Machine Learning Algorithms in Civil Structural Health

Applications of Machine Learning (ML) algorithms in Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) have become of great interest in recent years owing to their superior ability to detect damage and deficiencies in civil engineering structures. With the advent of the Internet of Things, big data and the colossal and complex backlog of aging civil infrastructure assets, such applications will increase very

STRUCTURE magazine | Ensuring Quality Concrete

Hot and cold weather concrete placement procedures dictate to keep concrete in a specific temperature range during curing operations. A simple way to monitor these temperature changes is by using a calibrated maximum-minimum thermometer. Thermometers are available with a probe on one end that can be tucked under a blanket or in the concrete form.

Tips for Curing Concrete in Cold Weather - The Spruce

Concrete poured and placed in cold weather has a much slower setting and curing time, so bleeding will also start later than expected. Be prepared to handle more bleed water than is typical in regular concrete placement. While the concrete is being cured, verify the concrete

Mat Foundation Concrete Placement - Eng-Tips

Some specifications say that concrete is to be placed without causing separation. If you want to be more specific you could say concrete should not fall more than 5'. I disagree with asixth. Placing a thick mat in layers might work if done quickly enough, but is not practical for 2670 CY of concrete.

How to Control Dust at a Construction Site

Tackifiers and Soil Stabilizers . This dust control method can create a fiber-to-seed-to-soil bond (without hardening) that reduces the need for re-seeding and minimizes soil erosion. During a wetting event, the polymer material absorbs water, which allows the tackifier to go back into solution.

The Deep Mixing Method: Bearing Capacity Studies

Nowadays, several techniques are employed to improve the problem of carrying out construction in soft soils by increasing the strength of the soil foundation and reducing the settlement of the soil. Among these stabilizing techniques, the deep mixing method is regarded as the most popular. The deep mixing method is a soil modification method where the soil is mixed in situ with stabilizing

What causes a concrete pavement to crack? - ACPA

Theoretical and practical studies of concrete pavement have determined that the optimal spacing between joints depends on the slab thickness, subbase stiffness, and concrete strength. Most state agencies specify transverse contraction joints in plain pavement at an interval between 4.5 and 6.1 m (15 and 20 ft.) (7).
