Load Damaging Effects of Overloaded Trucks on Federal Highway Pavement Structures in Nigeria

The study’s purpose is to establish Nigeria’s present serviceability rating as well as the consequences of overloaded vehicles on load damage. The researchers employed AASHTO (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials) methodologies. The highway sections of Lokoja-Abuja, Ilorin-Jebba, and Abakiliki-Ogoja through Mbok highways were chosen for this research, and data was acquired using…

Risk Assessment in the Analysis of the Quality of Painting Works

The risks associated with paint and varnish coatings on construction products and structures are discussed. The coating itself, the contact layer, and the substrate are shown as three pieces connected in series in a structural diagram of the reliability of protective and ornamental coatings (plaster). Risk was defined as the probability of an occurrence occurring…

Study on Dynamic Detection of Reinforced Concrete Bridge Damage by Finite Element Model Updating

The purpose of this research is to detect faults in reinforced concrete bridges using an MMUM mathematical model updating approach based on incomplete test data. A suitable finite element model of a repaired bridge is created. The diagnostics can be used to locate and detect problems in a reinforced concrete bridge. As a result, modal…
