Abstract

The subgrade soil is an integral part of pavements which provides support to the pavement. The behaviour of road surface depends on the strength of filling material and the subgrade below it. The pavements are vulnerably affected by the change in subgrade soil properties due to water-table fluctuation, overloading, flooding, etc. This study focuses on improving the strength of soil subgrade using plastic waste soil reinforcement technique in pavement construction, looking to the current environmental issue related to the utilisation of waste plastic, as plastic is a non-biodegradable material. In this study, geocell and geogrid were prepared from plastic waste and used as soil reinforcement. The plastic waste geocell and geogrid were placed at different depths from the top of the CBR mould. The CBR test was performed for unsoaked condition of virgin soil and reinforced soil, and the behaviour of load versus penetration was observed. The results show that by placing plastic waste reinforcement at different depths, the strength of the reinforced subgrade soil considerably increased with respect to virgin soil. The confined structure of plastic waste geocell shows significant strength improvement compared to plastic waste geogrid. The result shows that the significant improvement in strength of soil using geogrid and geocell was effective at a particular depth. This study reveals that the use of plastic waste for improving subgrade soil strength is a good option. The plastic waste can be utilised in pavement construction as well as it can be the cost-effective solution.

Abstract

Infrastructure development is important for developing country like India. Road construction plays a major role in it. Hence, good quality roads are necessary for any type of infrastructure development. Flexible pavements are divided in to layers, which consists of subgrade layer (soil as a foundation), sub-base layer, base course layer and surface course layer (bituminous layer). If any layer becomes unstable or weak, it may lead to failure of the pavement. It is observed that, sometimes pavements fail due to low strength of subgrade soil .The subgrade soil is internal part of the pavement. Hence, sound understanding of the properties of soil subgrade is essential for designing a pavement. The properties of soil can be modified by mixing the fiber rein for cements in the subgrade soil. Natural fibers like coir, jute, bamboo have been used to change the index properties of soil. The expansive soil which is also known as problematic soil was selected for the study. Pavement construction on such type of soil is a major problem. In this paper, coir fibres are used as reinforcement and its effects on the various index properties, i.e. Optimum Moisture Content (OMC), Maximum Dry Density (MDD), Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS), Swell Pressure and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) are studied. The study also includes effect of percentage reinforcement on the subgrade soil for the pavement design. The pavement design for soil and coir fiber mixture results in to decrease the thickness of subgrade layer.

Abstract

Even though water is abundantly available, the quantity of water available for direct use is very limited. At the another side, the quality of available water is also deteriorating because daily activities of human increase the load of pollutants which deteriorated the quality of surface as well as ground water also. Ultimately results in the reduction of usable quantity and quality of water. Moreover, water bodies such as lake is used for storage of water but in India, people dump their wastes in lakes which results into eutrophication of lake. Research was conducted on the lake water of Ambapur (unlined-rural) and Bopal (lined-urban) where water is available in large quantities but at the same time it is not useful for domestic purpose. Which lead to an adverse impact on biotic and abiotic environment of the surrounding area of particular place. Various tests (physical, chemical and biological) were performed to determine the extent of the pollutants and the viable ways to reduce this pollution were explored. Emphasis were made to inculcate more of the locally available materials which would result in a sustainable as well as cost-effective solution. Thus, in this research several experiments were conducted for the treatment of lake water with the usage of vetiver grass, conventional sand, rice husk, coconut fibers, activated carbon, oysters and moringa seeds. These layers will remove most of the impurities and pollutants form the contaminated lake water and tests were again performed to check whether the water is useful for domestic purpose or not? The results shows that this treatment methods can remove most of the pollutants and also the treatment is very economical as this method uses locally available materials.

