Confined site construction: A qualitative investigation of critical issues affecting management of health and safety

  The construction industry is inherently risky, with a significant number of accidents and disasters occurring, particularly on confined construction sites. This research investigates and identifies the various issues affecting successful management of health and safety in confined construction sites. The rationale is that identifying the issues would assist the management of health and safety...

Influence of hybrid fibres on the post crack performance of high strength concrete: Part I experimental investigations

  This paper discusses the experimental results of tests carried out on the flexural properties of various fibre-reinforced concretes at low volume fractions of fibres upto 0.5%. The flexural properties, namely flexural strength, toughness, and ductility, were measured using four point bending tests on beam specimens. Compared to reference concrete without fibres, fibre addition was seen to enhance the pre-peak...
