Bond Behaviour of Corroded and CFRP Repaired RC Beams Subjected to Monotonic and Repeated Loading
(University of Waterloo, 2012-09-27)
All reinforced concrete (RC) design theories are based on the assumption that concrete exhibits a perfect bond with the steel reinforcement. The bond between steel and concrete is essential to the transfer of the load ...
The Fatigue Behaviour of Welded and Bolted Shear Connectors in Composite Highway Bridges
(University of Waterloo, 2018-09-26)
At present, many Canadian bridges are overdue for rehabilitation or replacement. In the case of steel-concrete composite bridges, the shear connection between the concrete deck and the steel girders is a vital element of ...
Bond Behaviour of Concrete Beams with Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer Bars Under Fatigue Loading
(University of Waterloo, 2019-01-17)
Since the 1980s and after the aerospace industries faced several periods of economic difficulty, the companies that produced fibre-reinforced polymers (FRPs) started to introduce them as new materials for construction ...
Fatigue Bond Behaviour of Corroded Reinforcement and CFRP Confined Concrete
(University of Waterloo, 2007-07-13)
Bond in a reinforced concrete (RC) structure is the interaction force that transfers force between the steel and concrete. It influences the structural performance and serviceability of a structure under both static and ...
Probabilistic Strain-Based Fracture Mechanics Analysis of Weldments
(University of Waterloo, 2019-08-13)
Welded joints are considered to be one of the most critical locations in structural components from a fatigue perspective because of high stress concentrations near the weld toe region, the presence of tensile residual ...
