A series of studies have been conducted on nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete structures, advanced concrete manufacturing, dam construction technology, safety control of concrete structures during construction, construction safety of high-rise buildings, concrete quality through process control, knowledge management, and construction product integrity. RC Zoning Procedure Method: In the field of nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete RC structures, one notable achievement is the quantitative approach for the size effect on behavior of reinforced concrete for shear failure, which precisely predicts seismic response of RC structures.
The RC Zoning Procedure Method was proposed to describe the nonlinear interaction of ductile material reinforced concrete and brittle material plain concrete and damage localization in RC structures. This method was employed in seismic analysis of underground structures in the Great Hanshin earthquake.
Three national patents have been granted with this technology. The RFC technology was found to be beneficial to hydraulic and hydropower construction projects, including enhancement of efficiency, cost reduction and energy conservation. The application of RFC technology in Xiangjiaba hydropower station has been shown to save approximately 30 days of construction, and reduce the direct cost by three million RMB. Safety Control of Concrete Structures: In the field of safety control of concrete structures, the team discovered load re-distribution of concrete structures during construction process, by conducting a continuous monitoring of internal force on site.
A structural characteristic parameter approach was developed, enabling the explanation of in-situ measurement, experiment and approximate calculation. Construction engineers can use this approach to estimate load distributions and make correct decisions to ensure construction safety. Control Method for Steel-Concrete Composite Structures: A quality control method for steel-concrete composite structures was developed.
This method emphasizes control of concrete casting quality in the construction process.
This method was successfully applied in high-rise projects with concrete-filled steel tubular structures in China. Mechanical behavior of concrete-filled stiffened thin-walled steel tubular columns and the stability of the hollow steel tubes during construction were studied.
The research achievements have been introduced to several design codes on steel-concrete composite structures. Semantic Web Technology: The team also applied the Semantic Web Technology in the reasoning and the retrieval of knowledge of construction projects. The team promoted the applications of Building Ination Modeling in the construction industry. The construction collaborative working plat, including structural analysis during construction, site management, document management, drafting management, visual monitoring on construction, visual meeting and decision supporting, was developed and applied in many landmark projects such as the National Stadium, the West Tower of Guangzhou and the Bridge of Qingdao Bay.
The team is conducting a large amount of research in areas such as sustainability, including building life cycle assessment, sustainable construction and sustainable urban development. Based on the achievements, the team also developed an assessment framework for the sustainability, and the 11th and 12th Five Year Plans for the Beijing Construction Committee. Some research outcomes helped project stakeholders to adapt themselves to the dramatic change in the construction industry. The results were published in peer-reviewed journals such as Building and Environment, Construction Economics and Management, etc.
