A new approach to estimate compressive strength of concrete by the UPV method Um novo procedimento para estimar a resistência à compressão do concreto pelo método VPU
Abstract Resumo Although the ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) method has been extensively used to estimate concrete compressive strength, the relationship between UPV and concrete strength is mixture
The use of volcanic scoria from ‘Djoungo’ (Cameroon) as cement replacement and fine aggregate by sand substitution in mortar for masonry
Abstract In this paper, the utilisation of volcanic scoria from ‘Djoungo’ (Cameroon) as cement and fine aggregate replacement in Portland cement masonry mortar was investigated. Four natural
Impacts of air-entrained agents and curing time on mechanical and durability characteristics of structural lightweight concrete
This paper investigated the mechanical properties and durability of air-entrained structural lightweight concrete under an acidic environment. Experiments included visual inspection, nondestructive
Prediction of Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity for Cement, Mortar, and Concrete through a Multiscale Homogenization Approach
Ultrasonic testing (UT) is an important method for concrete, and ultrasonic pulse velocity is commonly used to evaluate the quality of concrete materials in existing studies. The ultrasonic pulse
Compressive strength prediction model of high-strength concrete with silica fume by destructive and non-destructive technique
The study proposes a new model for estimating the compressive strength of high-strength concrete using destructive and non-destructive testing. The effect of silica fume replacement level and its
Evaluation of residual strength with ultrasonic pulse velocity relationship for concrete exposed to high temperatures
This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation on the relationship between strength and ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) of concrete exposed to high temperature, especially for a
Noise Reduction for Improvement of Ultrasonic Monitoring Using Coda Wave Interferometry on a Real Bridge
Reinforced concrete bridges are iconic parts of modern infrastructure. They are designed for a minimum service life of 100 years. However, environmental factors and/or inappropriate use might cause
Prediction of the compressive strength of high-performance self-compacting concrete by an ultrasonic-rebound method based on a GA-BP neural network
The excellent agreement between the predicted and test values demonstrates the model can accurately predict theCompressive strength of SCC and hence reduce the cost and time for SCC compressive strength testing.
