    Effect of Water-Cement Ratio on Plastic Shrinkage Cracking in Self-Compacting Concrete2017Ingår i: Proceedings of the 23rd Nordic Concrete Research Symposium, Oslo, Norway: Nordic Concrete Federation , 2017Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Plastic shrinkage cracking is a mechanical phenomenon that occurs in the first few hours after casting the concrete in its mould. It is commonly believed that rapid and excessive moisture loss of the fresh concrete, mainly due to evaporation, plays a decisive role in the early age shrinkage. However, it is not always possible to justify all the plastic shrinkage incidents based on water evaporation solely. Instead, it seems that and interconnected correlation between evaporation, capillary pressure and hydration rate may offer better explanation. In this paper effect of water-cement (w/c) ratio on plastic shrinkage cracking of self-compacting concrete (SCC) is investigates. Four recipes with different w/c ratios (0.38, 0.45, 0.55 and 0.67) are tested by using Ring test method (NT BUILD 433). During the experiments evaporation, capillary pressure and internal temperature of the specimens were recorded from 60 minutes after casting up to 18 hours, at which the length and width of the cracks were measured. The results show lower risk of cracking when w/c ratio is between 0.45 to 0.55. However, the specimens with 0.38 and 0.67 w/c ratio experienced higher cracking tendency, especially the latter, in which severe cracking was observed.

    Plastic Shrinkage Cracking in Concrete: Influence of Test Methods2017Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Plastic shrinkage cracking can become problematic especially in concrete elements with high surface to volume ratio such as slabs and pavements. In this paper two test methods commonly used when studying the phenomenon have been evaluated; ring test method (NORDTEST-method NT Build 433) developed in NTNU/SINTEF by Johansen and Dahl in order to study the effect of different materials and constituents on the cracking tendency at macro-level, and ASTM C 1579, mainly designed in order to map the influence of fibres. During this research, influence of coarse aggregate content on plastic shrinkage cracking of self-compacting concrete (SCC) was studied. Preliminary results show same tendencies with the two methods i.e. a lower plastic shrinkage tendency with higher amount of coarse aggregates.

    Effect of admixtures on the mechanism of plastic shrinkage cracking in self-compacting concreteIngår i: Cement and Concrete Composites, ISSN 09589465Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The main reason for plastic shrinkage cracking is believed to be excessive moisture loss, mainly due to evaporation. This research studies the effect of retarder, accelerator, stabilizer, air-entraining agent (AEA) and shrinkage reducing admixture (SRA) on plastic shrinkage cracking in self-compacting concrete (SCC). The main objective is to fill the knowledge gap regarding the effect of admixtures on the volumetric shrinkage of SCC. During the research, a modified ASTM C 1579 mould and a ring test set-up was used to measure the effect of the admixtures on the early age cracking.

    The results show that AEA and SRA were highly effective in reducing the cracking tendency, while accelerator and retarder increased it. The impact of admixtures on the cracking mechanism is identified, by comparing the respective vertical and horizontal deformations. It was observed that crack-free concretes had moderate settlement and horizontal shrinkage, while the cracked specimens exhibited significant deformation either vertically or horizontally.

    Effect of Steel Fibres Extracted from Recycled Tyres on Plastic Shrinkage Cracking of Self-Compacting ConcreteIngår i: Cement and Concrete Composites, ISSN 09589465Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper explains the plastic shrinkage and the cracking process of fibre reinforce concretes, based on the settlement, tensile strength, and the mass loss, i.e. weight of the evaporated water. The effect of a type of steel fibres (known as RTSF), obtained through recycling end-of-life tyres, on plastic shrinkage cracking of fresh self-compacting concrete has been investigated. The vertical and the horizontal deformations of the concretes in addition to the amount of the evaporated water have been measured in an unrestrained mould. Another specimen was cast in a restrained mould, from which the crack area was calculated. The outcomes are then compared with the performance of a commercially available hooked steel fibre (HSF). During the experiments, mixtures containing 2.5, 5 and 10 kg/m3 of RTSF or 5 and 7.5 kg/m3 of HSF have been studied. The results show that RTSF and HSF have an almost similar impact on reducing the crack area, especially with 5 kg/m3 of fibres.

    Plastic Shrinkage Cracking of Self-compacting Concrete: Influence of Capillary Pressure and Dormant Period2019Ingår i: Nordic Concrete Research, ISSN 0800-6377, Vol. 60, nr 1, s. 67-88Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This research investigates the effect of capillary pressure and the length of the hydration dormant period on the plastic shrinkage cracking tendency of SCC by studying specimens produced with different w/c ratios, cement types and SP dosages.

    The results show, that the cracking tendency of SCC was the lowest in case of w/c ratio between 0.45 and 0.55, finer rapid hardening cement and lower dosage of SP. The dormant period was prolonged by increasing the w/c ratio, using coarser cement and higher SP dosage. It was concluded that the cracking tendency of concrete is a function of the capillary pressure build-up rate and the length of the dormant period.

    The Severity of Plastic Shrinkage Cracking in Concrete: A New Model2019Ingår i: Magazine of Concrete Research, ISSN 0024-9831, E-ISSN 1751-763XArtikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Plastic shrinkage cracking in concrete is mainly a physical process, in which chemical reactions between cement and water do not play a decisive role. It is commonly believed that rapid and excessive moisture loss, due to evaporation is the primary cause of the phenomenon. This paper presents a new model to estimate the severity of plastic shrinkage cracking, based on the initial setting time and the amount of the evaporated water from within the concrete bulk. A number of experiments were performed under controlled ambient conditions, during which the water-cement ratio, cement type, and the dosage of superplasticizer were altered. The results, alongside those reported by other researchers, were utilized to check the validity of the proposed model. According to the outcomes, the model could predict the cracking severity of the tested concretes with a relative precision.

