Effect of temperature and radial displacement cycles on soil?concrete interface properties using modified thermal borehole shear test
( American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) , 2018 , Article)
Thermoactive geostructures (such as energy piles) are used for heating and cooling of buildings, which generate daily temperature changes and cycles in the geostructure and surrounding soil due to the intermittent operation ...
Investigation of effects of temperature cycles on soil-concrete interface behavior using direct shear tests
( Elsevier B.V. , 2019 , Article)
This publication was made possible by NPRP Grant NPRP-9-080-2-039 from Qatar National Research Fund (a member of the Qatar Foundation). L. M. Calado acknowledges Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia ( FCT ) for Ph.D. grant ...
Axial pull-out response of a small-scale concrete pile subjected to cyclic thermal loading in sand
( American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) , 2018 , Conference Paper)
Energy piles support structural loads and exchange heat with surrounding soils using closed-loop ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems. A GSHP connected to an energy pile operates in cycles where it functions for a period ...
