Effect of Impact Load on Lap Length of Reinforcements in RC Structures

Lap length and anchorage length of reinforcements is very important for continuity, strength, and ease of construction in reinforced concrete structures. When reinforcements are...

Effects of Trees on Wind Comfort of Pedestrians

Pedestrian wind comfort can be improved when horizontally incoming airflow passes through trees in the urban areas. This is according to recent research carried...

Modeling of Soils Using Isogeometric Analysis

Researchers from the Department of Construction Sciences, Lund University, Sweden have presented isogeometric analysis as an alternative to finite element analysis for modelling of...

High Temperature Behaviour of Concrete Produced with Desert Sand

There has always been some issues with the use of desert sand as a construction material due to the fact that it is too...

The Role of Compression Steel in Deflection of Reinforced Concrete Structures

Deflection is one of the most important serviceability limit state criteria in the design of reinforced concrete structures. Excessive deflection in a structure can...

Understanding Human-Structure Interaction

Recent researches have shown that human beings interact with structural systems undergoing vibration. Initially it was thought that human body is an inert mass...

TMT Reinforcements Can Change Design Specifications in Nigeria

Nigeria’s reinforcement market is usually categorised into ‘local’ and ‘foreign’ reinforcements which are priced differently in the market. Local reinforcements are manufactured in the...

BIM can Assist Construction Robots in Object Recognition

The construction industry remains one of the least automated industries which depend on manual human labour for maximum productivity. The role of robots in...

3D Building Services Systems Integration in Design of Buildings

Building service systems (BSS) are important components that makes a building functional and habitable. BSS includes piping network of fresh water and wastewater, electrical...

Waste Tyres can Improve Seismic Performance of Integral Abutment Bridges

Resuse of about 1.5 billion waste tyres that are produced annually worldwide inspired this research on the behaviour of rubberised backfills for integral abutment...

Reputable Journals in Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineering is the application of engineering principles to the acquisition, interpretation, and use of knowledge of materials of the Earth's crust and earth...

Deep Learning can be used to Detect Cracks in Fire Damaged Structures

Researchers from Ewha Womans University, Seoul, South Korea, have proposed a machine learning technique for detecting surface cracks on fire damaged concrete. Even though...

Guidelines for Tying of Reinforcement

In the construction of reinforced concrete structures, reinforcement bars must be tied together in order to hold them in place and to also facilitate...

Cost of Reinforcement Works in Nigeria

Installation of reinforcements is an important item of work in the construction of reinforced concrete structures. The cost of reinforcement works therefore significantly impacts...

Design of Shear Walls

Shear walls are structural members that provide additional lateral stiffness to a building by resisting shear, moment, and axial forces, which are produced due...

Technical Guide: Detailing and Arrangement of Beam Reinforcements on Site

Beams are horizontal structural elements used for supporting lateral loads. In conventional reinforced concrete structures, beams usually receive load from the floor slab, but...
