Abstract

With the introduction of new building products made of planar glued board lamellas, the CLT, the restriction of load-bearing structures to linear and thus additively used load-bearing members was abolished. As a result, new, technically determined boundary conditions for moisture [...]

Abstract

This paper presents a contribution for the damage assessment of historic masonry churches exposed to slow-moving landslides. In particular, the authors identified four global damage mechanisms, which are presented here by means of the critical damage assessment of four case studies [...]

Abstract

The scale effect in Composite Materials, consisting in the delay in the first damage appearance as ply thickness decreases, is, at present, a phenomenon under study due to the use of ultrathin plies (whose thickness may reach 20 microns) in the most leading industries. Based on [...]
