Seismic retrofit of full-scale substandard extended rectangular RC columns through CFRP jacketing: test results and design recommendations
(Journal of Composites for Construction, 2019)
Brittle behavior of substandard columns during earthquakes is among the most common reasons of structural failures. Because capacity design principles and ductile detailing concepts have not been properly adopted during ...
Artificial neural network model to predict the compressive strength of eco-friendly geopolymer concrete incorporating silica fume and natural zeolite
(Journal of Cleaner Production, 2020)
The growing concern about global climate change and its adverse impacts on societies is putting severe pressure on the construction industry as one of the largest producers of greenhouse gases. Given the environmental ...
On the seismic collapse capacity of optimally designed steel braced frames
(Engineering with Computers, 2020)
The main purpose of this study is to respond to an important question in the field of structural engineering: is the seismic collapse capacity of optimally designed concentrically steel braced frames acceptable or not? The ...
Failure mechanisms and cracking performance of T-shaped SCC beam-column connections at top floor: test results and FE modeling
In recent decades, self-compacting concrete (SCC) has gradually gained popularity based on its unique workability without any internal and external vibration. SCC development must ensure an acceptable level of balance ...
A hybrid of firefly and biogeography-based optimization algorithms for optimal design of steel frames
(Arabian Journal for Science and Engineering, 2020)
The principle purpose of the current study is to hybridize firefly algorithm (FA) as a nature-inspired meta-heuristic developed based on the flashing patterns and biogeography-based optimization (BBO) to present a qualified ...
