Effect of column rectangularity on CFRP-strengthened RC flat plates

Binici, Barış
Ozcebe, Guney
This study presents experimental and analytical research that focused on the behaviour of carbon-fibre-reinforced polymer (CFRP)-strengthened flat-slab specimens for punching shear enhancement. Seven 0.75-scale flat-slab specimens representing interior slab-column connections with different column aspect ratios varying from 1 to 3 were tested. The results revealed that increasing column rectangularity had a detrimental effect on column punching strength of all specimens. A strength increase of at least 30% was obtained for the CFRP retrofitted specimens compared with the companion reference specimen. Three-dimensional finite-element models were successful in providing reasonable estimates of load-deformation behaviour and strains. Based on these results, CFRP strains at failure and the punching failure mechanism are discussed.


Effects of oxidative functionalized and aminosilanized carbon nanotubes on the crystallization behaviour of polyamide-6 nanocomposites
Kaynak, Cevdet (2014-04-01)
The purpose of this study is to investigate effects of oxidative functionalized and aminosilanized carbon nanotubes on the (1) isothermal and (2) non-isothermal crystallization kinetics of polyamide-6 by DSC analyses, and (3) crystal structure of injection molded specimens by XRD analyses. Nanocomposites were compounded by using melt mixing technique via twin screw extrusion. Due to basically very effective heterogeneous nucleation effect, both increasing amount and surface functionalization of carbon nanot...
Influence of nanopatterns on endothelial cell adhesion: Enhanced cell retention under shear stress
Zorlutuna, P.; Rong, Z.; Vadgama, P.; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2009-09-01)
In this study, nanopatterned crosslinked films of collagen Type I were seeded with human microvascular endothelial cells and tested for their suitability for vascular tissue engineering. Since the films will be rolled into tubes with concentric layers of collagen, nutrient transfer through the collagen films is quite crucial. Molecular diffusivity through the collagen films, cell viability, cell proliferation and cell retention following shear stress were studied. Cells were seeded onto linearly nanogrooved...
Effect of swaging on microstructure and tensile properties of W-Ni-Fe alloys
DURLU, NURİ; Caliskan, N. Kaan; Bor, Sakir (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-01)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of swaging on the microstructure and tensile properties of high density two phase alloys 90W-7Ni-3Fe and 93W-4.9Ni-2.1Fe. Samples were liquid phase sintered under hydrogen and argon at 1480 degrees C for 30 min and then 15% cold rotary swaged. Measurement of microstructural parameters in the sintered and swaged samples showed that swaging slightly increased tungsten grain size in the longitudinal direction and slightly decreased tungsten grain size i...
Effect of stacking sequence on free vibration frequencies of laminated composite circular cylindrical shells
Kayran, Altan (SAGE Publications, 1999-05-01)
This study compares the effect of stacking sequence on natural frequencies of cylindrical shells for different end conditions and vibration modes. For this purpose, an analysis of the natural frequencies of laminated composite cylindrical shells is carried out using linear Reissner shell theory with the transverse shear deformation effects taken into account. The governing equations for the free vibration of laminated cylindrical shells are reduced to 10 first-order differential equations involving 10 unkno...

The present study investigates the serious effects of rotation of material axes on the free dynamic response of composite plates or panels with "Bonded Double Doubler Mint Systems". The "Plate Adherends" and the "Upper and Lower Doubler Plates" are connected through the relatively very thin adhesive layers. The "Bonded Double Doubler Joint System" is considered in taans of the "System. 1" and the "System.2". In the "System. 1", the material directions of "Plate Adherends" are rotated 90(0) (about z-axis) wh...
