Journal of the Korea institute for structural maintenance and inspection, volume 11, issue 4, 2007, Pages 51~61
A series of three shear wall specimens were tested under constant axial stress and reversed cyclic lateral loading to evaluate the capacity of seismic retrofit proposed for the shear wall with the opening induced by remodeling. One specimen was tested in the as-built condition and the others were retrofitted prior to testing. The retrofit involved the use of carbon fiber sheets and steel plates (thickness ; 3mm) over the entire face of the wall. Specimens were 1/2-scale representations of a one-story wall in a Korean apartment building that was built in 1980. The test results showed that failure mechanism of specimens governed by shear fracture and the strength of specimens was varied with according to the retrofitting strategies.

This paper reports an evaluation method on the shear strength of interior beam-column joints composed of steel beams and reinforced concrete columns(RCS). The shear strength is generally calculated by the sum of the nominal shear resistance of a steel web panel and concrete elements. In this paper, the shear strength is calculated based on the compression strut theory instead of compression field theory. Design equations presented herein are evaluated through comparison with existing experimental results. The comparisons between experimental and calculated results show an excellent agreement.

Schmidt hammer and ultra-sonic method are commonly used for crushed sand concrete compressive strength test in a construction field. At present, various of equations for prediction of strength are present, which have been used in a construction field. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the correlation between prediction strength by presentation equations and destructive strength to test specimen, and find out which is a suitable equation for the construction site. In this study, a strength test was carried out destructive test by means of core sampling and traditional test. The experimental parameter were concrete age, curing condition, and strength level.

Concrete structures undergo degradation of durability performance and it generally propagates to the structural problems. Recently. a lot of materials for surface protection for concrete are developed, however, performance is not clearly improved due to the difficulties such as repair construction technique and quality of materials for repairing. In this study, liquid inorganic impregnant for concrete structures is developed and durability performance for impregnated concrete specimens is carried out. Furthermore, the performances of the concrete specimens with developed impregnant is also compared with those of the specimens with impregnant conventionally used. Additional CSH gel is formed through the reaction of calcium hydroxide (
) and impregnant with silicate. As a result of the reaction, impregnated concrete is evaluated to have more denser surface and resistance to deterioration. Finally it is experimentally verified that the concrete specimens with developed impregnant show better durability performance than normal specimens and those with conventional impregnant.

The purpose of this study is to experimentally evaluate the structural behavior of built-up type column consisted of angles and y-shape steel sheet forms for filling concrete. This column for minimizing form working and reinforcement placing is able to improve capacity of construction and reduce the term of works. Thirteen 1/3 scaled columns were fabricated. The main variables are 1) effect of angles and y-shape steel sheets of fabricated columns, 2) slenderness of column, 3) eccentricity of column. The results show that the experimental capacity of built-up type column is similar to theoretical one by reinforcement concrete design code. The maximum loads increase according to the rate of angle to cross section of column.

In the flat-plate slab design of the KCI and ACI building code, the punching shear strength of connections with shear reinforcement can increase one and half times to that of connections without shear reinforcement. And the ACI-ASCE committee 352 recommendations propose limiting the direct shear ratio
on interior connections to 0.4 to insure adequate drift capacity. In this study, four interior column-slab connections were tested to look into the punching shear strength and the lateral displacement capacity of the flat-plate slab with and without shear reinforcement under cyclic lateral loading. Based on the test results, it is found that the provision about punching shear strength in the codes may appropriate for the gravity loading only whereas it is unconservative for the lateral loading and that the limit of ACI-ASCE committee 352 appears conservative.

In this study, a bridge maintenance system is developed to generate performance-based optimum maintenance strategy by considering the life-cycle cost. A multi-objective combinatorial optimization problem is formulated to generate a tradeoff maintenance scenarios which satisfies the balance among the conflicting objectives such as the performance and cost during the bridge lifetime and a genetic algorithm is applied to the system. By using the developed program, this study proposes a process of optimum maintenance scenario applying to the steel girder bridge of national road. The developed system improves the current methods of establishing the bridge maintenance strategy and can be utilized as an efficient tool to provide the optimum bridge maintenance scenario corresponding to the various constraints and requirements of bridge agency.

Lee, Seung-Tae ;
Journal of the Korea institute for structural maintenance and inspection, volume 11, issue 4, 2007, Pages 121~128
The present study evaluates the resistance to sulfate attack of cement matrix with or without silica fume. The main variable was the replacement levels of silica fume. In order to introduce sulfate attack to cement matrix, mortars and pastes was exposed to sodium sulfate solution for 510 days. Visual examination, expansion and compressive strength loss of mortars in addition to characteristics of pore for the paste samples were regularly investigated. From the test results, it was clearly observed that the cement matrix with silica fume was very resistant to sulfate attack irrespective of the replacement levels of silica fume. However, the severe deterioration due to sulfate attack was found in cement matrix without silica fume.

An algorithm is proposed for estimating axle loads of trucks moving over a bridge by measuring dynamic responses. The bridge was modeled by a beam structure in the current applications of the proposed algorithm. Among the state vectors, measured acceleration was used and displacement was computed from measured strain at the same location. Nodal force vectors were computed by using a ready-made database of equivalent nodal force transformation matrix. The algorithm was examined through simulation studies and laboratory experiments. The effects of measurement noise and velocity error were investigated through simulation studies.

Geotechnical performance at the soft ground is strongly dependent on the properties of the soil beneath and adjacent to the structure of interest. These soil properties can be described using deterministic and/or probabilistic models. Deterministic models typically use a single discrete descriptor for the parameter of interest. Probabilistic models describe parameters by using discrete statistical descriptors or probability distribution density functions. The consolidation process depends on several uncertain parameters including the coefficients of consolidation and coefficients of permeability in vertical and horizontal directions. The implication of this uncertain parameter in the design of prefabricated vertical drains for soil improvement is discussed. A sensitivity analysis of the degree of consolidation and calculation of settlements to these uncertain parameters is presented for clayey deposits.

Load testing is an effective means in calculating the rating value of bridge. In Korea, load carrying capacity of bridge is modified by response modification factor that is determined from comparisons of measured values and analysis results. This paper presents the development of a method for determining the response modification factor, using traffic load. The proposed method is based on the results of computer simulations of traffic action effects. A comparison between the proposed method and the present method shows good agreement in estimating the modified load carrying capacity of bridges.

This is a fundamental research to utilize alkali activated cement(AAC) in concrete. The compressive strength of AAC concrete were measured for the various mixing ratios of activator/fly ash, and the mixing ratios of water glass, NaOH, and water among the activators. The mixing ratio of fine and coarse aggregates was maintained constantly. The relationships between the compressive strength and mixing ratios were analyzed to find the optimal mixing ratio of AAC concrete. As the results, the optimal mixing ratio of activator/fly ash in AAC concrete was 0.7, and that of water glass, NaOH, water among the activator was 4.0:1.0:2.5 for the maximum compressive strength.
