  • The Basics of Slope Stability Analysis for Geosynthetics

    Slope stability analysis is vital to preventing slope failures in a variety of engineering applications including landfill design, roads, dams and embankments, to name a few. Proper analysis anticipates both natural and manmade slopes and failure of foundations and retaining walls. This blog covers the necessity of slope stability analysis, how to conduct the analysis and the role of ...

  • Seismic performance of polymer modified concretes in flexure–modelling

    Considerable research has been carried out in the recent years in the development of models to simulate the inelastic responses of reinforced concrete elements. The enhancement of ductility and the post–peak behaviour are of special interest for the seismic design of structures. Polymer modified fibre concretes are found to be ideal for seismic application with its inherent structural ...

  • A simulation tool for life cycle costing of water supply infrastructure in seismically active zones

    In the face of increased development, civil infrastructure systems are increasingly vulnerable to catastrophic failures as a result of ageing, overuse and poor planning when disasters such as earthquakes strike. Water supply systems are among the most vulnerable infrastructure systems and arguably, the most essential for human existence. Investment decisions regarding the retrofitting or ...

  • Response spectrum dynamic analysis on structural parameters of Zhengzhou International Conference Exhibition Center

    In this paper, a rectangular unit of steel roof in Zhenghou International Conference Exhibition Center is investigated about the effects of different structural parameters on its dynamic performances with ANSYS software. Response spectrum method is adopted to calculate the natural vibration characteristics, the dynamic displacements, the support reactions, the ratio of the maximum dynamic forces ...

  • Energy dissipation of aluminium panel yielding dampers

    In this paper, an innovative type of yielding damper was introduced having aluminium panels and stiffened using stiffeners. Dampers are the first elements in structures which respond to seismic forces, prevent from destructive damage to other main elements of structure and reduce the costs related to structural improvement. A comprehensive numerical study was utilised in this research. The ...

  • UncerTZ Consortium - Time to Depth Conversion Evolved

    Near the end of 2015 Geovariances committed itself into building a new, sophisticated tool for Time to Depth conversion in Reservoir Characterization. The challenges petitioned by the consortium partners were not easy. It included features such as: more choices in conversion (and less of a “black box”), uncertainty characterization, inclusion of faults in the conversion procedure, ...

  • GPR: a new tool for structural health monitoring of infrastructure

    Abstract Recent developments in acquisition methodology, data acquisition systems, post-processing software, and the availability of user friendly high-frequency antennas have enabled the GPR user to generate accurate three dimensional images of the interior of concrete structures. Four case studies are discussed with emphasis on output that is readily understood by the ...
