Topic: Structural performance of geopolymer concrete: Shear and flexural behavior of a prestressed girder with cast in-situ topping under short-term loading
Track: Structural Engineering
Description: The structural performance of an individual prestressed girder with a compression layer on top, built in self-compacting geopolymer concrete (SCGC) and subjected to mechanical tests, is studied by analytical methods and 2D plane stress nonlinear finite element analyses, which are further compared to experimental results in terms of deformations, load-deflection response, principal strains, normal stresses, damage evolution, cracking stages, maximum load and failure mechanism.
