An investigation into the failure of neat cement cylinders under independently controlled confining pressure, pore pressure, and axial force
The purpose of this investigation was to study the effect of independently controlled confining pressure and pore pressure on the ultimate axial compressive strength of neat cement cylinders. In trying to achieve this ...
Effect of various water-reducing admixtures on the strength and workability of concrete
At the present time there are no ASTM specifications, and very little information in the ACI Committee 212 Report, concerning water-reducing admixtures. Therefore, the engineer must turn elsewhere for impartial information ...
Photoelastic study of stresses in frames with deep members
The photoelastic technique was employed to investigate the normal stress variation in elastic pinned-end portal rigid frames with deep members. Length to depth ratios were varied for both beams and columns.. Plastic models ...
Strength characteristics of mortars containing dispersed fibrous reinforcement
The purpose of this investigation was to gather and interpret data concerning the effect of adding fibrous reinforcement to mortar during the mixing phase. The fibers used in the investigation may be generally., described ...
