Cold Joints in Concrete Beams

Non-Destructive Evaluation of Cold Joints in Concrete

This technical note briefly discusses non-destructive evaluation of cold joints in concrete structures. We will review how structural engineers and quality control laboratories can utilize NDT methods to assess the quality and integrity of concrete on or around the cold joint. What is Cold Joint in Concrete? Cold joints in concrete primarily happen when there Read more about Non-Destructive Evaluation of Cold Joints in Concrete[…]

Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls

The chapter on seismic behavior and retrofit of existing reinforced concrete shear walls is still wide open. Researchers and engineers around the world are trying hard to develop new materials and innovative techniques for seismic upgrade of concrete structures. But why is this so important? Reinforced concrete shear walls have long been recognized as suitable Read more about Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls[…]
