Strength evaluation of the Prussian vaults made from brick aggregate concrete

Romuald Orlovich, Rafal Nowak, Nikolai Vatin & Vladimir Bespalov
The behavior of Prussian vaults of brick aggregate concrete differs both from the behavior of brick vaults and classical flat slabs. Such vaults are particularly susceptible to physical damage and deterioration. To determine the real bearing capacity of the vaults, the authors not only performed the in-situ determination on several sections with deflection control, but also numerical simulations of the multi-span system of Prussian vaults in the program complex Abaqus. Moreover, experimental comparisons between damaged...

Organizational and technological reliability of the construction process

Vadim Kabanov
Construction projects of buildings and structures, as well as plans of construction and installation works are often subjected to fair criticism from the Pro-producers of the work. Such criticism is that the calculated cost value and long lasting-STI CMP does not take into account the specificity of real contractors. To address these criticisms and proposals were developed for the assessment of such intensity values of SMR production, which most realistically take into account the actual...

Cold-formed RHS T joints with initial geometrical imperfections

Marsel Garifullin, Maria Bronzova, Markku Heinisuo, Kristo Mela & Sami Pajunen
Generally, numerical simulations of structures are carried out in such a way as to most accurately repeat their real behavior. The current rules for finite element modeling of tubular joints oblige scientists and engineers to construct their numerical models considering initial imperfections. However, not all joints are sensitive to initial imperfections. Often consideration of initial imperfections brings no reasonable improvements in the accuracy of results, but severely complicates numerical simulations. In such cases, the effect...
