INTERFACE MECHANICS OF LAYERED COMPOSITE BEAM-TYPE STRUCTURES
In this study, improved analytical models are developed to characterize interface behavior of layered composite beam-type structures. The mechanics models of the bonded interface with and without adhesive layer are ...
Explicit Buckling Analysis of Fiber-reinforced Plastic Structural Shapes
In this dissertation, the comprehensive explicit local, distortional, and global (flexural-torsional) buckling analyses of fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) structural shapes are presented. Based on the energy method, the ...
Conceptual and Epistemological Undercurrents of Learning as a Process of Change
In the preparation and education of civil engineers it is essential to both increase student knowledge of the world (conceptual understanding), but also to establish and develop new ways of thinking (epistemology). Both ...
MINERALIZATION, SORPTION AND DESORPTION OF CHLORPYRIFOS IN AQUATICSEDIMENTS AND SOILS
Increased utilization of agrochemicals poses a substantial public health and ecological concern should they be transported to aquatic ecosystems. This dissertation presents a comprehensive literature review and results of ...
HEALTH MONITORING AND DAMAGE IDENTIFICATION OF COMPOSITE STRUCTURES
Structural health monitoring and damage identification method for composite beams and plate-type structures were studied in this dissertation, especially for fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) sandwich beams and deck panels. ...
Residential Building Material Reuse in Sustainable Construction
Social concerns about resource utilization and energy consumption have resulted in an expanding view of our common sustainable future, one that is being shaped by a growing need to improve environmental performance with ...
