Cyclic Performance of High Strength Concrete Beams Reinforced with Hexagonal Wire Mesh

S. Mardi, and M. Bastami. “Cyclic Performance of High Strength Concrete Beams Reinforced with Hexagonal Wire Mesh.” Engineering Structures (ready for submission.) The brittle behavior of high strength concrete (HSC) has limited its use in ductile structural elements. The target of the following research is based on developing a novel reinforcing techniques using hexagonal wire […]
