Shear Design of Fiber Reinforced Concrete Structural Elements

Fiber Reinforced concrete is used for concrete structural members for around thirty years and developed for both prestressed and conventional or ordinary reinforced concrete elements. Fiber reinforced polymer bars are used as reinforcement in these concrete. There are different types of ...

Factors Affecting Deflections of Reinforced Concrete Beams and Slabs

There are various factors which affect deflections of reinforced concrete beams and slabs which needs to be considered and assessed adequately during design and construction. These factors can be divided into two group including parameter known before construction and factors unknown ...

Vibration Analysis of Machine Foundations

Machine Foundation is subjected to dynamic loads. These loads develop the vibratory motions which will transmit into the soil below the foundation. The effect on soil caused by these vibrations is analyzed using principles of soil dynamics and theory of ...

Structural Design of Bunkers with Procedure and Design Considerations

Bunkers and silos are structure that are used as storage tanks. Structural design of bunkers with procedure and design considerations are discussed. The bunkers and silos made of reinforced concrete have almost replaced the steel storage structures. Concrete bins possess less ...

Design of Geogrid Segmental Retaining Wall with Calculations

Geogrid segmental retaining wall is used where tall wall is required. Details and design of geogrid segmental retaining wall with calculations is described in this article. Segmental retaining wall height is restricted due to stability issues, but the height can be ...

Seismic Design of Retaining Wall

Seismic design of retaining wall is considerably complicated problem in which assumptions have to be considered in order to make indeterminable issue solvable employing theory of statics and differential calculus. The computation of each static and dynamic pressure acting on retaining ...
