Smart materials and structures

Further on smart materials are able to adapt their physical or chemical properties, in order to optimize the mechanical or thermal response of a structure or building. This in combination with innovative manufacturing processes will lead to new concepts in architectural engineering.

For example: electrochromic glass is simultaneously a glazing material, a window, a curtain wall system, a lighting control system or an automated shading system. It has a lot to do with new technologies D.

Schodek, 2 5 , recent developments in material research now allow coming to real-world practical, commercial applications.

Nowadays materials such as phase-change-materials, electro- chromic glasses and coatings, based on nano-technology, are available and the task is to span the gap between this material level to large scale architecture and building engineering applications.

The basic material of nanoparticles can be organic or inorganic, for example silver or ceramic. In the building sector, nanotechnology is an "enabling technology", a fundamental technology that helps to make other technological developments possible, Sylvia Bedecked, 2 8 , The challenges for nanomaterials synthesis lie in the design and tailoring of complex hybrid nanoparticles and 'intelligent' or 'smart' nanomaterials nanotubes, functionalized surfaces, multi-layers, novel thin films and interfaces with multiple functions for urgent applications, Michael Berger, 2 1 , this innovative technology include layers of nanoparticals which can make glazing especially water-repllent or spectrum-selective, or paints and plastics extremely scrach- resistant.

Glazing can incorporate suitably thin dichotic filter layers Nanoparticles can also be used in gypsum wallboard to improve room air quality. Examples of nanoparticles used are titanium dioxide Tio2 and zeolite Type1-property-changing, photoadhestive smart materials.

In a similar context, membranes with nanometer-scale pores are currently being developed to be used as part of facades with the ability to clean polluted city air. Indoor and out door, Axel Ritter, , Sylvia Bedecked, Actually the idea of multiple states of a system is not new, Dr. Teuffel, 2 9. Adaptive system definition: The three main components of smart or adaptive systems are defined as the sensors, the actuators and a control unit.

Sensors are one key component of any adaptive system. They must be able to measure different parameters at various points at various times. However extruded thermoplastics are not suitable for large-scale applications due to the challenges of extrusion. The brush-on polymer is weak, brittle and requires long cure times.

The polymers have fast gel and cure times, making application to vertical and overhead surfaces feasible. The polyurea are typically stiffer than polyurethanes but have less elongation capacity. As a result, urethanes are often combined with ureas to increase elongation capacity.

The masonry wall tests conducted by Air Force Research Laboratory at Tyndall AFRL indicate that a paint-on polymeric reinforcement approach can be effective in reducing the vulnerability of un-reinforcement non-load bearing CMU walls subjected to blast loading.

Kuzik et al. A full-scale test programme consisting of eight wall specimens was conducted. The authors have observed that the overall flexural performance of the masonry walls reinforced externally with GFRP sheets was excellent. Except for visible cracks, the walls maintained their structural integrity throughout the out-of-plane cyclic loading.

Besides, all of the unloading paths part near the origin result in a pinching effect.

Thus, the general behaviour of the walls was very predictable. The behaviour of seven half scale masonry specimens before and after retrofitting using FRP was investigated by El Gawady et al. Four walls were built using half scale hollow clay masonry units and weak mortar to simulate walls built in central Europe in the middle of the 20th century. There walls were first tested as URM walls, then the seismically damaged specimens were retrofitted.

The fourth wall was directly upgraded after construction.

The retrofitting and upgrading was carried out using FRPs with different axial rigidity. The FRP was applied on the entire surface of a single-side of each test specimen. All the specimens were tested under constant gravity load and incrementally increasing in-planeloading cycles.

Thandavamoorthy It has been observed by the authors that FRPs improved the lateral resistance of specimens by a factor of 1. Further the increase in the lateral strength was approximately increased proportional to the amount of the axial rigidity of FRP.

By using FRP retrofitting, the cracking load and pattern are effectively controlled. The mode of failure was found to be strongly dependent on the axial rigidity of FRP. Higher axial rigidity of FRP led to very ductile failure, Moreover the energy dissipation of the retrofitting and upgraded specimens was higher than the control specimens.

However, most of this energy dissipated due to friction in the masonry rather than due to deformations in the FRP. The role of the FRP was to keep the masonry together even at high drifts.

Strengthening of Masonry Vaults Among the structural components in masonry buildings such as arches and vaults deserve particular attention. They are very widespread in European historical centers, and their preservation as part of the cultural heritage is a topical subject. Because of their ages or for accidental causes such as earthquakes, these structures can suffer several type of damage, so the contribution of strengthening materials and repair techniques may be required to reestablish their performances and to prevent the brittle collapse of the masonry in possible future hazardous conditions.

A multilayer system of adhesion based on epoxy adhesives and designed to provide a support as homogeneous as possible for the failure has been adopted. The results of experimental research on brick, masonry vaults strengthened at their extrados or at their intrados by FRP strips are presented by Valluzzi et al. Different kinds of failure mechanisms have been observed. The width and the stiffness of the strips seem to have a strong influence on the behaviour in proximity to the failure.

