Use of Advanced Plastic Materials in Nigeria: Performance Assessment of Expanded Polystyrene Building Technology System
Anthony Nkem Ede(PhD), Valentine Alegiuno and Paul Oluwaseun Awoyera
Published at American Journal of Engineering Research (AJER) , Volume 3 , Issue 4 , Pages 17-23 , Published in 2014
The provision of affordable residential houses for the masses in the developing nations has been a mirage over the years and the future does not portend good as the cost of adopting conventional concrete material technologies is escalating while so many environmental issues like climate change are being raised in the recent times.To circumvent this poor housing provision trend, some innovative...
Forensic Investigation of Fire-affected Reinforced Concrete Buildings
Awoyera, P.O., Akinwumi, I.I., Ede, A.N., Olofinnade, M.O.
Published at IOSR Journal of Mechanical and Civil Engineering (IOSR-JMCE) , Volume 11 , Issue 4 , Pages 17-23 , Published in 2014
This study focused on forensic investigation of fire-affected reinforced concrete buildings. Post-fire investigation was conducted on structural elements in three selected fire-affected concrete buildings, in order to ascertain their in situ residual strengths and also to provide data for use in future assessment of fire-affected buildings. The selected sites for investigation include a five-st...
Structural Evaluation of Lightweight Concrete Produced Using Waste Newspaper and Office Paper
4. Akinwumi, I.I., Olatunbosun, O.M., Olofinnade, O.M., Awoyera, P.O.
Published at Civil and Environmental Research , Volume 6 , Issue 7 , Pages 160 - 167 , Published in 2014
The construction industry consumes a large amount of non-renewable resources. On the other hand, more waste paper ends up in landfill or dump sites than those recycled. Consequently, recycling waste paper for use as a construction material constitutes a step towards sustainable development. This research effort aims at determining the density, water absorption capacity, compressive strength...
Significance of Concrete Cover to Reinforcement in Structural Elements at Varying Temperatures
Awoyera, P.O., Arum, C., Akinwumi, I.I.
Published at International Journal of Scientific & Engineering Research , Volume 5 , Issue 6 , Pages 1120-1123 , Published in 2014
This paper evaluated the significance of concrete cover for reinforcement in structural elements at varying temperatures. Sixty samples of 320 mm x 150 mm x 100 mm concrete beams reinforced with 10 mm main bars and 6 mm nominal reinforcement were cast in the laboratory in four batches. Each batch contains fifteen samples with concrete cover for reinforcement varied at 10 mm, 15 mm, 20 mm and 25...

Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of Steel Fibre-reinforced Concrete Beam under Static Loading
Awoyera, P. O.
Published at Journal of Engineering Science and Technology , Volume 11 , Issue 12 , Published in 2016
A nonlinear finite element analysis of steel fibre-reinforced concrete beams subjected to static loading was explored using ADINA software. A predefined 3D model of concrete beam of dimension 100 mm×100 mm×500 mm was prepared using the smeared crack approach to fracture of concrete in the mode I; this model simulates a nonlinear response in tension. Stress redistribution was performed by the eq...
Influence of Electric Arc Furnace (EAF) Slag Aggregate Sizes on the Workability and Durability of Concrete
Awoyera, P. O., Adekeye, A. W., and Babalola, O. E.
Published at International Journal of Engineering and Technology , Volume 7 , Issue 3 , Pages 1049 - 1056 , Published in 2015
The construction industry has been identified as one of the largest consumer of nonrenewable resources. Meanwhile, the unused materials are continually disposed in landfills and dumpsites. As a result, adoption of industrial solid wastes for use as a construction material remains pertinent in the creation of a green environment. The present study focused on the influence of EAF steel slag aggre...