    PLASTIC SHRINKAGE CRAKING IN SELF-COMPACTING CONCRETE: A PARAMETRIC STUDY2016Ingår i: International RILEM conference on Materials, Systems and Structures in Civil Engineering 2016 (MSSCE 2016): Service Life of Cement-Based Materials and Structures / [ed] Miguel Azenha; Ivan Gabrijel; Dirk Schlicke; Terje Kanstad; Ole Mejhede Jensen, Paris, France: Rilem publications, 2016, Vol. 2, s. 609-619Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Plastic shrinkage cracking, often the first type of cracks occurring even before initial setting, causes enormous expenses for the building industry annually. The main reason behind the phenomenon is believed to be rapid and excessive surface water evaporation of the concrete element in the plastic stage which in turn leads to the so-called plastic or capillary shrinkage. These cracks mainly occur in horizontal concrete elements with large surface to volume ratio (such as slabs, pavements, etc.). This paper reports results from experiments performed, using ring test method (NORDTEST-method NT Build 433). During the experiments, influence of water-cement (w/c) ratio, cement type, coarse aggregate content and super plasticizer dosage was investigated. Moreover, effort was made to explain the difference in cracking tendency of different concretes based on water evaporation rate and capillary pressure. It seems that various parameters have different influences on the cracking tendency, the evaporation rate, as well as the hydration rate and capillary pressure. Although, capillary pressure is local and its maximum value differs in different locations, it seems that its development rate, especially in the first few hours, is almost identical everywhere in the specimen. This may be used as a plastic shrinkage indicator.

    Timber under Real Fire Conditions: the Influence of Oxygen Content and Gas Velocity on the Charring Behavior2016Ingår i: Structures in Fire 2016: Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference - June 8-10, 2016, Princeton University / [ed] Garlock, Maria E. Moreyra; Kodur, Venkatesh K. R., Lancaster: DEStech Publications , 2016, s. 692-699Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    As for any building material, verification of fire resistance is mandatory for separating and loadbearing timber members. While non-standard fire design for steel members has long tradition, the corresponding possibilities for timber members are limited. Reasons for this can be found in the degree of complexity of the material and the limited research done in the field. This paper summarizes selected outcomes of tests investigating the influences on the charring behavior varying the oxygen content and the gas velocity. Besides the charring rate the char layer depth was the focus of this study to investigate char contraction (consumption of the char layer). In general, measurements are in line with previous results reported in literature. Results show that charring is predominantly depending on the fire compartment temperature. Results show further that for gas oxygen contents below 15 percent the gas velocity has no influence on the charring. However, at higher oxygen rates char contraction was observed affecting the protective function of the char layer. Thus, the charring and the temperature distribution was affected and the residual cross-section was decreased. In fully developed fires increased charring due to char contraction may not be observed due to the low oxygen contents. Contrary, in travelling fires or in the decay phase char contraction may be considered. This may have significant impact to Performance Based Design using non-standard temperature fire curves where the complete fire duration has to be taken into account.

    Timber under Real Fire Conditions: the influence of oxygen content and gas velocity on the charring behavior2018Ingår i: Journal of Structural Fire Engineering, ISSN 2040-2317, E-ISSN 2040-2325, Vol. 9, nr 3, s. 222-236Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the influencing factors on the charring behaviour of timber, the char layer and the charring depth in non-standard fires.

    Design/methodology/approach

    This paper summarizes outcomes of tests, investigating the influences on the charring behavior of timber by varying the oxygen content and the gas velocity in the compartment. Results show that charring is depending on the fire compartment temperature, but results show further that at higher oxygen flow, char contraction was observed affecting the protective function of the char layer.

    Findings

    In particular, in the cooling phase, char contraction should be considered which may have a significant impact on performance-based design using non-standard temperature fire curves where the complete fire history including the cooling phase has to be taken into account.

    Originality/value

    Up to now, some research on non-standard fire exposed timber member has been performed, mainly based on standard fire resistance tests where boundary conditions as gas flow and oxygen content especially in the decay phase are not measured or documented. The approach presented in this paper is the first documented fire tests with timber documenting the data required.

    Shear Capacity of a RC Bridge Deck Slab: Comparison between Multilevel Assessment and Field Test2018Ingår i: Journal of Structural Engineering, ISSN 0733-9445, E-ISSN 1943-541X, Vol. 144, nr 7, artikel-id 04018081Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    For reinforced concrete (RC) slabs without shear reinforcement, shear and punching can be the governing failure mode at the ultimate limit state if subjected to large concentrated loads. Shear and punching of RC slabs without shear reinforcement has been a challenging problem in assessment based on current standards. To examine a previously developed enhanced analysis approach, this study was conducted by applying a multilevel assessment strategy to a 55-year old RC bridge deck slab subjected to concentrated loads near the main girder in a field failure test. This strategy clearly provides the engineering community a framework for using successively improved structural analysis methods for enhanced assessment in a straightforward manner. The differences between analysis methods at different levels of assessment were discussed regarding one-way shear and punching shear behavior of the slab. The influences of parameters, such as boundary conditions, location of concentrated loads, and shear force distribution, were investigated.

