7 Common Design Faults Causing Damage to Concrete

There are number of common design faults that lead to the damage of concrete and hence the capacity of the structural member would be reduced. In adequate structural design, inadequate cover, improper joint detailing, incorrect placement of embedments ...

CFRP Laminates for Shear Strengthening of RC Beams

The use of Carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) strips for shear strengthening of reinforced concrete beam has gain great success. Structural beams may loss shear capacity due to environmental influences or design and construction errors and hence rehabilitation ...

5 Methods to Increase Structural Stiffness

The improvement of structural stiffness is crucial because the trend of building construction is toward taller, wider floor, and longer span structures. So, in order to reduce deflections and improve resistance of such structures against lateral loads such as wind and seismic, ...

9 Different Types of Corrosion

Corrosion is the process of deterioration of metal caused by the action of chemicals or electro-chemicals present in the surrounding atmosphere. Corrosion is a major problem especially in the construction industry where various metals are used for structural ...

Seismic Dampers – Types, Working Mechanism, and Components

Damper systems are designed and manufactured to protect structural integrities, control structural damages, and to prevent injuries to the residents by absorbing seismic energy and reducing deformations in the structure.Seismic dampers permit the ...

Influence Line Analysis Method – Tabulated Technique

Influence line represents the variation of either the reaction, shear, moment, or deflection at a specific point in a member, as a concentrated force moves over the member. Influence lines are important for the design of a structure ...

Concrete Frame Construction – Types and Major Components

Concrete frame construction is a construction method which comprises a network of columns and beams to transfer the loads coming onto the structure to the foundation successfully. Wholistically, it forms a structural skeleton for the building which is ...
