    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Konstruktionsmaterial

    Author : Hanasoge Saraswathi Deepthi Prasad; [2020]
    Keywords : Thin ply; composite materials; bearing strength;

    Abstract : Composite layups have been continuously used over many years in various applications. It is necessary to optimize its composition by studying various parameters influencing the mechanical properties and studying the failure behavior. READ MORE

  2. 2. Laboratory testing of shotcrete with fibres of steel, basalt or synthetic materials

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Muralidharan Rengarajan; [2020]
    Keywords : Fibre reinforced shotcrete; Energy absorption; Residual strength; Fibres; and Laboratory testing;

    Abstract : Shotcrete or sprayed concrete has become an inevitable material for stabilising and supporting hard rock tunnels. To prevent rock block fallouts in the excavated tunnel, shotcrete is pneumatically projected under high pressure on the rock surface. READ MORE

  4. 4. Use of Agricultural Wastes as Supplementary Cementitious Materials

    University essay from KTH/Byggvetenskap

    Author : Ezio Marchetti; [2020]
    Keywords : Agricultural waste; Environmental impact; Concrete; Life Cycle Assessment; Oat husk ash; Rice husk ash; Supplementary cementitious materials; Sustainable Construction; Betong; Havreskalaska; Hållbar konstruktion; Jordbruksavfall; Kompletterande cementmaterial; Livscykelanalys; Miljövarudeklaration; Miljöpåverkan; Risskalaska;

    Abstract : Global cement production is continuously increasing from 1990 till 2050 and growing particularly rapidly in developing countries, where it represents a crucial element for infrastructure development and industrialisation. Every tonne of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) produced releases, on average, about 800 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere, or, in total, the overall production of cement represents roughly 7% of all man-made carbon emissions.
