Investigating the Shear Performance of SC Walls Under Impact Loads

Steel-plate composite (SC) structures consist of infilled concrete between steel faceplates with shear ties connecting the front and back faceplates. Shear ties can be made of bars, rebars, plates, or steel shapes. Currently, there is a tendency in the nuclear...

Undercut Anchors for Structural Applications

Undercut anchors are an ideal post-installed anchor category as their load transfer mechanism is bearing, similar to that of headed studs cast into concrete. Their mechanical interlock prevents the anchor from pulling out and results in high load capacities and small...
