  • A finite element model is presented for drying of refractory concrete pieces cast into various shapes. Simulations are carried out for one-side-heating drying of refractory concrete slabs. The effects of permeability, heating rate, and slab thickness on pore pressure and moisture removal rate are investigated. Different drying schedules are modeled and analyzed. New schedules are proposed to provide guidelines for on-site drying operations.
  • The purpose of this study is to evaluate the environment performance of high-strength concrete used in super tall buildings as material of environmental load reduction. To this end, this study proposed a plan for the evaluation of energy consumption and CO{sub 2} emission throughout the life cycle of the building, and calculated the energy consumption and CO{sub 2} emission throughout the life cycle of tall apartment building that was actually constructed using this plan. Then, we evaluated the energy consumption and CO{sub 2} emission reduction performance for the life cycle of the building by the decrease of concrete and reinforcedmore » rebar quantities and the increase of building lifespan obtained through conversion of existing building's concrete compressive strength to 40 MPa high-strength concrete. As a result, the life cycle energy consumption in case 3, a high-strength concrete building, decreased 15.53% and 2.95% respectively compared with cases 1 and 2. The evaluation of the general strength concrete buildings and the life cycle CO{sub 2} emission also decreased 16.70% and 3.37% respectively, compared with cases 1 and 2.« less
  • A cathodic protection (CP) system was designed and installed on precast concrete cantilever beams that were suffering severe reinforcement corrosion due to mixed-in chloride. Activated titanium strip anodes were placed with a geometry based on laboratory current distribution experiments. The CP system was divided into relatively small zones for easy control and monitoring. Two years of monitoring has shown that the system functions satisfactorily.
  • In the present study a new discrete-element approach for the evaluation of the seismic resistance of composite reinforced concrete-masonry structures is presented. In the proposed model, unreinforced masonry panels are modelled by means of two-dimensional discrete-elements, conceived by the authors for modelling masonry structures, whereas the reinforced concrete elements are modelled by lumped plasticity elements interacting with the masonry panels through nonlinear interface elements. The proposed procedure was adopted for the assessment of the seismic response of a case study confined-masonry building which was conceived to be a typical representative of a wide class of residential buildings designed to themore » requirements of the 1909 issue of the Italian seismic code and widely adopted in the aftermath of the 1908 earthquake for the reconstruction of the cities of Messina and Reggio Calabria.« less
