Abstract: The operation of reinforced concrete structures is directly associated with the adhesion between the steel bar and the concrete, which allows the internal forces to be transferred to the reinforcement during the process of loading the structural elements. The modification of the concrete composition, with the introduction of recycled aggregate from constr...

Abstract: The use of cool materials on the building envelope is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase indoor thermal comfort conditions in hot climates and decrease the cooling energy needs. Despite the benefit of reducing cooling loads, researches have demonstrated that aging of roof coatings changes the initial solar reflectance (SR), which influences t...

Abstract: Augmented Reality (AR) applications can be used to improve tasks and mitigate errors during facilities operation and maintenance. This article presents an AR system for facility management using a three-dimensional (3D) object tracking method. Through spatial mapping, the object of interest, a pipe trap underneath a sink, is tracked and mixed onto the AR ...

Abstract: Apart from many advantages, High Strength Concrete (HSC) has disadvantages in terms of brittleness and poor resistance to fire. Various studies suggest that when polypropylene (PP) fibers are uniformly distributed within concrete, they play an active role in improving spalling resistance of concrete when exposed to elevated temperature while having no adv...
