Tensile strength of normal and high strength concrete with polypropylene fibers at elevated temperature

Author(s) : ABDUL BAQI, AMJAD MASOOD, FATEMEH SOLTANZADEH, MOHD SHARIQ
Abstract: This paper investigates the effect of thermal loading on the tensile strengths of normal and high strength concrete with and without polypropylene fibers. The unstressed residual split and flexural tensile strength of concrete is determined by testing cylinder and prism specimens. The specimens were...     Read More

Effect of Acidithiobacillus thiooxidans on different types of concrete mixtures

Author(s) : ADRIANA ESTOKOVA, ALENA LUPTAKOVA , MARTINA KOVALCIKOVA
Abstract: Durability of a material is its ability to last for a long time without any significant deterioration. Microorganisms that produce sulphuric acid accelerate the deterioration of concrete structures in a process termed \"Microbially Induced Concrete Corrosion”. The effects of sulphur-oxidizing bact...     Read More

Impact of Urbanization on Rainfall-Runoff Response and an Integrated Approach for Urban Storm Water Drainage Systems of Central Agartala-A Case Study

Author(s) : RATUL DAS
Abstract: During last 20 years the share of urban populations to the country has increased 14% to 30%. This rapid urbanization brings significant changes in the nature of land surfaces in urban areas which affects the runoff process and overland flows during flood. Efficient computation of potentiality of ove...     Read More

Robust Optimum Design of Liquid Column Dampers in Seismic Vibration Control

Author(s) : RAMA DEBBARMA, SUBRATA CHAKRABORTY
Abstract: The optimization of liquid column damper (LCD) system considering model parameter uncertainty is usually obtained by minimizing the performance measure obtained by the total probability theory without any consideration to the variation of the performance of LCD system due to parameter uncertainty. H...     Read More
Keywords: Seismic vibration control, liquid column vibration absorber, bounded uncertain parameters, robust optimization.

Influence of bridge pier position according to flow direction on scour reduction

Author(s) : ADNAN ISMAEL, HAMID HUSSEIN, MUSTAFA GUNAL
Abstract: An experimental study was conducted to examine the effect of change the position of bridge pier to reduce the scour. The experiments were carried out with Q=0.058 m3/s he piers were tested under clear-water conditions for duration of 3 hours. The velocity field measurements were obtained using an Ac...     Read More

Theoretical Model of an Electric Precipitator with Rotating Collecting Electrodes

Author(s) : ASKAR BAUBEK, KASIMOVA BOTAKOZ RAKHMETOLLAEVNA
Abstract: We develop a theoretical model of an electric precipitator with rotating collecting electrodes. Collecting electrodes in the form of a rotating belt can help eliminate negative effects on the work of the precipitator, such as electric resistivity and the re-entrainment. We calculate the optimal spee...     Read More
