Use of engineered cementitious composite panels for seismic strengthening
Ayatar, Mehmet Engin; Canbay, Erdem; Department of Civil Engineering (2018)
Due to the massive number of deficient buildings in seismically active zones, the demolition and rebuilding of such structures is not a viable option. Instead, rehabilitation of seismically deficient buildings is commonly employed. Although, the most preferred rehabilitation approach has been the application of RC infills to the frames, this technique inevitably causes the evacuation of the structure. Therefore, there have been many studies on new occupant-friendly strengthening techniques. The aim of this ...
Use of Class C fly ashes for the stabilization of an expansive soil
Çokça, Erdal (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2001-07-01)
Excessive heave associated with swelling of expansive soils can cause considerable distress to lightweight civil engineering structures. Several methods have been suggested to control this problem. The most commonly used method is addition of stabilizing agents, such as lime or cement to the expansive soil. In this study, high-calcium and low-calcium class C fly ashes from the Soma and Tuncbilek thermal power plants, respectively, in Turkey, were used for stabilization of an expansive soil. An evaluation of...
Use of granulated blast furnace slag and lime in cement-bentonite slurry wall construction
Talefirouz, D.; Çokça, Erdal; Omer, J. (2016-01-01)
This paper describes an experimental investigation on the use of ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) and lime as stabilizers for cement-bentonite (CB) slurry used in constructing vertical barrier walls. The primary objective is to develop a blended material, which can reduce the permeability and also enhance the strength of CB slurry walls with a shortened curing time. Mixtures comprising various proportions of cement, bentonite, GGBFS, and lime were prepared and tested for particle size distributi...
Use of fiber-reinforced polymers in slab-column connection upgrades
Binici, Barış (2005-01-01)
The results of an experimental program on punching shear-strengthening of reinforced concrete slab-column connections using carbon fiber-reinforced polymers (CFRPs) are presented ill this paper. Externally installed CFRP stirrups serving as shear reinforcement were used as a strengthening technique. The effectiveness of different patterns, detailing, and various amounts of CFRP for strengthening were studied. It was found that the proposed method resulted in punching shear capacity increases up to 60% relat...
