Experimental Analysis of Composite Beams

Daniel Dubecky; Vincent Kvocak; Michala Weissova

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022


  Composite polymer-concrete beams represent new modern structures that can take an advantage of the polymer's practical tensile properties and combine them with the concrete's favourable compressive properties. Drawing on this knowledge, a set of polymer beams acting compositely with a concrete slab was ...  Read More

The resistance to UV radiation for GFRP pultruded bridge panels

Beata Stankiewicz

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022


  Depending on the type of the load which affects the durability and design life glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) structures should be designed so as to take into account as first of all the chemical-physical conditions in which the structure is used including: ultraviolet (UV) radiation, temperature ...  Read More

CO2 Permeation through Nanoporous graphene: a theoretical study

Zacharias Fthenakis; Antonios Fountoulakis; Ioannis Petsalakis; Nektarios Lathiotakis

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022


  This work is part of a systematic study on the energy barriers for the permeation of several molecules, like He, H2, CO, CO2, H2O, NH3, CH4 etc, through nanoporous single layer graphene, having pores with different shape, size, and type. In the present work, we focus on the permeation of CO2 through ...  Read More

Synthesis and thermomechanical behavior of SiC/Si compounds derived from wood waste

Miranda Benavides; Denis Leonardo Mayta; Fernando Alonso Cuzziramos; Gerhard Paul Rodriguez; Fredy Alberto Huaman-Mamani

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022


  The traditional method of manufacturing SiC compounds is associated with a serious environmental problem, mainly due to the need for large amounts of energy (generally derived from oil) to reach processing temperatures (typically above 2500 ºC). In addition, the chemical reaction that gives rise ...  Read More

Effect of closely spaced knots on the failure mechanism of timber beams

Khaled Saad; Andras Lengyel

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022


  This research presents a parametric three-dimensional finite element study on the effects of closely spaced knots and related fibre deviations on the flexural failure mechanism of wood. The model considers the effects of the position of the knots along the beam's longitudinal and vertical axis. The numerical ...  Read More

Preparation, Characterization and Photocatalytic Activity studies of Ag+, Cu2+ and Sn2+-doped Li2GeTeO6 under Visible Light Irradiation

Vithal Muga; Vaishnavi Kammara; Venkataswamy Perala; Manasa Sunku; Ramaswamy Kadari; Hima Bindu Gaddameedi; Sudhakar Reddy Chandiri

Volume 13, Issue 3 , July 2022


  Doping of cations into wide bandgap semiconductors is an effective method of increasing photocatalytic activity. This work aims to find out how dopant ions like Ag+, Cu2+ and Sn2+ affect the structural, optical and photocatalytic properties of Li2GeTeO6. The parent Li2GeTeO6 (LGTO) was synthesized by ...  Read More