    Validation data for room fire models: Experimantal background2016Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    A series of room fire tests for enclosures with different wall materials have been conducted for the purpose of supplying validation data for enclosure fire models. The wall materials are varied between light weight concrete, mineral wool insulation, bare 3 mm steel, and finally insulated steel. All tests used a propane gas burner with a well-defined mass flux as a fire source. Temperatures of thermocouples and plate thermometers were measured as well as oxygen concentrations in the opening. For some tests the heat release rate (by oxygen consumption calorimetry) as well as O2, CO2 and CO concentrations were measured in addition.This report describes the instrumentation, fire scenarios, enclosure materials, and results from all the tests. All results are readily available as spreadsheet data for downloading. The report also contains short description showing the influence of different factors such as wall materials, heat release rates and burner placements.

    Framgångsfaktorer för räddningstjänstens operativa arbete vid brand i bostad2017Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (kandidatexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Bränder som innefattar många drabbade eller ger stor förstörelse är oftast de som blir mest omtalade. Efter händelsen sker ett omfattande utredningsarbete för att förelägga hur det som inte fick hända kunde ske. Utredningen beskriver även räddningstjänstens val av metod och taktik för att kunna nyttja detta för framtida insatser. Vad som däremot lätt glöms bort är de insatser då räddningstjänstens arbete får god effekt och resulterar i att olyckans skada begränsas.

    Detta examensarbete kommer beröra just dessa händelser av brand i bostad, då räddningstjänstens arbete får den effekt som eftersträvas, det vill säga arbetet har lett till en lyckad insats. Arbetet kommer därefter belysa vilka faktorer som legat till grund för att insatsen blivit lyckad, så kallade framgångsfaktorer.

    Syftet med arbetet är att identifiera framgångsfaktorer vid lyckade insatser för brand i bostad. Framgångsfaktorerna ska ligga till grund för att skapa ett utvecklingsunderlag berörande metod- och taktikval inom räddningstjänsten. För att göra detta krävs en tydlig definition av innebörden av en lyckad insats. Utifrån syftet har följande frågeställningar formulerats: Vad innebär att en insats är lyckad? Vad innebär framgångsfaktorer för operativa insatser vid brand i bostad? Vilka framgångsfaktorer kan identifieras inom de utvalda insatserna och hur kan de identifieras, finns det gemensamma? Hur kan framgångsfaktorer nyttjas?

    Metoderna som tillämpats är kvalitativa intervjuer och granskning av bland annat händelserapporter från utvalda insatser av brand i bostad. Ansvarigt befäl för samtliga händelser tillfrågades att delta som respondenter till intervjustudien. Intervjufrågorna är framtagna med avsikt att besvara rapportens tre frågeställningar. Arbetet ger ett resultat som beskriver följande framgångsfaktorer för brand i bostad:

    • Riktig och tillräcklig information i ett tidigt skede
    • Ett snabbt motiverat agerande för att direkt slå ner branden
    • Yttre faktorer som räddningstjänsten inte kan påverka:
    • Agerande av utomstående innan räddningsinsatsen påbörjats
    • Byggnadens utformning
    • Brandens placering
    • Delegera ansvar och uppgifter
    • Ett tydligt definierat mål som samtliga eftersträvar
    • Utbildning och kunskap, tidigare erfarenheter, nya metoder
    • Tillgängliga resurser
    • Ha god kvalitet vid omhändertagande av de drabbade, såväl på plats som efteråt
    • Samverkan mellan berörda aktörer
      • Ha en helhetssyn över situationen och samtliga aktörers behov
      • Ha förståelse för olika aktörers perspektiv av situationen
      • Ha ett gemensamt språk mellan aktörer för att undvika missförstånd
      • Dela information mellan inblandade aktörer för att undvika dubbelarbete

    Slutligen belyser arbetet hur räddningstjänstens kunskapsutbyte ser ut i dagsläget.

    Induced Crack Network Evolution in Geomaterials: µct Examination and Mathematical Morphology Based Analysis2018Ingår i: Proceedings of China-Europe Conference on Geotechnical Engineering, Cham: Springer, 2018, Vol. 1, s. 216-219Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Fracture parameters of the rock material are known to change due to applied loading, having effect on, e.g. the rock permeability coefficient which can be estimated based on the geometrical descriptors of the crack space. In this paper, a method of crack network evolution analysis is proposed for the rock samples subjected to uniaxial compression. Fracture development is investigated using ex-situ time-lapse micro-computed tomography (µCT). The sets of images are acquired for each specimen at three damage levels: before loading, at approximately 50% of compressive strength and, finally, after reaching micro-dilatancy threshold (or compressive strength). The reconstructed and segmented 3D crack network is examined at each loading stage. The analysis consists of image processing and determination of the selected morphological parameters, i.e. volume fraction of the crack, spatial distribution of the fracture aperture, tortuosity as well as the structure model index (SMI).

