Experimentally informed multi-scale modelling of mechanical properties of quasi-brittle nuclear graphite

Dear all,

Our group has just published a paper on experimentally-informed multi-scalle modelling of nuclear graphite in the journal of Engineering Fracture Mechanics. It can be of interest to anyone working on quasi-brittle fracture and materials such as graphite, concrete, rock, shale, or similar. It can be downloaded at:http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0013794415007080

RILEM Multi-scale Modelling Course for Concrete (MMC2)

The RILEM Multi-scale Modelling Course for Concrete (MMC2) provides the opportunity for participants to become familiar with modelling cementitious materials at four different levels of detail. Different ways of schematization and numerical approaches are considered to simulate the chemical, physical and mechanical behaviour of cementitious materials.

Micromechanical Study of the Interface Properties in Concrete Repair Systems

Hi all,

We've recently published a paper on

Micromechanical Study of the Interface Properties in Concrete Repair Systems

It deals with nanoindentation and numerical simulation of the interface zone in concrete repair systems.

Greetings

Lattice Modeling of Chloride Diffusion in Sound and Cracked Concrete

Our paper titled "Lattice modeling of chloride diffusion in sound and cracked concrete" has been accepted for publication by Cement and Concrete Composites journal. It deals with numerical modeling of chloride transport coupled with fracture. Registered subscribers can download the paper at http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0958946513000899 .

Cracking of the concrete cover due to reinforcement corrosion

Dear all,

 Our paper titled "Cracking of the concrete cover due to reinforcement corrosion: A two-dimensional lattice model study"
 has just been published in Construction and Building Materials. It deals with numerical modelling of cracking of the concrete cover as a consequence of reinforcement corrosion, based on the Delft lattice model framework. Registered subscribers can download the article at: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0950061813002730

Traffic-induced vibrations of frame structures

A paper titled "Traffic-induced vibrations of frame structures" (Marija Nefovska Danilovic, Mira Petronijevic, Branko Šavija), related to Branko Šavija's diploma thesis work, has been published in the Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering.

Abstract:

Durability of Reinforced concrete from Composition to Protection

The 6th International PhD Student Workshop on Durability of Reinforced
Concrete will be held in Delft, The Netherlands, during July 4 and 5,
2013, hosted by TUDelft. After a series of successful workshops, most
recently in Espoo (2012), Madrid (2010) and Guimarães (2009), IPSW2013
will be held under the auspices of RILEM EAC (Educational Activities
Committee), aiming to bring together young researchers in the field of
durability of concrete.

Proceedings

Dear all,

 

Proceedings of the V International PhD workshop dealing with durability of concrete, which was held in Finland in February, have been published. The publication is available for free download at:  http://www.vtt.fi/inf/pdf/technology/2012/T65.pdf . Many interesting and innovative topic, dealing both with experimental and numerical research of concrete durability, are presented.
