(2015-02-04)As engineers and scientists, we have a host of reasons to understand how structural systems fail. We may be able to improve the safety of buildings during natural disaster by designing more fracture resistant connectors, ...
(2015-04-23)Concrete structures are considered to have higher degree of thermal and fire resistance than steel structures due to their non-combustible nature and low thermal conductivity. Despite concrete structures having high degree ...
(2015-07-10)Material failure pervades the fields of materials science and engineering; it occurs at various scales and in various contexts. Understanding the mechanisms by which a material fails can lead to advancements in the way we ...
(2018-07-05)Viscoelasticity in concrete has been studied since the early 20th century with continuously advancing technology and methods. Currently, calcium-silicate-hydrate (C-S-H) is thought to be the phase responsible for viscoelasticity ...
Origami-inspired structures and materials: analysis and metamaterial properties and seismic design of hybrid masonry structural systems (2015-12-04)This dissertation includes two major sections. The first section presents the research on creating and studying novel classes of origami-inspired metamaterials and structures. The second section deals with seismic design ...