    Analysis of the shear strength of joints in segmental prestressed concrete bridges2016Ingår i: 19th IABSE Congress Strockholm 21-23 September 2016: Challenges in Design and Construction of an Innovative and Sustainable Built Environment / [ed] Lennart Elfgren, Johan Jonsson, Mats Karlsson, Lahja Rydberg-Forssbeck and Britt Sigfrid, CH - 8093 Zürich, Switzerland, 2016, s. 573-579Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Joints in segmental prestressed concrete bridge (SPCB) are weak links and shear failures are likely to take place under loads. Determining the shear strength is an important part in the design of a SPCB. The shear strength in the joint relates closely to the joint form (as dry joints, epoxy joints, flat joints and keyed joints). The strength can be divided into three main parts: (1) The strength of the dry plane connection, known mainly as concrete surface friction; (2) The strength of the epoxy plane connection; and (3) The strength of the shear key root. This paper analyzes the failure mechanism and shear strength of these three parts .It also considers the influences of the shear key size and the seam height to shear strength, and establishes calculation formulas of the joint section strength in a united form. This provides a guide for the joint design in precast segmental bridges

    Structural analysis and optimal design of steel lattice wind turbine towers2019Ingår i: Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers: Structures and buildings, ISSN 0965-0911, E-ISSN 1751-7702, Vol. 172, nr 8, s. 564-579Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Wind energy has shown its dominance among the means of sustainable energy production by the accelerating rise in total installed capacity and increase in size of wind energy structures. Taking into consideration the fact that the supporting structure of onshore wind power generators constitutes approximately one-third of the initial construction cost, structural optimisation of the tower is considered crucial towards the minimisation of capital expenditure during construction. Contemporary energy needs employ the construction of constantly taller and more powerful wind power converters, whose robust design in parallel with compression of initial capital expenditure cannot be neglected. The dominant structural configuration for onshore wind power generators is the tapered steel tower, but lattice towers using enhanced special cross-sections can be a rather promising solution towards economy of material use. The present paper addresses the structural performance and optimisation of tubular and lattice steel wind turbine towers, examining alternative configuration solutions for a given height and rotor characteristics. The finite-element software Abaqus has been used for the implementation of the structural models and an algorithm has been elaborated in Mathematica software in order to allow for optimisation of the use of the cross-section in the case of lattice towers.

    Mechanochemical activation of natural clay minerals: an alternative to produce sustainable cementitious binders – review2019Ingår i: Mineralogy and Petrology, ISSN 0930-0708, E-ISSN 1438-1168, Vol. 113, nr 4, s. 449-462Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Mechanochemical activation can be defined as a process able to induce structural disorder through intensive grinding. In certain conditions, it may increase the chemical reactivity of the processed material. The process is extensively utilized in extractive metallurgy, synthesis of nanocomposites or pharmacology. It is also considered an environmentally friendly alternative to activate kaolinitic clay avoiding high calcination temperature. This paper aims to give a comprehensive overview of the process, its evolution, process parameters and applications. The paper focuses on the mechanochemical treatment of natural clay minerals, aiming at their transformation into cementitious or pozzolanic materials. It provides a summarized review of the theories related to the mechanochemistry and discusses commonly used models. The paper also analyzes various key factors and parameters controlling the mechanochemical activation process. The optimization and control of the several factors, as the filling ratio, the grinding media, the velocity, the time of grinding, etc., can promote developments and new research opportunities on different fields of application. Examples of applications, with a special focus on mechanochemically activated clay minerals and their use as cementitious binders, are listed as well.

    Mechanochemically activated clay as asustainable cementitious binder2019Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    High-temperature requirements, emission of hazardous substances from cement kilns and the significantCO2 footprint in the calcination step are factors requiring special attention in the cement industry. Local andcommonly occurring clays can be a sustainable alternative for producing cementitious binders. Structuraldisorder in natural clay minerals can be induced through mechanochemical activation (MCA), by whichthe material develops an enhanced reactivity. The treatment of a Swedish natural clay through intensivegrinding is carried out in order to assess its potential as a sustainable cementitious binder. Several grindingparameters influence a MCA product. The filling ratio of the jar, the rotation speed, the time of grinding,as well as wet and dry environment, are variated to optimize the MCA process. The MCA process doesnot require high temperatures or added chemicals and shorter processing times can avoid high-energyrequirements during fine grinding. The structural changes of the clay were analysed by X-Ray Diffraction(XRD). Analysis of the particle size distribution of the raw and processed clay suggested a correlation withthe grinding duration. An increased ratio of grinding media versus the amount of ground material, whilelonger grinding duration increased the overall efficiency of the MCA process. The strength activity index(SAI) indicated an enhanced pozzolanic activity for the mechanochemically processed clay. Compressivestrength tests have shown a strong correlation between an enhanced amorphization rate and increasedcompressive strength values.

    Optimization of the Process Parameters Controlling the Degree of Amorphization during Mechanical Activation of Clay Using the Taguchi Method2019Ingår i: 1st International Conference on  Smart Materials for Sustainable Construction—SMASCO 2019, Luleå, Sweden, 10–12 December 2019, Proceedings, 2019, Vol. 34Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Mechanical activation in a planetary ball mill (BM) is an environmentally friendly process able to enhance the chemical and pozzolanic activity of natural clays. Those materials can be used as supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) to partially replace Portland cement in concrete. The process parameters of the BM are directly related to the degree of amorphization and thus to the enhancement of the chemical activity. Design of experiments (DOE) is a well-known statistical tool, which can assist in selecting optimized conditions and in obtaining systematic data. However, full factorial design requires a large number of experiment. Taguchi method is based on the use of an Orthogonal Array (OA) to evaluate optimization of the selected factors but with less required experiments. In this study, three factors, each on 2 levels, were selected: ball to powder ratio (B/P) with level 3 and 25, time of grinding with level 5 and 20, and water to powder ratio (W/P) with level 0 and 1. The degree of amorphization (DOA) was selected as the main response for the Taguchi method. DOA was calculated as the ratio between the integral intensities of the main peak of the kaolinite [001] before and after grinding. For dry grinding, the predicted optimized value of DOA complied with the experimental results. Maximized DOA value was achieved for B/P equal to 25 and the grinding duration of 20. This method can be a valuable tool to predict the amorphization degree of minerals present in the natural clay, leading to the optimization of the mechanical activation process.

