    Abstract: Hybrid fiber reinforcement with both macro and micro steel fibers in the concrete matrix is applied in order to evaluate its effectiveness for crack arresting. One of the main objectives of this research is to establish a crack-free high performance concrete. In severe conditions, which may require high water tightness, such as a storage structure ...

    Abstract: The design of complicated structures which, under accidental actions, have to fulfill a certain performance level, has been a scientific challenge with social and economic implications, particularly in the field of earthquake engineering. Experimental testing on structures would shed light to the deriving issues, however the full-scaling requiremen... Show More
