Solar photocatalytic treatment of trimethoprim in four environmental matrices at a pilot scale: Transformation products and ecotoxicity evaluation
The pilot-scale solar degradation of trimethoprim (TMP) in different water matrices (demineralized water: DW, simulated natural freshwater: SW
Collapse Fragility Curves for RC Buildings Exhibiting Brittle Failure Modes
Defining the collapse probability of existing nonseismically designed RC buildings is a challenge mainly due to the fact that its determination relies on the simulation of the brittle failure modes controlling the collapse ...
A nonlinear impact model for simulating the use of rubber shock absorbers for mitigating the effects of structural pounding during earthquakes
SUMMARY During strong earthquakes, structural poundings may occur between adjacent buildings because of the limited separation distance and the deformations of their stories. A potential mitigation measure for this problem ...
In-situ measurement of liquid phase moisture in cement mortar
A sensing method is developed and used for measurement of liquid phase moisture transport through cement mortar. Near-infrared electromagnetic energy launched through optical fibers is used to analyze the internal environment ...
