A new finite element (FE) model was constructed with ABAQUS, and the applicability of the model was verified by the coincidence with typical damage modes and load-compression curves in the tests, and the axial compression performance of the precast circular semi-continuous concrete-filled steel tube (PCSCFST) columns was investigated. The effects of diameter-thickness ratio, slenderness ratio, yield strength, etc. on the axial compression performance of the PCSCFST columns were investigated by parametric analysis. The changes in slenderness ratio, yield strength and diameter-thickness ratio
As the most comprehensive document types for the recording and display of real-world information regarding construction projects, 3D realistic models are capable of recording and displaying simultaneously textures and geometric shapes in the same 3D scene. However, at present, the documentation for much of construction infrastructure faces significant challenges. Based on TLS, GNSS/IMU, mature photogrammetry, a UAV platform, computer vision technologies, and AI algorithms, this study proposes a workflow for 3D modeling of complex structures with multiple-source data. A deep learning LoFTR n
Designing and constructing near zero energy buildings (NZEBs) is a challenge not only from a structural point of view, but also from the point of view of ensuring appropriate climate comfort for users. The standards describing how to ensure comfort were created in times when the challenges of building ZEB/NZEB were not yet explored and energy issues were not as important as they are today. Therefore, the assessment of the thermal and climatic comfort of people living and working in such buildings requires a new or revised approach to the methodology of thermal comfort assessment. In this ar
With the gradual and widespread application of blockchain technology in the supply chain, its characteristics can help solve the financing problem of MSMEs. To this end, this paper constructs a cooperative game model for suppliers, manufacturers and retailers in the case of a cross-level guarantee of order-to-factoring, studies the pricing strategy of supply chain finance members based on blockchain technology by adopting the Stackelberg primary-secondary game method, and makes a reasonable allocation of total supply chain revenue with the help of the Shapley value of the cooperative game.
To investigate freeze–thaw cycle effects on the energy dissipation and strength characteristics of cement soils under impact loading, impact compression tests were carried out using a split Hopkinson pressure bar on cement soils under various freeze–thaw cycles (0, 1, 3, 6 and 10 times). The Zhu–Wang–Tang (ZWT) model was modified to predict the relationship between deformation and strength in cement soils under various test conditions. The obtained test results revealed that the freeze–thaw cycle number and impact pressure had significant effects on the fractal dimension, strength
