Abstract The environmental impact of traditional Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) concrete is a significant problem that requires urgent solutions in the construction industry. The development of geopolymer concrete is one of the most significant breakthroughs in the process of replacing OPC concrete. Through comprehensive experimental and numerical analyses, this study investigates the structural behaviours of large-scale steel reinforced geopolymer concrete beams (GCBs) made from low-calcium fly...

Abstract Retrofitting concrete with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) wrap has been considered as an effective method to compensate for the loss of the compressive strength of the concrete at an elevated temperature. This paper presents a study on the axial compressive behavior of heat-damaged steel fiber-reinforced concrete strengthened with carbon FRP (CFRP) wraps. To this effect, steel fibers were added to two concrete mixtures with volume fractions of 0.5% and 1%. The effect of full and partial...

Abstract The need for sustainable and environmentally friendly concrete for construction has resulted in the development of low carbon concretes such as geopolymer concrete. Geopolymer concrete replaces cement with industrial waste materials i.e., utilizes fly ash and slag for its mixture along with the addition of a small quantity of alkali activator required for the geopolymerization process. There is a large number of articles published on the mix proportion, workability, strength and materia...

Abstract The behaviour of high strength concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) columns with slender sections under concentric loading is experimentally explored in this study. The test program includes a series of six CFST columns made of welded built-up square tube with very high strength materials and different width-to-thickness ratios. The performance of these specimens is evaluated under compression based on their failure mode, ultimate strength, strain development and axial load-shortening rela...

Abstract Hydrogen gas is a renewable energy source for electrical and transportation fuel for vehicular applications. However, the storage and transportation of hydrogen gas are challenging because of its very nature and impact on pipelines and storage tank/facility materials. This paper investigates the influence of hydrogen on the candidate fracture toughness (KQ) of low carbon steel immersed in acidic hydrogen environments for one year which has limited previous research. Steel specimens were...

Abstract Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is recently attracting significant attention due to the high demand for environmentally friendly materials. As a result, the number of buildings and structures comprising CLT is increasing. However, CLT exhibits brittle behavior which can be detrimental to its performance under blast loads. The structure of CLT shows a striking resemblance to that of conch shells, which is also highly composed of brittle materials but exhibits excellent damage tolerance. Thi...

Abstract We develop a new framework for geometric quality assessment of as-built prefabricated facades during construction process using a 3D as-designed model and a 3D as-built semantic model. The framework is based on a digital twin approach which facilitates an automatic quantitative comparison between the 3D as-built digital replica, reconstructed from the 3D as-built lidar point cloud, and the 3D as-designed model. The framework consists of automated correspondence identification and elemen...

Abstract The newly developed waste-based concrete (WBC) is a viable eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to conventional concrete, which has the potential of decreasing the negative impact of concrete production on the eco-system. Therefore, understanding the behavior of WBCs in structural applications is important. To this effect, this paper presents the first study on the behavior of actively confined WBC under axial compression loading. Two batches of WBC containing ground granulated blas...
