Morris, G.; Bull, D.K.; Bradley, Brendon (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2015)A major lesson from the 2011 Christchurch earthquake was the apparent lack of ductility of some lightly reinforced concrete (RC) wall structures. In particular, the structural behaviour of the critical wall in the Gallery ...
Bell, John C. (John Culford) (University of Canterbury, 1970)A complete analysis for reinforced concrete slabs and shells, which analyses a structure for successive loads, is formulated. For each load a simulated structure is formed from anisotropic (or isotropic) finite elements ...
Soleymani Ashtiani, Mohammad; Dhakal, Rajesh; Scott, A.N. (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2013)The capability of self-compacting concrete (SCC) in flowing through and filling in even the most congested areas makes it ideal for being used in congested reinforced concrete (RC) structural members such as beam-column ...
