  1. 1. Reinforcement Layout in Concrete Pile Foundations : A study based on non - linear finite element analysis

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Mohammad Mustafa Angar; [2020]
    Keywords : Pile cap; Nonlinear finite element analysis; ATENA 3D; Reinforcement layout; Strut and tie method; Pålfundament; icke-linjära finita elementmodeller; strut and tie-metoden;

    Abstract : The main topic of this thesis concerns the behavior of concrete pile cap supported by four piles with two varying positions of longitudinal reinforcements. The positions include top of piles and bottom of the pile cap. For this purpose, non-linear finite element models of a pile cap are created using software ATENA 3D. READ MORE

  2. 2. Recycling of concrete waste with wood waste through heating compaction

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Li Liang; [2020]
    Keywords : Recycling; Concrete waste; Wooden waste; Heating powder compaction;

    Abstract : Concrete, as primary building material, is widely used in most construction project. For this reason, large amounts of concrete waste were generated from construction and demolition. One way to reuse concrete waste is to use it as backfill material for landfilling and road bases. READ MORE
