  • The effect of shrinkage cracks on the load bearing capacity of steel-fibre-reinforced roller-compacted-concrete pavements. 

    Jafarifar, Naeimeh; Pilakoutas, Kypros; Bennett, Terry (Springer https://dx.doi.org/10.1617/s11527-015-0652-0, 2015-06-25)
    JAFARIFAR, N., PILAKOUTAS, K. and BENNETT, T. 2015. The effect of shrinkage cracks on the load bearing capacity of steel-fibre-reinforced roller-compacted-concrete pavements. Materials and structues [online], 49(6), pages 2329-2347. Available from: https://dx.doi.org/10.1617/s11527-015-0652-0
    This paper demonstrates the effect of shrinkage cracks on the static load bearing capacity and on the fatigue performance of RCC pavements reinforced with steel fibres recycled from post-consumer tyres, with the aid of a ...
  • The effect of strong ambient winds on the efficiency of solar updraft power towers: a numerical case study for Orkney. 

    Jafarifar, Naeimeh; Behzadi, Mohammad Martin; Yaghini, Mohammad (Elsevier https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2019.01.058, 2019-01-16)
    JAFARIFAR, N., BEHZADI, M.M. and YAGHINI, M. 2019. The effect of strong ambient winds on the efficiency of solar updraft power towers: a numerical case study for Orkney. Renewable energy [online], In Press. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.renene.2019.01.058
    Solar updraft tower (SUT) is a simple power plant in which ventilation of heated air inside a channel drives a turbine. This system is recognised as suitable for areas with abundant solar radiation. As a result, there is ...
  • Moisture transport and drying shrinkage properties of steel-fibre-reinforced-concrete. 

    Jafarifar, Naeimeh; Pilakoutas, Kypros; Bennett, Terry (Elsevier https://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.conbuildmat.2014.09.039, 2014-10-13)
    JAFARIFAR, N., PILAKOUTAS, K. and BENNETT, T. 2014. Moisture transport and drying shrinkage properties of steel-fibre-reinforced-concrete. Construction and building materials [online], 73, pages 41-50. Available from: https://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.conbuildmat.2014.09.039
    Drying shrinkage has a serious impact on the structural and durability performance of concrete pavements. Shrinkage strain development and distress can only be fully understood by knowing the moisture transport and free ...
  • Post-cracking tensile behaviour of steel-fibre-reinforced roller-compacted-concrete for FE modelling and design purposes. 

    Jafarifar, Naeimeh; Pilakoutas, Kypros; Angelakopoulos, Harris; Bennett, Terry (IETcc-CSIC https://doi.org/10.3989/mc.2017.06716, 2017-03-22)
    JAFARIFAR, N., PILAKOUTAS, K., ANGELAKOPOULOS, H. and BENNETT, T. 2017. Post-cracking tensile behaviour of steel-fibre-reinforced roller-compacted-concrete for FE modelling and design purposes. Materiales de construccion [online], 67(326), article ID e122. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3989/mc.2017.06716.
    Fracture of steel-fibre-reinforced-concrete occurs mostly in the form of a smeared crack band undergoing progressive microcracking. For FE modelling and design purposes, this crack band could be characterised by a stress-strain ...
  • Shrinkage behaviour of SFRC industrial ground floors. 

    Jafarifar, Naeimeh; Sabbagh, Alireza Bagheri (University of Aberdeen, 2015-08-26)
    JAFARIFAR, N. and SABBAGH, A.B. 2015. Shrinkage behaviour of SFRC industrial ground floors. In the Proceedings of the 35th Cement and concrete science conference (CCSC35), 26-28 August 2015, Aberdeen, UK.
    Restrained shrinkage is an important issue in design of concrete industrial ground floors, although it is often overlooked. This paper studies shrinkage behaviour of a SFRC floor subjected to static racking load, through ...
