To provide increased insight regarding the bond behavior of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars, 41 glass FRP, carbon FRP, and steel reinforced concrete beams with unconfined tension lap splices were tested. The test results are analyzed to evaluate the influence of splice length, surface deformation, modulus of elasticity, axial rigidity, and bar casting position on bond strength. Furthermore, the test results are compared with the current design expression recommended by ACI Committee 440 to evaluate its applicability. This comparison clearly indicates that the current design expression is inadequate, and that a new design equation is needed. More importantly, however, this research sheds light on the importance of the axial rigidity of the reinforcement on bond strength. Test results demonstrate that bond strength is linearly related to the axial rigidity of the reinforcement. This finding has future implications regarding the development of improved design expressions and allowing for an improved understanding of bond strength.

Development of high temperature creep resistant aluminium based sand cast magnesium alloys
Yalınız, Emrah; Kalkanlı, Ali; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2018)
The aim of this thesis is to develop alternative sand casting aluminum based magnesium alloys to substitute current sand castable helicopter transmission housing magnesium alloys such as ZE41A and EV31A. AZ91 magnesium alloy has also been preferred for helicopter transmission housing material. However, the lower creep resistance above 120 oC due to the presence of -(Mg17Al12) phase in the microstructure and showing varying mechanical properties in different section thicknesses limit the usage of AZ91 in th...
FREE VIBRATION CHARACTERISTICS OF COMPOSITE SHELLS OF REVOLUTION WITH VARIABLE STIFFNESS COEFFICIENTS
Kayran, Altan (2008-07-09)
In the present study, the effect of initial winding angle, and the starting edge of the winding operation on the variation of the thickness, stiffness coefficients and undamped free vibration characteristics of filament wound composite shells of revolution are investigated. Filaments are assumed to be placed along the geodesic fiber path on the surface of the shell of revolution resulting in the variation of the stiffness coefficients and thickness along the axis of the composite shell of revolution with ge...

In this study, the effect of manufacturing conditions (i.e. compaction pressure, sintering temperature and time) on physical, mechanical and electrochemical properties of Mg alloy discs were investigated. The main motivation of this study was to achieve the manufacturing of porous and micro-surface textured Mg-based biomedical implants with good mechanical and electrochemical properties. A Box-Behnken and Full Factorial experimental design was used in experimental investigations. Relative densities of the f...

An axisymmetric three-dimensional model or temperature distribution in the electrical discharge machining process has been developed using the finite element method to estimate the surface integrity characteristics of AISI H13 tool steel as workpiece. White layer thickness, depth of heat affected zone, and arithmetical mean roughness consisting of the studied surface integrity features on which the effect of process parameters, including pulse on-time and pulse current were investigated. Additionally, the e...