    Activation of a Raw Clay by Mechanochemical Process: Effects of Various Parameters on the Process Efficiency and Cementitious Properties2018Ingår i: Materials, ISSN 1996-1944, E-ISSN 1996-1944, Vol. 11, nr 10, artikel-id 1860Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The efficiency of the mechanochemical activation (MCA) is influenced by various process parameters as well as by the properties of the treated material. The main objective of this research was to optimize the MCA process, gaining enhancement of the chemical reactivity of a Swedish raw clay, which is going to be used as an alkali-activated cementitious binder. The effects of the amount of water, the filling ratio, the rotation speed, and the grinding duration on the amorphization degree were evaluated by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Generally, wet and dry processes showed an extensive amorphization of both kaolinite and muscovite minerals present in the studied clay. On the contrary, quartz was amorphized mainly by the wet grinding process. The efficiency of both dry and wet grinding processes was enhanced by the increased number of grinding media versus the amount of the activated material. However, longer processing times caused significant agglomeration while a higher rotational speed enhanced the amorphization. Preliminary tests have shown that alkali activation of the processed clays produced hardened samples. Furthermore, the increased amorphization corresponded to the increased compressive strength values.

    Lateral-torsional buckling resistance of cold-formed high strength steel rectangular hollow beams2016Ingår i: Insights and Innovations in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation / [ed] Alphose Zingoni, Boca Raton: CRC Press, 2016, s. 1051-1055Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Hollow sections have been widely used for steel structures. Applications of High Strength Steel (HSS) on cold-formed hollow sections lead to thinner and lighter structures. This paper presents numerical investigations on the lateral-torsional buckling resistance of the cold-formed high strength steel rectangular hollow beam. Results from finite element analysis using Abaqus software are compared to calculations accroding to Eurocode 3. First, buckling analyses are carried out to investigate buckling behaviors of the rectangular hollow beams. In this step, elastic critical moments have been investigated and compared to calculations according to SN003. Buckling shapes have been also obtained in this step. Secondly, nonlinear analyses using Riks method have been performed. Buckling resistances of the beams with various thicknesses, various high strength materials S460, S650 and S960 have been compared to calculations according to EC 3. Further investigations on geometric imperfection sensitive have been carried out with different amplitudes L/1000, L/750, L/500 and L/250.

    Resistance of cold-formed high strength steel sections: Effect of cold-formed angle2019Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Cold-formed steel members are increasingly used in industrial and civil construction. Their use allows optimised member cross sections and shapes, thereby reducing the amount of steel used as well as the weight of the structures and, consequently, reducing harmful effects on the environment. Cold-formed members are manufactured using various methods such as cold rolling or press braking. In the cold rolling method, the cold-formed member is made by passing a flat steel sheet through a series of deformation stages. In the press braking method, the cold-formed member is produced by bending a flat steel sheet along its length. Cold-formed steel circular and polygonal sections have been used for wind turbine tubular towers. In order to harness the maximum amount of the wind's kinetic energy, the height of wind turbine tubular towers has significantly increased over the last few decades. Using high strength steel material has proven to be a feasible solution to the problem of the increasing height of wind turbine towers. The use of high strength steel material for cold-formed members significantly improves their properties. It enables thinner, longer and stronger structures. Moreover, the quantity of steel material required for building cold-formed steel structures is considerably reduced, producing a beneficial effect on the environment.

    This thesis describes experimental and numerical investigations of cold-formed high strength steel sections and the effects of cold-formed angles on their properties. The effect of cold-formed angles on the properties of high strength steel was studied using tensile coupon tests. Coupon specimens with different cold-formed angles and different thicknesses were considered. Experimental results revealed that the cold-formed angle has a significant effect on the material properties. Furthermore, the cold-formed angle dependencies of the yield and tensile strengths were determined, and the strengths obtained with/without considering the influence of the cold-formed angle were compared. The yield and tensile strengths both decreased with increasing coldformed angle. The behaviour of cold-formed high strength steel angles was also investigated. Thirty-six specimens with different cold-formed angles (90°, 100°, 120°, 140°, 160°, and 170°) and different thicknesses (4 mm and 6 mm) were used for the investigation. Test results indicated that the resistance of the cold-formed angles significantly decreases, by 84%, with increasing coldformed angles from 90° to 170° (reducing influence of cold-forming). Moreover, a cold-formed angle significantly affects the failure modes of the angles. Experimental and numerical studies of cold-formed high strength steel circular and polygonal sections were carried out. A total of 32 cold-formed high strength steel circular and polygonal specimens, with and without openings, were tested under uniaxial compression. Initial geometric imperfections of the specimens were detected by using a 3D laser scanning method. Finite element analysis (FEA) models were compared with, and calibrated against, test results. The FEA results agreed well with the experimental results.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes a study of the behaviour of cold-formed high strength steel angles. Thirty-six specimens with different cold-formed angles (90°, 100°, 120°, 140°, 160°, and 170°) and different thicknesses (4 mm and 6 mm) were considered. The initial geometric imperfections of the specimens were determined using the 3D laser scanning method. The magnitudes of these geometric imperfections for torsional and torsional-flexural buckling and flexural buckling analyses were proposed. The commercial finite element analysis (FEA) programme ABAQUS with shell elements S4R was used for finite element analyses. Different material strengths in corner and flat parts along with different proof stresses (0.2%, 0.01%, and 0.006%) were considered in the numerical models. The experimental and FEA results showed good agreement. Influence of cold-formed angle on non-dimensional slenderness and reduction factor curves of the 4 mm thick columns with 90° and 120° cold-formed angles was analysed.

