Integral Abutment-Backfill Behavior on Sand Soil-Pushover Analysis Approach
Dicleli, Murat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2005-05-01)
This paper presents a study on the behavior of the abutment-backfill system under positive thermal variation in integral bridges built on sand. A structural model of a typical integral bridge is built, considering the nonlinear behavior of the piles and soil-bridge interaction effects. Static pushover analyses of the bridge are conducted to study the effect of various geometric, structural, and geotechnical parameters on the performance of the abutment-backfill system under positive thermal variations. The ...
Punching shear strengthening of flat-slabs with CFRP dowels
ERDOĞAN, HAKAN; Binici, Barış; Ozcebe, G. (Thomas Telford Ltd., 2010-07-01)
An economical and easy-to-install strengthening method to enhance the punching shear capacity of slab-column connections in existing deficient flat-plate structures is presented in this study. Seven specimens representing typical interior slab-column connections were tested and experimental results are reported in detail. The strengthening scheme employs the use of in-house fabricated carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) dowels placed around the column stubs in different numbers and arrangements as vertic...
Hysteretic Shear Model for Reinforced Concrete Members
Özcebe, Güney; Saatçioğlu, Murat (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 1989-1)
A hysteretic model is proposed for shear response of reinforced concrete members subjected to shear force and bending moment reversals. The model consists of a primary shear force‐shear displacement curve and unloading and reloading branches under cyclic loading. The primary curve is the envelope curve for the hysteretic relationship, and can be considered the same as the force displacement relationship under monotonic loading up to the onset of strength decay. A primary curve established by any acceptable ...
Effect of Unsaturated Soil Properties on the Intensity-Duration Threshold for Rainfall Triggered Landslides
Kenanoğlu, Melih Birhan; Ahmadi-Adli, Mohammad; Toker, Nabi Kartal; Huvaj Sarıhan, Nejan (Teknik Dergi, 2019-03-01)
Rainfall triggered landslides are one of the most common natural hazards in many countries throughout the world, as well as in Turkey. This study investigates the effect of unsaturated soil properties on landslide-triggering rainfall intensity-duration threshold. In addition to the time to failure, the suction (negative pore water pressure) distribution in the slope, the shape and depth of the failure surface are also evaluated. Properties of soil-water characteristic curve which affect the distribution of ...
Strength and fracture properties of roller compacted concrete (RCC) prepared by an in-situ compaction procedure
ŞENGÜN, EMİN; Aleessa Alam, Burhan; Shabani, R.; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
© 2020 Elsevier LtdThe use of roller compacted concrete (RCC) technology in pavement applications has been steadily increasing owing to its economical as well as practical advantages. Past literature studies on RCC mixtures, focused mainly on the effects of RCC mixtures on their strength and durability properties, and there is a lack in the fracture properties. In this experimental study, a total of seven different RCC mixtures were designed with four different binder ratios ranging from 200 kg/m3 to 600 kg...
