  • EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON REINFORCED CONCRETE COLUMN INCASED IN PREFABRICATED PERMANENT THIN- WALLED STEEL FORM
    Jae Yuel Oh, Deuck Hang Lee, Jungmin Lee, Kang Su Kim, Sung-Bae Kim    Download Full Text

    Conventional construction methods of reinforced concrete (RC) structures generally require a long construction period and high costs due to many on-site temporary form works. In this study, a prefabricated permanent thin-walled steel form integrated with reinforcement cage (PPSFRC) was developed, and it makes for a fast-built construction by reducing the temporary form works. Axial compression tes...

  • THERMAL ASSESSMENT OF LOW-COST RURAL HOUSING—A CASE STUDY IN THE ECUADORIAN ANDES
    Isabel Mino-Rodriguez, Carlos Naranjo-Mendoza, Ivan Korolija    Download Full Text

    The aim of this research is to assess the indoor thermal performance of rural dwellings in the Ecuadorian highlands through both experimental and numerical analysis. A three-step methodology was applied to conduct the research: (a) field data collection, (b) building thermal model development and calibration, and (c) comparison analysis and assessment of traditional improvement strategies. Qualita...

  • ON THE USE OF VIBRO-COMPRESSED UNITS WITH BIO-NATURAL AGGREGATE
    Mauro Sassu , Linda Giresini, Elisa Bonannini, Mario Lucio Puppio    Download Full Text

    The paper deals with the use of vibro-compressed units with bio-natural components on construction. The proposed mix design of vibrated blocks consist of cork granules and/or hemp shives, with the aim to substitute polymeric elements or expanded clay, together with the use of natural hydraulic lime (NHL) as binder. An experimental campaign is presented, with mechanical tests to evaluate the influe...

  • RELATION BETWEEN COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF BAKED CLAY CUBES AND CYLINDERS
    Nawab Ali Lakho, Muhammad Auchar Zardari    Download Full Text

    Reinforced Baked Clay (RBC) seems to be potential alternative of Reinforced Cement Concrete (RCC) for construction of low cost houses. In order to utilize RBC as a construction material for buildings, it is necessary to understand compression behaviour of baked clay. In this paper, relation between cube crushing strength and cylinder strength of baked clay is presented. For this purpose, clay beam...

  • EVALUATION OF THE PERFORMANCE OF GALVANIZED STEEL SUPPORT IN CONSTRUCTION OF LIVING WALL SYSTEMS
    Fernando B Mainier, Maria Alejandra Rico Perez, Leandro V Pontual, Ana Lucia Torres Seroa da Motta    Download Full Text

    Currently, Living Wall Systems (LWSs) are assuming great importance in the built environment, due to environmental and aesthetic advantages, as well as the use of urban residual space and underutilized surfaces of buildings. However, the maintenance and the durability of the materials used have been a challenge for architects and professionals in the field. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the...

  • KEY CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY OF SHIELD TUNNELING CROSSING UNDERNEATH A RAILWAY
    Jinjin Ge, Ying Xu, Weiwei Cheng    Download Full Text

    The shield tunnel of the Kunming subway crosses beneath the Kun-Shi Railway. Due to the high requirements of railway track for settlement control, this article proposes the following technical measures for controlling the settlement based on the analysis of risks arising from the shield crossing railway: (1) Reinforcing the stratum of the region crossed by the shield in advance to achieve high sta...
