Modeling Facade Structures Using Point Clouds From Dense Image Matching

Author(s) : DIETER FRITSCH , MATHIAS ROTHERMEL, SUSANNE BECKER
Abstract: The automated generation of 3D computer models for urban planning and disaster management is an ongoing activity since about two decades. For 10-15 years aerial LiDAR seemed to be a key technology to solve the data collection problem for this purpose. Today, aerial photographs with nadir and oblique...     Read More

Experimental Investigation on the Influence of Micronized Biomass Silica in the Recycled Aggregate Concrete

Author(s) : B.H.BHARATKUMAR, J.PRAMEETTHAA
Abstract: The use of recycled aggregate concrete in structural application is restricted due to the high strength reduction and higher water absorption. In this study, Micronized biomass silica (MBS) a pozzolanic materialproduced from rice husk was used as a partial replacement of cement to improve the perfor...     Read More

A Study of the Stress Ratio Effects on Fatigue Crack Growth using LOWESS Regression

Author(s) : A RAMA CHANDRA MURTHY, ABHISHEK KUMAR, NAGESH R.IYER
Abstract: In this paper, seven fatigue crack growth models, namely Priddle, McEvily, Weertman, Collipriest, Broek, Walker and Forman have been examined. The mean stress effect on fatigue crack growth rate is commonly introduced into fatigue crack growth (FCG) relation through the stress ratio, R. Therefore, t...     Read More

Numerical investigations on static response of Laced Steel-Concrete composite slabs

Author(s) : A.THIRUMALAISELVI, N.ANANDAVALLI
Abstract: Laced Steel-Concrete Composite (LSCC) system consists of perforated steel cover plates, which are connected using reinforcing members and cross rods, and infilled with concrete. Reinforcing members are in the form of continuously bent rods known as lacing, which transfer shear continuously. This enh...     Read More

Influence of Anti-Cracking Agent on Asphalt Pavement with Cement-Treated Base

Author(s) : JIA LI, JIANMIN ZI , LEI MAO, TAO HU
Abstract: The cement-treated base(CTB) has been used successfully to address ever-increasing traffic volume and at locations where subgrade quality is poor, however, one of the main distresses for asphalt pavement with CTB is reflective cracking. An innovative construction methods[Continuous Construction Meth...     Read More
