Influence of Steel and Bamboo Fibres on Mechanical Properties of High Strength Concrete
Awoyera, P.O.; Ijalana, G.K.; Babalola, O.E.
Published at Journal of Materials and Environmental Science , Volume 6 , Issue 12 , Pages 3634-3642 , Published in 2015
This paper evaluated the influence of steel and bamboo fibres on high strength concrete. Samples of concrete cubes, beams and cylinders cast with varying proportions of steel and bamboo fibres were subjected to compression, flexural and splitting tensile strength tests respectively. A total of sixty three cubes of 100mm x 100mm x 100mm, fourteen beams of 100mm x 100mm x 500mm, and cylinders of...
Strength Characteristics of Concrete Beams Reinforced with Steel Bars of Equivalent
Adekeye, A.W.; Awoyera, P.O.
Published at Research Journal of Applied Sciences Engineering and Technology , Volume 11 , Issue 7 , Pages 765-769 , Published in 2015
Contractors occasionally substitute reinforcement bars during construction works, perhaps as a result of unavailability of the design-specified bars. As a result, this study have explored the basis, extent and the conditions for the mutual substitution of reinforcing bar groups of equivalent area but different bar diameters in reinforced concrete beams. A total of (20) concrete beams includi...
Numerical Modelling of Retrofitted Reinforced Concrete Building Frames
Afolayan, J. O.; Babalola, O. E.; Awoyera, P. O.; Adekeye, A. W.; Ishola, F. A.
Published at Research Journal of Applied Sciences Engineering and Technology , Volume 12 , Issue 2 , Pages 206-213 , Published in 2016
This study presents an overview and investigates the adequacy of the retrofit concept used in the reinforced concrete building frame of a distressed office building complex. The retrofit assessed consists of steel members welded together to form a steel frame with a reinforced concrete beam as base, acting as support for two floor slabs and roof truss of the building. Reinforced concrete bui...
Simulated Combined Earthquake and Dead Load Lateral Resistance Building Systems using Nigeria Seismic Data
Awoyera, P.O.; Ogundeji, J. F.; Aderonmu, P. A.
Published at Journal of materials and environmental science , Volume 7 , Issue 3 , Pages 781-789 , Published in 2016
This study investigated the effects of combined earthquake and dead load on a simulated lateral load resistance building systems. An eight-floor level steel building was modelled in SAP2000, and analysed using seismic information obtained from an earthquake which occurred at Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria. The study was based on a selected magnitude of earthquake by considering the highest magni...
Parametric Measures for Design Workspace Adequacy of Selected Institutions in Nigeria
P. A. Aderonmu; P. O. Awoyera; S. A. Amole; O. M. Olofinnade; A. W. Adekeye
Published at ARPN Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences , Volume 11 , Issue 3 , Pages 2105-2119 , Published in 2016
Architectural or Engineering design workspace is an arena where denominator activities takes place, however its adequacy has been neglected over the years. This study focused on parametric measures to ascertain design workspace adequacy of selected institutions in Nigeria. Questionnaires with multiple-choice and open-ended questions were administered to undergraduate and postgraduate archite...
Suitability of Cordia millenii Ash Blended Cement in Concrete Production
Babalola, OE; Awoyera, PO
Published at International Journal of Engineering Research in Africa , Volume 22 , Pages 59-67 , Published in 2016
Supplementary cementitious materials are most needed to enhance a sustainable development in poor communities. It is pertinent to investigate the suitability of such alternative materials for construction. The present study evaluates the strength characteristics of concrete made with varied proportion of Cordia millenii ash blended with Portland cement. Chemical composition of Cordia millenii a...