Abstract

Flood is natural disaster which is occurring in almost every part of the country. Total of 30 years (1985-2016) hydrological data has been given as an input to the model study. In order to run HEC-HMS model for assessment of flood at Surat outlet of Tapi river basin the input such as Rainfall, soil map and land use/land cover map required are extracted from soil. The hydrology of the area is characterised by high interaction between ground water and surface water. Input files were prepared using HEC-GeoHMS and later imported to HEC-HMS along with the meteorological and hydrological data to calculate run-off at the watershed outlet. Analysis was carried out in HEC-HMS to determine peak stream flow and occurrence time. SCS (Soil Conservation service) method can be used for flood stimulation in HEC-HMS. From the values of R2 (coefficient of determination) and from stimulated Qpeak (discharge) and observed Qpeak the flood model can be derived in HEC-HMS. Satellite image of area near Tapi region is selected and with the help of software we could analyse the flood prone areas. Parameters like population Density, resources availability, Elevation of geographical area, etc. database can be collected using GIS. Software like ArcGIS can be used to get the data of flood. From the data obtained using HEC-HMS and GIS the area of surat are divided into High risk and Low risk zones. Based on this study it will be helpful in identification of low lying & flood prone areas in Surat city and also helpful in Surat urban planning near Tapi River.

Abstract

The quality of river water is enfeebling day by day due act of increasing urbanization and industrialization in Ahmedabad city. The surface and sub-surface water samples were collected from different locations along the length of Sabarmati river. In this study water samples from six different sites namely Sant-sarovar, Gandhi Bridge, Vasna Barrage, Vasna-Narol Bridge, Miroli Pumping station and Vautha Bridge along the Sabarmati river basin were collected and numerous physical test like pH, turbidity, temperature, electrical conductivity, TDS and chemical test like alkalinity, chloride content, sulphate content, hardness, BOD, COD, Dissolved Oxygen and biological test such as E-coli and total Coliform were performed to determine WQI (Water Quality Index) of the Sabarmati river. WQI is one of the most effective tools to communicate information on the quality of water to the concerned citizens and policy makers or water resource managers. Water Quality Index allows for a general analysis of water quality on many levels that affect a stream’s ability to host life and whether the overall quality of water bodies poses a potential threat to various uses of water. The results of each test is graphically represented for simplification. The sites located in highly urban area showed the worst water quality followed by the station located in moderately urban area and lastly station located in a moderately rural area. Water quality index combines all the different water quality parameter and communicates the facts to the individuals concerned. The main cause of deterioration in water quality at these monitoring stations was due to the high anthropogenic activities, illegal discharge of sewage and industrial effluent, lack of proper sanitation, unprotected river sites, and urban runoff.

Abstract

This research developed a small-scale flood model that integrates Geographic Information and hydrological models. HEC-RAS model helped in simulation and to develop a relationship between runoff and rainfall in Banas River, Gujarat, India. Banas River has been taken as the study area because it is a region which was mostly flooded and having a severe effect on the Gujarat 2017 flood. This model compromises two models, a rainfall-runoff model that converts rainfall excess to surface flow and river runoff, and a second model as a hydraulic model that covers unsteady state flow through the river channel network. In HEC-RAS model, new GIS tool RAS Mapper has been used which is compatible with GIS facilities and modelling has been done with this tool. Results are also available in different parameters such as flood inundation depth, flood water velocity and time. Validation of the model is important, the results at the end of the simulation were compared with the previous observed flood water level data from past flood events in a particular fixed location. The results of this research will benefit in flood management and also used in future modelling for flood disaster forecasts.

Abstract

Corrosion is the degradation of a metal by an electrochemical reaction with its surrounding environment. The corrosion of embedded steel reinforcement in concrete causes durability issue in reinforced concrete structures and cement concrete pavements. The impact of corrosion of embedded steel rebars on the performance of reinforced concrete structures and pavements is a subject of concern for the engineers and scientists working in the construction industry. One of the effective ways of studying such influence is to understand the effect of corrosion on the mechanical and durability properties of concrete. The bond strength between steel rebar and concrete is also an important parameter of study. This study focuses on probing the effect of corrosion on bond strength and other mechanical properties of reinforced concrete. A pull-out test was conducted on 18 concrete cube specimens having steel bars of 12 and 16 mm diameter Fe500 grade. These bars were corroded with the help of commercial grade hydrochloric acid solution 10% v/v. Each group of bar specimens included three levels of corrosion: 0, 3 and 5%. Tension test on steel bars and compression test for concrete cubes were conducted.