    Resistance of cold-formed high strength steel circular and polygonal sections: Part 2: Numerical investigations2016Ingår i: Journal of constructional steel research, ISSN 0143-974X, E-ISSN 1873-5983, Vol. 125, s. 227-238Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is the second part of the study on the cold-formed high strength steel circular and polygonal sections intended to be used in tubular wind towers. Results from 32 numerical finite element analysis (FEA) models were compared with and calibrated against results of the tests on 32 corresponding specimens. The FEA results agreed well with the experimental results in terms of resistances and load-displacement curves. Further investigations on the numerical models were performed. Yield stress used in the FEA significantly affected the resistances of the numerical models. Using 0.2% proof stress leaded to higher resistance than the experimental results. Corners significantly influenced buckling behaviour in the polygonal section models. Analyses of an oval opening in the tubular specimens showed that peak stresses around the opening were considerably higher in the polygonal section models than in the circular section models. Finally, investigation of sensitivity to geometrical imperfections indicated that failure modes of numerical models with geometrical imperfections according to EC3 significantly differed from those of tested specimens and numerical models with geometrical imperfections obtained from the 3D scans.

    En studie i automatiska brandlarmsystem hos Norrbottens läns sjukhus2019Självständigt arbete på grundnivå (yrkesexamen), 10 poäng / 15 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [sv]

    Automatiska brandlarmsystem spelar ofta en central roll i byggnaders brandskydd. Systemen fyller en viktig funktion då de utformas för att detektera brand i ett tidigt skede och därefter aktivera nödvändiga åtgärder för att minimera konsekvenser av en brand. Dessa åtgärder kan exempelvis vara att aktivera utrymningslarm eller styrning av ventilationssystem. Sjukhus är ofta komplexa byggnader med många olika verksamheter under ett och samma tak och det ställs därför höga krav på att brandlarmanläggningar skall fungera som avsett.

    Det nämns i Sverige såväl som internationellt i Europa att det är väldigt få automatlarm från brandlarmanläggningar där det faktiskt utbrutit en brand, jämfört med antal larm då det inte utbrutit en brand. Det är ingen ovanlighet att andelen brandtillbud är så låg som 5%. Inträffade bränder på Norrbottens läns sjukhus består inte bara av olyckor och tekniska fel utan orsakas även av individers illvilja och desperata handlingar. Hur fungerar då brandlarmanläggningarna på Norrbotten läns fem sjukhus, och hur uppfattas dem av personal och räddningstjänster?

    De automatiska brandlarmsystemen på Norrbottens läns fem sjukhus undersöktes genom en förstudie, dokumentgranskning och till sist en kvalitativ intervjustudie med driftpersonal, räddningstjänster och besiktningspersonal. Primärt fokus var att undersöka om sjukhusens brandlarm ger likvärdigt skydd eller om någon anläggning utmärker sig mer än de andra på något sätt. Syftet var även att undersöka sjukhusets egen personals och kommunernas räddningstjänsters uppfattning om brandlarmen. Det finns omfattande regelverk som styr vilka typer av verksamheter som kräver ett automatiskt brandlarm, hur dessa skall dimensioners, underhållas och besiktigas. I SBF 110 – Regler för brandlarm finns bestämmelser att revisionsbesiktningar skall utföras. Dokumentgranskningen bestod av sammanställning och jämförelser mellan protokoll från revisionsbesiktningar för de olika åren på respektive sjukhus. Även insatsstatistik för respektive kommun undersöktes.

    Insatsstatistik och besiktningsprotokoll från de olika sjukhusen skiljde sig något men vid närmare granskning kunde ett samband mellan de båda ses för de enskilda sjukhusen. Dessa samband tillsammans med framkomna åsikter vid intervjustudien visade att åtgärdsarbete och underhåll sköts bättre på ett par sjukhus än andra. Även räddningstjänsters och besiktningsmäns uppfattning styrkte, oberoende av varandra, dessa mönster. Med dessa åsikter tillsammans med teorier och resultat från tidigare studier om brandlarm kunde slutsatser dras.

    Besiktningspersonal menade att vissa verksamheter vidtar åtgärder och arbetar för en säkrare anläggning medan andra upplevs som att de inte tar åt sig eller vill göra förbättringar i samma utsträckning. Räddningstjänsterna skiljde sig även åt i sin uppfattning där en menade att sjukhuset är stort och inte är ett problemområde rent larmmässigt, och att ett visst antal falsklarm måste förväntas och accepteras av en sådan stor verksamhet. En annan räddningstjänst menade att sjukhuset är en av de verksamheter som genererar flest larm i kommunen och hoppas på en förbättring. Sjukhusens egen personal, i form av driftpersonal, anläggningsskötare och driftchef, var generellt nöjda med sina anläggningar och upplevde inga större problem.

