  • Bonded Fibre Reinforced Polymer Strengthening in a Real Fire 

    Stratford, Tim J; Gillie, Martin; Chen, J; Usmani, Asif (Advances in Structural Engineering by Multi Science Publishing, 2010-01)
    FRP strengthening is critically dependent upon the bonding adhesive. The adhesive used is typically an ambient cure epoxy with a glass transition temperature as low as 60ºC. This paper describes the performance of bonded ...
  • Round-robin study of a priori modelling predictions of the Dalmarnock Fire Test One 

    Rein, Guillermo; Torero, Jose L; Jahn, Wolfram; Stern-Gottfried, Jamie; Ryder, Noah; Desanghere, Sylvain; Lazaro, Mariano; Mowrer, Frederick; Coles, Andrew; Joyeux, Daniel; Alvear, Daniel; Capote, Jorge A; Jowsey, Allan; Abecassis Empis, Cecilia; Reszka, Pedro (Fire SafetyJournal - Elsevier, 2009-03)
    An international study of fire modelling was conducted prior to the Dalmarnock Fire Test One in order to assess the state-of-the-art of fire simulations using a round-robin approach. This test forms part of the Dalmarnock ...
  • Small-Scale Forward Smouldering Experiments for Remediation of Coal Tar in Inert Media 

    Pironi, Paolo; Switzer, Christine; Rein, Guillermo; Gerhard, Jason; Torero, Jose L; Fuentes, Andres (Elsevier - Proceedings of the Combustion Institute, 2009-01-01)
    This paper presents a series of experiments conducted to assess the potential of smouldering combustion as a novel technology for remediation of contaminated land by water-immiscible organic compounds. The results from ...
