Structural behaviour of concrete filled octagonal shaped steel tubes under axial compression
Speaker: Jiong-Yi Zhu
University: The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
A new constitutive model that captures the experimentally demonstrated confinement and moisture-dependent behaviour of concrete when heated under multiaxial mechanical load.
The aim of this project is to optimally design an efficient floating man-made windbreak for the infrastructure and fragile coastlines vulnerable to wind storms.
This research addresses the scientific base for a new resilience-based bridge pier design and construction using a new composite column inspired by the human anatomy.
