Reinforced Concrete with FRP Bars: Mechanics and Design by Antonio Nanni

By Antonio Nanni

Corrosion-resistant, electromagnetic obvious and light-weight fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs) are permitted as legitimate choices to metal in concrete reinforcement. Reinforced Concrete with FRP Bars: Mechanics and Design, a technical advisor in keeping with the authors’ greater than 30 years of collective event, offers ideas, algorithms, and sensible examples.

Well-illustrated with case reports on flexural and column-type individuals, the booklet covers inner, non-prestressed FRP reinforcement. It assumes a few familiarity with bolstered concrete, and excludes prestressing and near-surface fixed reinforcement purposes. The textual content discusses FRP fabrics houses, and addresses trying out and qc, sturdiness, and serviceability. It offers a historic evaluation, and emphasizes the ACI technical literature in addition to different learn worldwide.

  • Includes a proof of the main actual mechanical houses of FRP bars and their creation methods
  • Provides algorithms that govern layout and detailing, together with a brand new formula for using FRP bars in columns
  • Offers a justification for the advance of energy relief elements according to reliability considerations
  • Uses a –story construction solved in Mathcad® that may develop into a template for genuine projects

This e-book is especially meant for practitioners and makes a speciality of the basics of functionality and layout of concrete contributors with FRP reinforcement and reinforcement detailing. Graduate scholars and researchers can use it as a invaluable source.

Antonio Nanni is a professor on the college of Miami and the college of Naples Federico II. Antonio De Luca and Hany Zadeh are advisor layout engineers.

Group Search Optimization for Applications in Structural by Lijuan Li, Feng Liu

By Lijuan Li, Feng Liu

Civil engineering buildings resembling structures, bridges, stadiums, and offshore buildings play an import position in our lifestyle. although, developing those constructions calls for plenty of funds. hence, tips on how to cost-efficiently layout constructions gratifying all required layout constraints is a vital issue to structural engineers. characteristically, mathematical gradient-based optimum recommendations were utilized to the layout of optimum constructions. whereas, many sensible engineering optimum difficulties are very complicated and tough to unravel via conventional process. some time past few many years, swarm intelligence algorithms, which have been encouraged via the social behaviour of normal animals akin to fish education and chook flocking, have been built simply because they don't require traditional mathematical assumptions and hence own higher worldwide seek talents than the normal optimization algorithms and feature attracted increasingly more realization. those clever established algorithms are very compatible for non-stop and discrete layout variable difficulties comparable to ready-made structural participants and feature been vigorously utilized to numerous structural layout difficulties and got reliable effects. This booklet gathers the authors’ most modern learn paintings similar with particle swarm optimizer set of rules and crew seek optimizer set of rules in addition to their software to structural optimum layout. The readers can comprehend the total spectrum of the algorithms and practice the algorithms to their very own examine problems.
