FRP Composites in Civil Engineering - CICE 2004: Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on FRP Composites in Civil Engineering - CICE 2004, 8-10 December 2004, Adelaide, Australia

The diversity of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) purposes in new building, and within the retrofitting of present civil engineering infrastructure, is constant to develop all over the world. moreover, this development is being matched by advancing study into all elements of research and layout. the second one foreign convention on FRP Composites in Civil Engineering (CICE 2004) supplied a global discussion board for the clinical neighborhood to interchange rules and increase destiny instructions during this quickly constructing box.

Structural Identification and Damage Detection using Genetic Algorithms: Structures and Infrastructures Book Series, Vol. 6

Speedy advances in computational equipment and laptop functions have resulted in a brand new new release of structural identity options. powerful and effective tools have effectively been constructed at the foundation of genetic algorithms (GA). This quantity provides the advance of a unique GA-based identity method that includes numerous helpful positive factors in comparison to past equipment.

Tensile Membrane Structures

This normal presents minimal standards for the layout and function of membrane-covered cable and inflexible member buildings, together with body buildings, jointly referred to as tensile membrane buildings. It comprises everlasting and transitority constructions. the necessities of this commonplace practice no matter if the tensile membrane constitution is autonomous of or connected to a different constitution.

Example text

It is a clay product, fired twice, once with and once without a glaze. It is sometimes provided as large glazed tiles. The term terra-cotta is normally used in connection with un-glazed products. There are no codified guidelines for design but some guidance is given in Mitchell's Advanced building construction and McKay's Building construction volume 4. There is no British Standard specifically covering this material but some guidance concerning maintenance is given in BS 6270 Part 1. Faience is made in a range of colours including white, cream, rich red, pink, buff and occasionally green/grey.

Boards will normally be fixed onto timber battens with extruded plastic comer or joint profiles. Most boards are highly resistant to weather conditions. When installing high stability boards, compatibility with building movement and movement joints is particularly important. There is no comprehensive guidance available for this type of cladding. Individual British Standards, where they exist, are listed in Appendix B. Advice should also be sought from specialist manufacturers. 2 Concrete Precast reinforced concrete panels These are usually of normally reinforced concrete but may be prestressed.

Further guidance on the use of renders may be found in Construction Materials Reference Book, Chapter 21. (ed. D. K. g. GRC. Design of slated facades should be in accordance with good construction practice. Key points to observe include: • fixing nails to be non-ferrous • correct lap length to slates • treatment of battens with preservative 36 Fig. 7 Typical metal panel detail substrate to be adequate to support battens • substrate to be protected by damp proof membrane. Some synthetic slates have received a British Board of Agrement Certificate.
