Multiscale characterization of chemical-mechanical interactions between polymer fibers and cementitious matrix
Hernandez-Cruz, Daniel; Hargis, Craig W.; Bae, Sungchul; Itty, Pierre A.; Akgül, Çağla; Dominowski, Jolee; Radler, Michael J.; Kilcoyne, David A.; Monteiro, Paulo J. M. (2014-04-01)
Together with a series of mechanical tests, the interactions and potential bonding between polymeric fibers and cementitious materials were studied using scanning transmission X-ray microscopy (STXM) and microtomography (mu CT). Experimental results.showed that these techniques have great potential to characterize the polymer fiber-hydrated cement-paste matrix interface, as well as differentiating the chemistry of the two components of a bi-polymer (hybrid) fiber-the polypropylene core and the ethylene acry...
Multiobjective optimization of a tubular pump to improve the applicable operating head and hydraulic performance
Zhao, Wenlong; Zhang, Jian; Yu, Xiaodong; Zhou, Daqing; Çalamak, Melih (2021-05-01)
Tubular pumps are widely used in irrigation and water conveyance projects. However, the operating head of most of these pumps is low, and only a few studies have focused on the design of an efficient tubular pump with a head more than 5 m, which is common in long-distance water supply projects. This work aims to improve the operating head and efficiency of tubular pumps while maintaining a low shaft power. The multi-objective orthogonal optimization method was used to determine the critical parameters of th...

This paper is devoted to the design and implementation of a multipurpose platform (MPP) for power system monitoring and analysis. This MPP is a novel device, which combines the abilities of a power quality (PQ) analyzer, an event logger, a synchronized phasor measurement unit, and an interarea oscillation identifier, all in one device. The multiple functions of the proposed MPP can serve the needs of the power system operators (SOs) as a wide-area monitoring system to observe the states and stability of the...
Multi-objective performance based design optimization of steel structures
Eser, Hasan; Hasançebi, Oğuzhan; Yakut, Ahmet; Department of Civil Engineering (2021-5)
Seismic performance of structures designed in accordance with conventional force-based design (FBD) codes can vary significantly since (1) estimation and distribution of earthquake loads are based on initial stiffness of members and (2) force reduction factors are based on the rough assumption that all members will yield simultaneously. In recent decades, attempts to predict the seismic performance of structures resulted in the development of several guidelines for evaluation and rehabilitation of existing ...
