Impacts of multiple refurbishment strategies on hygrothermal behaviour of basement walls
The refurbishment of existing buildings to provide thermal performance comparable to new design standards can be achieved using multiple design strategies. Although high structural thermal resistance is usually considered ...
Modelling of plastic culvert and road embankment interaction in 3D
A series of 3D Finite Element simulations was performed to investigate the effect of different factors influencing the distortions undergone by a plastic culvert tube while subject to external loading from a heavy truck. ...
Fly ash in forest road rehabilitation
Finnish forestry and bioenergy production is seeking novel uses for the fly ash deriving from biomass conversion. There are various possibilities for using fly ash in civil engineering including road construction. The ...
