This Week's Featured Presentation

Durability and Seismic Performance of Bridge Columns with Ductile Fiber-Reinforced Cementitious Materials and Superelastic Alloys
by Bora Gencturk, University of Houston

Session details

Concrete Bridges Built with Advanced Materials: Seismic Performance and Design Issues (ACI Spring 2016 Convention, Milwaukee, WI)
ACI Committee 341, “Earthquake-Resistant Concrete Bridges,” hosted a session on the seismic performance evaluation, design, and retrofitting of concrete bridges by using advanced materials such as shape memory alloy (SMA) in the form of reinforcing bar, wire, or strand; ultra-high-strength metals; ultra-high-performance cement composites; and nanosilica. The main objective of this session is to present results from recent research studies (experimental/numerical/analytical) and practical examples of application of advanced materials in reinforced concrete (RC) bridge piers, bents, or full bridges. This session is for practitioners, educators, and researchers.
