Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present a proposal for the design of steel structures sensitive to buckling to fill the gaps in the current Standard EN 1993-1-1, providing guidelines to obtain the magnitude of the imperfection generalizing the procedure given in clause 5.3.2(11) [...]

Abstract

In this paper the ability of the basic shell triangular (BST) element to perform linearized buckling analysis is evaluated. The results have been compared with analytical solutions and [...]

Abstract

The excessive usage of cement has caused incremental production of greenhouse gases which consequences lead to the overheating of the planet. These detrimental effects have highlighted the importance of using pozzolanic materials. Therfore, using alkali-activated concrete pavement [...]

Abstract

In recent years exponential increase in the use of adhesives in industrial processes is observed. Nowadays these materials are used in applications as diverse as aerospace industry, automotive industry, railway industry or even civil construction. In the same way, the use of composite [...]

Abstract

A constitutive model devised for the analysis of concrete structures, and suitable for generic two- or three-dimensional applications, is presented and validated. For plain concrete a tension-compression [...]

Abstract

CO2 flue gases acquired from different sources contain a significant amount of impurities and water, which are corrosive to the pipeline steel. To design the pipelines for large scale of CO2 flue gas transport, the corrosion of pipeline steels has to be investigated in the realistic [...]

Abstract

If the stress intensity at a certain point of a structure made of ductile materials reaches the yield point, the structure does not necessarily fail or deform excessively. Instead, stress redistribution could take place and some further load increments could be supported. Thus, the [...]

Abstract

The coal mine is located in the town of Labin, Istria peninsula, Croatia. Restoration of the tower is a part of the project that includes thorough restoration and re-use of the Labin mining complex for cultural, tourist and educational purposes. The tower was built in 1938 by Italian [...]
