Shear strength of reinforced concrete wall-beam structures: upper- bound analysis and experiments
(University of CambridgeDowning CollegeDepartment of Engineering, 1987-10-27)
This study presents rigid-plastic methods of analysis of shear failure in reinforced concrete (R. C.) wall-beam type structures when subjected to in-plane loading. The upper-bound approach is emphasised. Present shear ...
The elastic and plastic behaviour of cellular materials
(University of CambridgeChurchill CollegeDepartment of Engineering, 1981-11-10)
Cellular materials are widespread. Some, like wood and bone, occur in nature, while others, like polymeric foams, are manmade. Because of their cellular structure, they have unusual mechanical properties: they can be stiff, ...
Friction and lubrication in metal rolling
(University of CambridgeJesus CollegeDepartment of Engineering, 1989-11-14)
This dissertation is concerned with the physical processes which determine friction and lubrication in metal rolling in the mixed lubrication regime, with particular attention paid to the conditions encountered when rolling ...
Scale effects in tests on footings
(University of CambridgeChrist's College, 1988-02-21)
This dissertation presents an investigation of the effects of stress, and of absolute and relative particle size, in tests on vertically loaded footings. Two granular materials, namely, a silica rock flour and a Chatelet ...
