Abstract null null We consider a swelling porous-elastic system with viscoelastic damping and delay feedbacks acting on the fluid equation. Using the multiplier method and under the well-known assumption on the weight of delay term, we unexpectedly establish a general decay result without imposing the usual condition of equal wave speeds of the system, unlike the case of Timoshenko and porous systems where damping on only one of the equations requires equal wave speeds propagation. Our coupling ...

Abstract The impact of microbial calcium carbonate on concrete strength has been extensively evaluated in the literature. However, there is no predicted equation for the compressive strength of concrete incorporating ureolytic bacteria. Therefore, in the present study, 69 experimental tests were taken into account to introduce a new predicted mathematical formula for compressive strength of bacterial concrete with different concentrations of calcium nitrate tetrahydrate, urea, yeast extract, bac...

Abstract Bio-inspired self-healing of concrete cracks has been widely exploited to improve concrete properties and thus increase concrete life span using different bacterial species in recent years. The most common bacterial species found in the present literature are B. sphaericus, Sporosarcina pasteurii, Spore-forming alkali-resistant bacteria, B. megaterium and B. subtilis, while there is no published research using B. pseudomycoides species to heal concrete cracks. Furthermore, the need for ...

Abstract Corrosion initiation time of embedded steel is an important service life parameter, which depends on concrete material make-up, exposure environment, and duration of exposure. The determination of corrosion initiation time in the laboratory is arduous due to the activities involving the data gathering process. This study leverages the capability of machine learning (ML) models to estimate corrosion initiation time of embedded steel through corrosion potential measurement. Self-compactin...

Abstract The construction industry is one of the most dangerous industries worldwide due to deadly fatalities and accidents recorded yearly. Though many countries have established and implemented safety programs, the situation does not seem to have been mitigated. This study aims at developing a risk assessment approach that can be used to enhance the safety performance of construction projects. The study has employed pair-wise comparisons and weighting-by-ranking surveys to establish risk score...

Abstract The petroleum industry is greatly in need of smart and cheap demulsifiers to break heavy crude oil emulsions. This study investigates the performance of palm oil fuel ash (POFA) as a demulsifier of crude oil emulsions produced during hydrocarbon exploration. Highly stable water-in-oil (W/O) emulsions having water:oil ratio of 7:3 were prepared under room temperature (25 °C) at a mixing speed of 1500 rpm. Demulsification performance of various concentrations of POFA (1 wt% to 9 wt%) was ...

Palm oil fuel ash (Pofa) and polyvinyl alcohol fibres were used to make an alkali-activated cementitious composite mortar, which was then tested. Based on the test results, a support vector regression model was developed to estimate the effect of the alkaline activator/Pofa ratio on early compressive strength at different added water contents. The results from the model show that the mortar strength increased as the sodium silicate+sodium hydroxide/Pofa ratio increased up to an optimum, after wh...

Abstract The chemical constituents of precursor materials, the composition and concentration of alkaline activators, volume of free water, and curing conditions are some of the mix design variables that influence the fresh and hardened properties of alkali-activated binders (AABs). To achieve desirable engineering properties and long-term performance of an AAB under various exposure conditions, each of these variables has to be carefully controlled. The reported research focused on the influence...