Abstract

Infrastructure development is important for developing country like India. Road construction plays a major role in it. Hence, good quality roads are necessary for any type of infrastructure development. Flexible pavements are divided in to layers, which consists of subgrade layer (soil as a foundation), sub-base layer, base course layer and surface course layer (bituminous layer). If any layer becomes unstable or weak, it may lead to failure of the pavement. It is observed that, sometimes pavements fail due to low strength of subgrade soil .The subgrade soil is internal part of the pavement. Hence, sound understanding of the properties of soil subgrade is essential for designing a pavement. The properties of soil can be modified by mixing the fiber rein for cements in the subgrade soil. Natural fibers like coir, jute, bamboo have been used to change the index properties of soil. The expansive soil which is also known as problematic soil was selected for the study. Pavement construction on such type of soil is a major problem. In this paper, coir fibres are used as reinforcement and its effects on the various index properties, i.e. Optimum Moisture Content (OMC), Maximum Dry Density (MDD), Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS), Swell Pressure and California Bearing Ratio (CBR) are studied. The study also includes effect of percentage reinforcement on the subgrade soil for the pavement design. The pavement design for soil and coir fiber mixture results in to decrease the thickness of subgrade layer.

Abstract

Abstract. The subgrade soil is integral part of pavements which provides support to the pavement. The behaviour of road surface depends on strength of filling material and the subgrade below it. The pavements are vulnerably affected by change in subgrade soil properties due to water table fluctuation, overloading, flooding etc. This study focuses on improving the strength of soil subgrade using plastic waste soil reinforcement technique in pavement construction, looking to the current environmental issue related to utilization of plastic waste as plastic is non-biodegradable material. Geocells and geogrids were prepared from plastic waste and used as a soil reinforcement. The plastic waste geocell and geogrid were placed at different depth from top of CBR mould. The CBR test was performed for unsoaked condition of virgin soil and reinforced soil and the behaviour of load versus penetration was observed. The results shows that by placing plastic waste reinforcement at different depth, the strength of reinforced subgrade soil considerably increased with respect to virgin soil. The Confined structure of plastic waste geocell shows significant strength improvement compare to plastic waste geogrid. The result shows that the significant improvement in strength of soil using geogrid and geocell ware effective at particular depth. This study reveals that use of plastic waste for improving subgrade soil strength is a good option. The plastic waste can be utilized in pavement as well as it can be the cost effective solution.

Abstract

Abstract—In India, the development of urban area is running very fast. The infrastructure development includes the roads and building construction. There are many challenges and issues occur during the pavement construction. The subgrade soil is an integral part of pavements which provides support to the pavement. If the pavements are founded on expansive soil, it will damaged severely by the alternate swelling and shrinkage behavior of such soil. We can control the damage by applying proper soil stabilization methods for expansive soil. The aim of the work presented in this paper is to study the modification in index properties of expansive soil using natural fiber as a soil reinforcement and blasting sand separately. The expansive soil samples were collected from two different city of Gujarat state. The coir fiber is used as a natural fiber. The coir fibers were mixed randomly with soil and the index properties like swelling pressure, unconfined compressive strength, shear strength, maximum dry density and optimum moisture content of soil were studied. Similarly the blasting sand was mixed with expansive soil and index properties like liquid limit, plastic limit, optimum moisture content, maximum dry density, unconfined compressive strength and free swell index were studied. The proportion of coir fiber and blasting sand were added as 0.2%, 0.4%, 0.6%,0.8% and 9%,11%,13%, 15% respectively by dry weight of expansive soil. The index properties were modified and gave considerable results.

