New Insights on the Failure of Fukae Bridge (Kobe 1995)

Researchers from the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geomatic Engineering, ETH Zurich, Switzerland have offered new insights on the failure of Fukae Bridge during...

Aerodynamics of High-Rise Buildings

To improve the safety and serviceability of super-tall buildings in strong winds, aerodynamic optimization of building shapes is considered to be the most efficient...

Lateral Load Resistance of High-Rise Buildings

The lateral load resistance and stability of buildings get increasingly important as the height of the building increases. Gravity loads on buildings can be...

Column Axial Shortening in Tall Buildings

When a vertical compressive load is applied to a column, it shortens. Axial shortening takes place in all structures but when reaching great heights...

Effects of Diesel Contamination on the Engineering Properties of Natural Soils

Soil contamination is a serious problem and major environmental problem worldwide. Oil contamination of soils can occur as a result of oil drilling and...

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...

Bonding of Old and New Concrete

In construction, there always comes a time when there is need to bond hardened concrete (substrate) with fresh concrete topping/overlay. The aim of this...
