Cyclic performance of steel and composite bracing members
This paper describes an experimental study on the response of hollow and filled steel members to monotonic and cyclic axial loading. Monotonic tests were first performed on short specimens to establish their compressive ...
Performance of novel media in stratified filters to remove organic carbon from lake water
(IWA Publishing, 2016-08-15)
Disinfection by-products (DBPs) are an ever-increasing occurrence in water networks, particularly those which abstract water from peatland areas. Although much research has been carried out to discover novel methods to ...
The creation of a living laboratory for structural engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway
The recently completed New Engineering Building (NEB) at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) is a new state of the art academic facility on the university's north campus. The building unites all five ...
An analytical approach for the prediction of single pile and pile group behaviour in clay
In this paper, the 't-z method' is employed to describe the nonlinear behaviour of a single pile and is used to obtain simplified predictions of pile group behaviour by considering the interaction between two-piles in ...
Prediction of pile settlement using artificial neural networks based on standard penetration test data
In recent years artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been applied to many geotechnical engineering problems with some degree of success. With respect to the design of pile foundations, accurate prediction of pile settlement ...
An improved experimental test set-up to study the performance of granular columns
(ASTM International, 2006-03)
This paper describes an innovative design of a newly developed large test setup for testing the performance of footings supported on soft clay reinforced with granular columns. This advanced testing method is used to examine ...
Oxidation behaviour of particle reinforced MoSi2 composites at temperatures up to 1700 °C, Part I: Literature Review
In the first part of this paper the results of a literature review are presented. An overview of the oxidation behaviour in air and in combustion environments of both pure MoSi2 and MoSi2 composites in the temperature range ...
Discussion: Interaction factor for large pile groups
(ICE Publishing, 2016-09-27)
The authors present an interesting paper on the use of the interaction factor method (IFM) for settlement analysis of large pile groups.
The past, present and future in scaffold-based tendon treatments
Tendon injuries represent a significant clinical burden on healthcare systems worldwide. As the human population ages and the life expectancy increases, tendon injuries will become more prevalent especially among young ...
The Impact of Biochar Addition on Nutrient Leaching and Soil Properties from Tillage Soil Amended with Pig Manure
The application of pig manure to a tillage soil can result in pollution of surface and groundwater bodies. Countries in the European Union are required to comply with the Water Framework Directive, which states that all ...