Abstract

ABSTRACT: Chemical grouting is a soil stabilization technique with different chemicals being used to fulfill requirements of field applications, where particulate grouts cannot fulfill the criteria of particle size and viscosity requirements. Sodium silicate based grouts are most popular grouts used due to their low cost, ease of availability, handling without any special requirements and environmental compatibility. These grouts fulfill a good gap between extremely expansive low viscosity polymer based grouts and cement based grouts being best suited for treating fine cracks with dimensions ranging from 1 to 0.1mm. The paper presents research work intended towards design of an economical, non toxic chemical grout using sodium silicate as base, polymeric acid as a catalyst, mineral acid as an additive, and hardener to control strength and setting characteristics. The strength of prepared grout was checked for different environmental conditions to check strength parameter in different environmental condition

Abstract

In India, the fast-growing cities are facing sedate problems of traffic congestion due to the unprecedented urbanization in the last few decades. To give mobility of high populace density, these cities usually rely on multi-modal transit services, including private and public modes. Public transport plays an important role in building up the transportation structure. Effective implementation of public transport greatly depends on the accessibility of transit station about the urban region. This study presents the approach for the relocation of the transit station based on an evaluation of spatial accessibility to BRT stations in the environment of Geographical Information System (GIS) for Ahmedabad City. In GIS the service area and distance-decay analysis tools were used to find the most appropriate BRT station location. The study was performed on three selected corridors consisting of 27 BRT stations. Field data collected includes distance among the bus stations, distance from bus stations to intersection, on walking distance of commuter to the bus station and commuters’ characteristic like age, gender, type of employment, purpose of trip, mode of travel, time is taken to reach station and income from immediate neighborhood from board and off-board commuters. Analysis showed that relocating BRT station, results increase in the service area and that leads to commuter ridership. It was observed that relocating the station also changed the approachable population densities of the respective station. After relocating the current stations, the population density or commuter ridership increased by average 60% for 0-150 m radius, 150-400 m increased by 35% and 400-600 m increased by an average of 20% with respect to six (6) stations of the three study corridors. This result would help BRTS operators and BRTS operating authorities to take a decision about BRT station location suitability. Thus, it is recommended to consider the population densities and accessibility also t

Title of PaperPost-yield Damping Ratio Estimation Studies for Masonry-Infilled Reinforced Concrete Frames

Published YearDecember 2019

Indexed INScopus

Abstract

Damping ratio is an important and central parameter for the dynamic analysis of structures. The present study focuses on the estimation of the equivalent damping ratio in a post-yield region for RC frames, both with and without infills. One-story one-bay RC frames casted non-integrally with fly ash (FA) bricks and autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) blocks infills are considered and are tested under monotonic lateral half-cycle loading. Post-yield behavior parameters, displacement ductility and maximum drift ratio, are used to estimate the equivalent damping ratio at each cycle of lateral loading, and empirical relationships are established. Secant stiffness and stiffness degradation for RC frames are also extracted to determine the contribution and effectiveness of type of infills. Free vibration tests on RC frame specimens are conducted subsequent to each cycle of monotonic lateral loading, and the damping ratio is evaluated. It is found that the equivalent damping ratio substantially increases for RC frames with the onset of damage in the post-yield region. The major advantage of the infilled RC frame is a drastic reduction in the maximum drift ratio. However, types of infill are found to yield equivalent damping ratio at par, suggesting similar energy dissipation capabilities. RC frame infilled with AAC block is recommended due to its higher initial as well as secant stiffness vis-a`-vis FA brick-infilled RC frames and higher stiffness degradation that allows it to behave similar to RC frame without infill.

Abstract

Structural elements and systems used in spacecraft and antenna structures are flexible and light in weight. Vibration in flexible structures may produce secondary effects in it and affect the performance. Therefore, it is important to control structural response of flexible structures. This can be achieved by either Passive control or Active control. It has been found that active control of flexible structures may lead to instability, if there is an error in feedback control. In such situations passive control of flexible structures coated with thin viscoelastic material offers promise. Apart, smart materials like Piezoelectric Ceramic Powder, Magnetorheological Fluids etc. are potential alternatives. In present study cantilever structure made up of aluminum material is considered. Bare specimen is coated with Piezoelectric Ceramic Powder. Acceleration is captured using Data Acquisition System and LabVIEW through Free vibration test. Results shows piezoelectric powder coating increases damping into the system.