    Sammanfattning

    II

    Efter en sammantagen bedömning av insamlat och tillhandahållet material anses Gällivare sjukhus vara det sjukhus som har mest arbete att göra runt sitt brandlarm för att nå upp till en likvärdig nivå som de bäst presterande sjukhusen. Bidragande orsaker till detta har varit den jämförelsevis höga falsklarmstatistiken och låga åtgärdsstatistiken. Besiktningspersonalens åsikter som oberoende part speglade denna statistik och var på så vis ett bra komplement som styrkte dessa observationer. Kiruna sjukhus tillsammans med Kalix och Piteå bedöms som de sjukhus som ligger i framkant med sitt arbete och har det tillsynes bäst fungerande arbetet runt brandlarmanläggningarna. Detta med utgångspunkt i den höga åtgärdsstatistiken och lägre antalet automatlarm som genererats från dessa sjukhus. Räddningstjänsterna i dessa tre kommuner har goda uttalanden och reflektioner angående sjukhusen. Även besiktningspersonal uppgav sig ha goda erfarenheter från dessa sjukhus.

    Bridges tested to failure in Sweden2018Ingår i: IABSE Conference 2018 – Engineering the Past, to Meet the Needs of the FutureJune 25-27 2018, Copenhagen, Denmark, 2018Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Five bridges of different types have been tested to failure and the results have been compared to analyses of the load-carrying capacity using standard code models and advanced numerical methods. The results may help to make accurate assessments of similar existing bridges. There it is necessary to know the real behaviour, weak points, and to be able to model the load-carrying capacity in a correct way.The five bridges were: (1) a strengthened one span concrete road bridge - Stora Höga ; (2) a one span concrete rail trough bridge loaded in fatigue – Lautajokk; (3) a two span strengthened concrete trough railway bridge - Övik; (4) a one span railway steel truss bridge -Åby; and (5) a five span prestressed concrete road bridge - Kiruna. The unique results in the paper are the experiences of the real failure types, the robustness/weakness of the bridges, and the accuracy and shortcomings/potentials of different codes and models for safety assessment of existing structures

    Repair and Strengthening of Railway Bridges - Guideline SB-STR: Sustainable Bridges, SB-D6.12007Rapport (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Not all bridges need to be strengthened. More refined calculation models or following up through monitoring may show that strengthening is obsolete. Nevertheless, if it is found that strengthening is necessary, then it would be advantageous if the owner, designer and contractor are given guidance. This report presents a structured way to address strengthening needs and suitable strengthening systems connected to that need.The purpose with this report (guideline) is to give the railway owners (and also the designer and contractors) guidance for repair and strengthening of railway bridges. The proposed method of working with this guideline is new and innovative, taking the standpoint in the bridge component that needs to be strengthened, i.e. flexure, shear etc. and from that level suggesting a strengthening method. The method itself is connected to what here has been denoted a graphical index. For each bridge type and/or structural element, a sketch is presented and locations for different common strengthening problems are highlighted. To the problem, a method description and a case study are then connected which clearly explain how the strengthening problem can be solved. In the guideline focus has foremost been placed on new repair and strengthening methods that have been investigated in the work within work package 6 in the Sustainable Bridges project. However, an extended summary of commonly used strengthening methods for concrete, metallic and masonry arch bridges is also presented – but not to the same extend as for FRP bonding and external prestressing. It is suggested that the report is used as a living document and has also been written as such. That means that it should be easy and possible to upgrade the method of working with new strengthening methods and systems, it should also be possible to add for example design suggestions and more detailed work descriptions if needed. The method of working is very suitable to incorporate in a database which then easily could be upgraded over time. However, this has not been possible to accomplish within the current project. The guideline contains a main report showing the structure to follow. In the appendices are the method descriptions and cases studies appended.

    A new improved type of friction connection: An experimental study2017Ingår i: IABSE Conference, Vancouver 2017: Engineering the Future, Zürich, Switzerland: IABSE -International Association for Bridges and Structural Engineering , 2017, s. 214-221Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Indenters in the slip planes of a bolted lap joint increase its load bearing capacity. In an experimental study, conducted at the Luleå University of Technology, Sweden, a part of the European R&D project PROLIFE, RFCS 2015-00025, indenters between two plates a) were loaded in compression and b) shear loaded in a lap joint. The load to press a 2.5 mm diameter stainless steel indenter 2.3 mm into the plates was 11 kN and the effective friction of the joint was improved. In a reference test with two shear planes and plain as rolled plates, no indenters and an M30 bolt pre-loaded to 320 kN, the joint slip resistance force was 54.5 kN and the effective friction coefficient μeff=0.09. For an identical arrangement but with 29 indenters per shear plane, the slip resistance was close to 250 kN and μeff was increased to 0.40, at the current Eurocode acceptable joint slip of 0.15 mm.

    Effect of Additional Surfaces on Ordinary Portland Cement Early-Age Hydration2017Ingår i: Materials Sciences and Applications, ISSN 2153-117X, E-ISSN 2153-1188, Vol. 8, nr 12, artikel-id 80241Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Early-age hydration of Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) was studied in the presence of two additional surfaces. Additional surfaces are known to accelerate the early-age hydration of OPC. Autocatalytic reaction modelling was used to determine acceleration mechanism of additional surfaces. Heat development of the hydration was measured with semi-adiabatic calorimetry and the results were modelled with an autocatalytic reaction. Autocatalytic reaction modelling was able to determine number of initially active nucleation sites in early-age hydration. OPC hydration followed autocatalytic reaction principles throughout induction period and accelerating period. Both of the added surfaces, limestone filler and calcium-silicate-hydrate (C-S-H) coated limestone filler accelerated the early-age hydration. According to autocatalytic modelling, the C-S-H coated filler increased the number of initially active nucleation sites. Pristine limestone filler accelerated the early-age hydration by providing the additional nucleation sites throughout the early-age hydration. The difference was explained with common theories of nucleation and crystal growth. Autocatalytic model and measured calorimeter curve started to significantly deviate at the inflection point, where the reaction mode changed. The reaction mode change depended on the average particle distance. Early-age hydration, modelled as autocatalytic reaction was able to improve understanding of OPC early-age hydration and quantify the number of initially active nucleation sites. Understanding and quantifying the acceleration mechanisms in early-age hydration will aid larger utilization of supplementary cementitious materials where understanding the early-age strength development is crucial

