S.T.A. DATA 3Muri Pro v11.0.0.10 [Size: 158 MB] ... 3Muri is a software for analysis of structures built in masonry and mixed materials through a non-linear (pushover) and static analysis. The strengths of 3Muri is its innovative computation method (FME) that is able to give more information on the structure’s real behaviour to seismic actions, aside an extreme simplicity of use. 3Muri offers a drawing area for insertion of the structure with intuitive controls, an engine for the creation of computation models and their solutions, and a post-processor for immediate presentation of the results and creation of the computation report.
3Muri was created by a joint project of S.T.A. DATA and the research group headed by Professor Sergio Lagomarsino, from the Construction Technique department of Genova University. Along with other specialists (eng. Andrea Penna and eng. Alessandro Galasco from Pavia’s Eucentre, and eng. Serena Cattari, Genova University) they finalized the theoretical aspects of 3Muri through laboratory’s experiments and analysis on real structures. That continuous collaboration guarantee an always updated software, completely operative and reliable for the most professional requirement.

Nasim Uddin ... 448 pages - Publisher: Woodhead Publishing; 1st edition (March, 2010) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 184569399X - ISBN-13: 978-1845693992 ...

With the upsurge in terrorism in recent years and the possibility of accidental blast threats, there is growing interest in manufacturing blast ‘hardened’ structures and retrofitting blast mitigation materials to existing structures. Composites provide the ideal material for blast protection as they can be engineered to give different levels of protection by varying the reinforcements and matrices. Part one discusses general technical issues with chapters on topics such as blast threats and types of blast damage, processing polymer matrix composites for blast protection, standards and specifications for composite blast protection materials, high energy absorbing composite materials for blast resistant design, modelling the blast response of hybrid laminated composite plates and the response of composite panels to blast wave pressure loadings. Part two reviews applications including ceramic matrix composites for ballistic protection of vehicles and personnel, using composites to protect military vehicles from mine blasts, blast protection of buildings using FRP matrix composites, using composites in blast resistant walls for offshore, naval and defence related structures, using composites to improve the blast resistance of columns in buildings, retrofitting using fibre reinforced polymer composites for blast protection of buildings and retrofitting to improve the blast response of concrete masonry walls. With its distinguished editor and team of expert contributors, Blast protection of civil infrastructures and vehicles using composites is a standard reference for all those concerned with protecting structures from the effects of blasts in both the civil and military sectors. Reviews the role of composites in blast protection with an examination of technical issues, applications of composites and ceramic matrix composites * Presents numerical examples of simplified blast load computation and an overview of the basics of high explosives includes important properties and physical forms * Varying applications of composites for protection are explored including military and non-military vehicles and increased resistance in building columns and masonry walls.

Modern fastening techniques are increasingly being used to transfer loads into concrete and masonry structures. In spite of this fact knowledge of the behaviour of such systems is very limited and there is no generally accepted design method.

This book has been written by a group of eminent authors from western Europe, Canada, the USA and Japan and with the specific aim of: Compiling and comparing published research on the behaviour of fastening systems; proposing a consistent approach to the design of fastenings based on current empirical and theoretical models; and developing design methods that account for the effects of fastenings to concrete and masonry structures for all types of load including monotonic, sustained, fatigue, seismic and impact loads as well as the influences of environmental effects.

In this report, the behaviour of fastenings in concrete and masonry for the entire range of loading types, as well as the influence of the environmental effects, is reviewed, based on experimental results from various parts of the world. The existing design approaches are compared with the available experimental data, and a consistent design method is recommended.

The publication is applicable to both new constructions and the repair and strengthening of existing structures.

Widely used in the construction of bridges, dams and pavements, concrete and masonry are two of the world’s most utilized construction materials. However, many engineers lack a proper understanding of the methods for predicting and mitigating their movements within a structure. Concrete and Masonry Movements provides practical methods for predicting and preventing movement in concrete and masonry, saving time and money in retrofitting and repair cost. With this book in hand, engineers will discover new prediction models for masonry such as: irreversible moisture expansion of clay bricks, elasticity, creep and shrinkage. In addition, the book provides up-to-date information on the codes of practice.
    Provides mathematical modelling tools for predicting movement in masonry * Up-to-date knowledge of codes of practice methods * Clearly explains the factors influencing all types of concrete and masonry movement * Fully worked out examples and set problems are included at the end of each chapter.