Abstract

Earthquake is a natural hazard that causes damage or sometimes complete collapse of man-made structures. It is measured as ground excitation with acceleration and time data points measured at various locations through digital instruments. All ground excitations measured do have potential to cause damage to the structures but strong ground motion do. Strong Ground Motion is characterized by various parameters like Peak Ground Acceleration (PGA), Frequency Content, Root Mean Square (RMS) Acceleration, Arias Intensity and Duration of strong ground motion. Strong ground excitations poses varied seismic demand on structures. In the present study, out of 184 ground motions recorded at 23 recording stations of Indian subcontinent, about 67 ground motions are quantified as strong ground motion based on PGA and Duration of the motion. Response Spectrum for each strong ground excitation is developed. A mean, mean plus one standard deviation and maximum response spectrum are developed for each strong ground motion using statistical analysis. Seismic demand posed by each response spectrum and IS specified design spectrum on four storey Reinforced Concrete (RC) shear frame building are evaluated. Comparison among seismic demand represented by peak acceleration and base shear are carried out. It is found that seismic demand posed by IS specified design spectrum for building is quite high as compared to mean response spectrum. Similar results are obtained for mean plus one standard deviation and maximum response spectrum except few strong ground motions that posed high seismic demand on building as compared to IS specified design spectrum.

Abstract

Construction of tall and flexible structures has become easier now-a-days because of advances in analytical techniques and availability of more efficient materials. However, these structures are more sensitive towards dynamic loadings. Dynamic response of such structures under various excitations can be quantified by displacement and acceleration response time history. Excessive dynamic response of structure leads to substantial damage to the structural components and hence it need to be controlled. Passively, this is achieved by adding either mass or stiffness or both of them. This paper covers experimental study on controlling dynamic response of a building model using two types of bracings, namely, Concentric- and Eccentric bracing. A building model is fabricated using aluminum flats and plates and bracings are fabricated using linear springs of moderate stiffness. A model represented as Single Degree of Freedom (SDOF) system is subjected to sinusoidal excitations of various frequencies through small scale shake table. Acceleration response of a uncontrolled building model (model without bracings) is obtained using accelerometers and Data Acquisition System (DAQ) – LabVIEW 8.0. Displacement response is derived through numerical integration from acceleration response using LabVIEW. Acceleration and displacement response of controlled building model (model with bracings) are extracted and compared with uncontrolled system. Dynamic properties like Natural Time Period and Damping Ratio for both types of bracing systems are obtained and comparisons are made among them. It is found that natural time period and damping ratio of controlled building model is increased as compared to uncontrolled system due to stiffness addition. Displacement and Acceleration response are reduced appropriately for controlled system as compared to uncontrolled system.

Abstract

t Instantaneous Optimal Control is used to obtain desired force from MR damper fitted to a seismically excited building. Excitation is considered when minimizing performance index, unlike in classical optimal controllers. Modified Bouc-Wen damper model and on-off voltage law is considered. Various forms of state weighting matrix are considered for controller design. IOC is compared with LQR/LQG and PON control. It yields reduction in: maximum peak interstorey drift; and generally in accelerations vis-a-vis LQR/LQG. IOCSF Riccati Matrix Type controller appears most effective, yielding: lowest maximum peak drift/acceleration and generally best storeywise drift control vis-a-vis PON/LQR/LQG; substantially lower peak accelerations vis-a-vis LQR/LQG.

