Influence of Synthetic Fibers on the Flexural Properties of Concrete: Prediction of Toughness as a Function of Volume, Slenderness Ratio and Elastic Modulus of Fibers
The construction industry requires concrete with adequate post-cracking behavior for applications such as tunnels, bridges, and pavements. For this reason, polypropylene macrofibers are used, which are synthetic fibers ...
Exploring Impacts of Oil and Water Environments on Structural and Electronic Features of Vitamin B3 along with DFT Calculations
(Sami Publishing Company, 2023)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were performed to investigate the features of vitamin B3 (Vit-B3) in oil and water environments. Two up and down structural conformations were found based on the orientation of ...
A cost-benefit analysis for the appraisal of social and market prices in the probabilistic seismic risk assessment of building portfolios: A methodology for the evaluation of disaster risk reduction programs
A cost-benefit analysis can be a milestone for the probabilistic seismic risk assessment of building portfolios. This approach appraises social, economic, and technical aspects as evaluation criteria, becoming a reliable ...
Transforming Waste into Value: Eco-Friendly Synthesis of MOFs for Sustainable PFOA Remediation
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2023)
In response to the need for sustainable solutions to address perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) contamination, we have developed an eco-friendly approach for synthesizing two types of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) using waste ...
Construction process time optimization of a reinforced concrete reaction slab, implementing the VDC methodology
(CRC Press, 2023)
The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry has shown low productivity levels, mainly due to the fragmentation between the agents involved. Given this, the industry is modernizing and implementing ...
VDC framework proposal for curtain wall construction process optimization
(CRC Press, 2023)
A building is made up of structural and non-structural elements. Among these are the curtain wall systems. The curtain walls are glazed elements that can cover the building façade entirely and provide thermal and enclosure ...
Recent advances in metal nanoparticles to treat periodontitis
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2023)
The gradual deterioration of the supporting periodontal tissues caused by periodontitis, a chronic multifactorial infammatory disease, is thought to be triggered by the colonization of dysbiotic plaque bioflms in a ...
Molecular mechanisms of long non-coding RNAs in differentiation of T Helper17 cells
T helper (Th) 17 cells are one of the most important T cell subsets in a number of autoimmune and chronic inflammatory diseases. During infections, Th17 cells appear to play an important role in the clearance of extracellular ...
Using UAVs and Photogrammetry in Bathymetric Surveys in Shallow Waters
The use of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) platforms and photogrammetry in bathymetric surveys has been established as a technological advancement that allows these activities to be conducted safely, more affordably, and at ...
Applying Project-Based Learning (PBL) for Teaching Virtual Design Construction (VDC)
(International Association of Online Engineering, 2023)
Learning-centered models, which rely on active methodologies such as Project-Based Learning (PBL), should be adopted in undergraduate programs to potentiate the development of collaboration skills within future industry ...
