Maturity Method for In-Place Strength Measurement

In this article, we will investigate the use of maturity method for in-place strength measurement. We will review the concept behind the maturity technique, and the most common practices. Later, we will describe the benefits and limitations of this method for in-place strength prediction. In the last part of this article, we will review and examine some of the existing technologies for using the maturity technique. Concrete Strength Concrete (compressive) strength… Read More »Maturity Method for In-Place Strength Measurement

Structural Effects of Corrosion

Structural Effects of Corrosion

You may think that corrosion in structures is a just a durability-related issue in the first glance. Well, that is far from the truth. In fact, corrosion can directly affect mechanical and structural properties of components. Corrosion can affect the global response of the structure. In this article, we will review some of the main structural effects of corrosion on steel structures and reinforced concrete structures. Before we begin, let’s… Read More »Structural Effects of Corrosion