Abstract

Analysis and Design of berthing structures seems to be a new subject to common structural engineers, but they are the important structures contributing to the development of trade in our nation. The paper is focusing on analysis and design of 12th Cargo Berth at Kandla, which is open piled structure with retaining wall at the land side and lying in high seismic zone V. The berth is to be designed for a vessel having capacity of 75,000 DWT and the structure is supported on Bored cas-in situ piles. The structure is subjected to various forces and combinations such as cyclone, high tide, earthquake,high winds, heavy live loads as per IS: 4651 – 1983. A 3-D model was generated using STAAD-Pro software and analysis was conducted with appropriate loads acting on the structure. It was observed that seismic force was governing in most of the case because of Kandla being located in high seismic zone V. The paper is an attempt to understand the behavior of offshore structures under different conditions of loading and also, an effect of seismicity on the structures.

Abstract

Conventionally, seismic design of building structures is based on the concept of increasing the resistance capacity of the structures against earthquakes by employing, Shear walls, Braced frames or MR frames. However, the periods of vibrations of above mentioned structures are primary tools in determining seismic response. The period of vibration of structures is highly varied in nature depending upon its determination approach. This paper is an attempt to focus the issue of variation of time period determination from empirical formulas to software model implementation. In this paper a small R.C.C. Building of G + 4 size has been taken and different modeling aspects were applied to evaluate the difference in time period of the building. Based on the evaluated time periods the equivalent static lateral loads on the building were also estimated and distributed along the height of the building. The software used to model the R.C.C. building is ETABS Nonlinear Version 8.11. Lastly, a comparison of time periods for different types of model and base shear were also obtained. Overall, the paper is a modest attempt to bring in front the basic issues of obtaining time period for correct evaluation of seismic response of R.C.C. buildings, which felt missing.

Abstract

The present study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of externally bonded stainless steel wire mesh (SSWM) in enhancing the shear strength of reinforced concrete (RC) flanged beams with T-shape cross-section. To identify appropriate SSWM as a strengthening material, tension test and bond test are performed on five locally available SSWM. An experimental investigation is conducted to study the behaviour of RC T-beams strengthened by externally bonded 40 × 32 type SSWM under transverse loading. Two beams are considered as control specimen, and four beams are externally strengthened by two different wrapping configurations. All beams are tested under the two-point loading until failure. Results of experimental investigation, in terms of cracking load, ultimate load, deflection, prove the effectiveness of SSWM in shear strengthening of beams. The numerical model of controlled and SSWM strengthened T-beam specimen is also developed using finite element based software ABAQUS to validate experimental results.

Abstract

This paper presents the outcome of the experimental program conducted to incorporate the Nanoparticles in the pervious concrete for the purpose of water purification and improvement in the strength. The Nanoparticles are small objects that behave as filler for the porosity of concrete, which helps to increase the strength of concrete and maintain the perviousness of concrete. This perviousness of pervious concrete helps to purify the contaminated water also. Three Nanoparticles Zinc Oxide (ZnO), Charcoal and Manganese Dioxide (MnO2) are used in the present experimental program. The quality of the water is checked by the tests such as Hardness test, pH test, turbidity test, Porosity and Permeability test perform to check the inherent property of pervious concrete and compressive strength test performs to check the improvement of Pervious concrete. The result shows charcoal provide good results for water purification and improvement of strength as comparing other two Nanoparticles.

Abstract

Corrosion is the degradation of a metal by an electrochemical reaction with its surrounding environment. The corrosion of embedded steel reinforcement in concrete causes durability issue in reinforced concrete structures and cement concrete pavements. The impact of corrosion of embedded steel rebars on the performance of reinforced concrete structures and pavements is a subject of concern for the engineers and scientists working in the construction industry. One of the effective ways of studying such influence is to understand the effect of corrosion on the mechanical and durability properties of concrete. The bond strength between steel rebar and concrete is also an important parameter of study. This study focuses on probing the effect of corrosion on bond strength and other mechanical properties of reinforced concrete. A pull-out test was conducted on 18 concrete cube specimens having steel bars of 12 and 16 mm diameter Fe500 grade. These bars were corroded with the help of commercial grade hydrochloric acid solution 10% v/v. Each group of bar specimens included three levels of corrosion: 0, 3 and 5%. Tension test on steel bars and compression test for concrete cubes were conducted
