Post-Earthquake Assessment of Bridge Columns Using AI Enabled Computer Vision

Presentation Post-Earthquake Assessment of Bridge Columns Using AI Enabled Computer Vision Modern seismic design codes ensure a large displacement capacity and prevent total collapse for bridges.  However, this performance objective is usually attained at the cost of damage to target ductile members.  For reinforced concrete (RC) bridges, the columns are usually the main source of […]

Rock Failure Process Analysis

Presentation Rock Failure Process Analysis A major difficulty in studying the fracture mechanisms for rock subjected to various loads is the fact that rock is a natural, composite material which is Discontinuous, Inhomogeneous, Anisotropic and Not Elastic (DIANE). It is not possible to analytically examine and evaluate the mechanical behavior of a DIANE rock exhibiting […]

Developing Enhanced Performance Curves of ITD Asphalt Pavements by Mining the Historical Data

Presentation Developing Enhanced Performance Curves of ITD Asphalt Pavements by Mining the Historical Data This presentation introduces work of a recently finished project aiming to develop reliable and realistic and enhanced performance curves for Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) asphalt pavements by mining the historical data. To this end, the project reviewed currently applied predictive models […]

Evolutionary Characteristics of Microstructural Hydration and Chloride Diffusion in UHPC

Presentation Evolutionary Characteristics of Microstructural Hydration and Chloride Diffusion in UHPC This webinar presents the evolutionary characteristics of microstructural hydration and chloride migration in ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). The physicochemical interactions of constituents are simulated in conjunction with a random walk algorithm. The computed responses of the UHPC mixtures at a compressive strength varying from […]

Seismic Performance of Corroded Precast Concrete Columns

Presentation Seismic Performance of Corroded Precast Concrete Columns Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) results in bridges that are assembled using precast concrete elements built with better quality in significantly shorter time […]