    Calcium chloride acceleration in ordinary Portland cement2018Ingår i: Magazine of Concrete Research, ISSN 0024-9831, E-ISSN 1751-763X, Vol. 70, nr 16, s. 856-863Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Early-age hydration of ordinary Portland cement is now acknowledged to originate from nucleation and crystal growth of calcium–silicate–hydrates. The acceleration mechanism of water-soluble inorganic substances, such as calcium chloride, is still unclear. In the present study, the acceleration mechanism was approached in two independent ways. First, the acceleration effect of filler materials (limestone and quartz powder) and calcium chloride (CaCl2) were studied experimentally with a conduction calorimeter. Second, the calcium chloride effect was studied with thermodynamic modelling. The experimental test results showed that the filler materials accelerated the acceleration period of ordinary Portland cement hydration, whereas calcium chloride accelerated hydration throughout the 24 h measuring period. A synergistic effect was observed with fillers and calcium chloride. Thermodynamic modelling indicated that calcium chloride provides a supersaturation with respect to pure calcium–silicate–hydrate. It was concluded that the supersaturation provides a qualitative explanation for both calcium chloride-induced acceleration and the synergistic effect observed with fillers

    Improvement of fatigue resistance through box-action for I-girder composite bridges2016Ingår i: IABSE CONGRESS, STOCKHOLM, 2016: Challenges in Design and Construction of an Innovativeand Sustainable Built Environment / [ed] ennart Elfgren, Johan Jonsson, Mats Karlsson, Lahja Rydberg-Forssbeck and Britt Sigfrid, CH - 8093 Zürich, Switzerland, 2016, s. 1988-1994Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    When strengthening existing I-girder composite bridges one idea is to make the cross section act like a box section, by adding a horizontal truss between the bottom flanges. This means that eccentric loads produce a torque that is transferred by shear forces around the section. The magnitude of the effects coming from introducing such a framework between girders is addressed in this article. The fatigue resistance will be improved by the reduced stress ranges and increased amount of tolerated load cycles and extend the lifetime of the details, and by so the lifetime for the bridge.

    FEM based research on the dynamic response of a concrete railway arch bridge2016Ingår i: IABSE CONGRESS, STOCKHOLM, 2016: Challenges in Design and Construction of an Innovative and Sustainable Built Environment / [ed] Elfgren, Lennart; Jonsson, Johan; Karlsson, Mats; Rydberg-Forssbeck, Lahja; Sigfid, Britt2016, CH - 8093 Zürich, Switzerland, 2016, s. 2472-2479Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The dynamic response of a concrete railway arch bridge is studied through a case study of the bridge over Kalix River, situated at Långforsen on the railway line between Kalix and Morjärv in northern Sweden. A simplified beam-element model, a spatial grillage-beam model and a refined shell-element model were built to analyze the bridge structure. A methodology was applied where measured static and dynamic responses were used to update finite element models of Långforsen Bridge. A multi-response objective function was presented, and the finite element method was proved feasible by comparison of predicted and measured response. In the paper comparative analyses were made of the time history displacement of three finite element models under three measured load cases. A standard train model from EUROCODE, HSLM-A 1, was applied and the dynamic responses under different speeds were studied. The results showed that a refined shell element model could accurately analyze dynamic responses of the concrete railway arch bridge in a better way than beam element and spatial grillage models. The dynamic analysis based on this type of shell model can give an optimized suggestion for the railway operation as well as for the design of high-speed railway bridges.

    Fatigue Assessment of Reinforced Concrete Railway Bridge based on a Coupled Dynamic System2020Ingår i: Structure and Infrastructure Engineering, ISSN 1573-2479, E-ISSN 1744-8980Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a fatigue damage assessment methodology of a reinforced concrete bridge based on a train bridge coupled dynamic analysis system. This coupling system is composed of a vehicle a ballasted track and a bridge structure to realize a coupled vibration analysis during train passages. This methodology adopts the Palmgren Miner rule to linearly accumulate fatigue damage, and accomplishes fatigue assessment based on recommended SN relationships for reinforced concrete from various criteria. In this paper, the dynamic performances of a bridge structure are analyzed with two different vehicle models, a moving load model (and a moving spring mass damper model). Calculated dynamic stresses areused to evaluate the fatigue damage of critical positions in a reinforced concrete bridge. A case study is carried out of a railway arch bridge with a span of 89 m, Långforsen Bridge. It runs over Kalix River on the railway between Kalix and Morjärv in northern Sweden The fatigue assessment is made by combining the presented methodology with measurements. Furthermore, the effects of train speed and axle load on fatigue damage are investigated. The results indicate that good estimations of the fatigue damage assessment are made for four measured cases based on a train-bridge coupled dynamic analysis. For low speeds and light loads no difference could be seen in the cumulative fatigue damage for the two vehicle models. But high speeds and/or heavy load ssignificantly affect the fatigue damage.
