This thesis is composed of three main projects which are directly linked to wind engineering. Hazards such as tornadoes and hurricanes are natural disasters which causes human and economic losses. First, the study consists ...
Development of a Small Diameter Rapid Pressuremeter Test for Unbound Pavement Layer Evaluations
Six inch and 12 inch long small diameter pressuremeter (SDPMT) probes were developed and tested extensively to determine in situ stress-strain properties of unbound pavement layers. They were deployed in the same hole ...
Evaluation of Bond Properties between Fiber Reinforced Concrete Overlay and Substrate Concrete
Bonded concrete overlay is the most economical and quick option in concrete rehabilitation methods to provide strength for the existing structure. Bonded concrete overlay strength rely on properties of both layers ...