Regardless of the type of strengthened material, vaults strengthened at the extrados revealed a possible brittle mechanism of failure due to the sliding between mortar and bricks.

Such a mechanism can be prevented by placing a proper amount of fiber distributed in the springer zones. Because of the larger surfaces available for the adhesion, higher value of ultimate strength of the vaults has been detected for the fibres with lower mechanical characteristics. Vaults strengthened at their intrados revealed a more ductile mechanism of failure because of the attachment of the fibers perpendicularly to the masonry interface. The failure is located in a limited zone, so the binding action of the strips can still avoid the collapse of the structures.

The fortification techniques have been initiated in the wake of the city being upgraded to seismic zone III a few years ago. Work on Kodambakkam Bridge and Ripon Buildings of more than years old has already been started. According to Lopez over m2 of fibre wrap was being used for strengthening columns of the ground floor of Ripon Buildings.

This would strengthen the columns that are likely to be damaged during seismic events. The fibre wrap being used now was capable of withstanding extremes of temperature. It was also cheaper than other available technologies. The fibre wrap was wound around the columns and the original material lime mortar or cement will then be packed on top of it Figure 5.

Application of FRP for Strengthening and Retrofitting of Civil Engineering Structures 55 The civic body had also done fibre wrapping on the columns of Kodambakkam bridge as part of restoration of the year-old structure. The restoration would include spraying of anti-corrosion material and grouting. A few years ago, an expert study conducted on the metre-long and The authorities of the Corporation were of the opinion that use of fibre wrap would strengthen such structures and prevent them from collapsing during, or after a seismic event.

Figure 5: Fibre Wrapping of Chennai Corporation Building Retrofitting of a Medieval Bell Tower with FRP It is a common practice in structural engineering to retrofit existing structures to resist seismic actions that they were not originally designed for. Seismic retrofitting of monument structures requires compliance with restrictive constraints related to the preservation of original artistic and structural features.

Any intervention that is conceived must achieve structural performance and at the same time comply with the appearance and structural mechanism of the original and be as minimally invasive as possible. The intervention on the bell tower of Santa Lucias Church in Serra San Quirico, Ancona, Italy is an application of composite materials for the seismic retrofit of historic monuments where traditional retrofit strategies are not suitable.

Affected by the Umbria-Marche earthquake in , the bell tower of Santa Lucias Church is a multilayered masonry structure built in the 15th century. It is located at the centre of the little town of Serra San Quirico, a medieval suburb near Ancona, and is surrounded by many residential constructions of the same age. It is a calcareous masonry building about 30 m in height and 1, m in width with a rectangular plan view Figure 6. Because of damage and failure of similar structures in the same area, a desire to improve the seismic capacity of the tower was expressed by the local Architectural Heritage Supervision Office.

Initially, to fulfill the scope of retrofitting an intervention based on steel reticular system anchored to the inner side of the tower was proposed. The Architectural Heritage Authority recognized that this intervention violates the above described principles and, therefore, rejected it.

Moreover, considering the steps and projections in the masonry walls and their lengths, a solution based on jacketing repair or steel plate repair also cannot be successful and may defeat the very purpose of the monumental structure.

Thandavamoorthy Figure 6: The design also included finite element simulation and a site structural assessment. Effectiveness of the intervention was evaluated by performing a nonlinear static analysis, i. Pushover curves for the retrofitted and un-retrofitted structures are shown in Figure 7. The FRP intervention enhances the seismic capacity of the structure and is fully provisional as it may be removed by heating the FRP with a hot air jet.

Figure 7: A total of four full sized mm x mm square pre-stressed piles were wrapped, two with carbon and two with glass. Two of these wrapped piles, i. Two other unwrapped piles serve as controls.

Instrumentation allowed determination of the corrosion potential over the unwrapped surface and the corrosion rate for the wrapped piles. The study showed that underwater wrapping is a visible system. As with most FRP retrofits, surface preparation is of paramount importance. In this case, surface preparation required equipment capable of operation underwater to grind sharp corners.

Although initial field tests on the wrapped piles indicated that the bond between the wet concrete and the FRP was relatively poor, laboratory tests showed the bond was adequate to restore the full undamaged capacity.

Corrosion rate measurements indicate that the performance of the wrapped piles is consistently better than the unwrapped controls. The preliminary findings are quite encouraging and suggest that underwater wrapping without cofferdam construction may provide a cost-effective solution for pile repair.

In this case, description about the treatment of corrosion is hardly presented. Of course, there is no doubt wrapping may prevent ingress of marine products. But the existing corrosion products still remain inside and proliferated with the passage time. Retrofitting of Hollow Bridge Piers In order to maximize efficiency in terms of the strength-to-mass and stiffness-to-mass ratios and to reduce the mass contribution of the pier-to-seismic response, it has been a common engineering practice to use hollow sections for bridge piers particularly for tall piers.

Hollow bridge piers are currently being used in high speed rail and highway projects in Taiwan. Recent earthquakes such as the Northridge earthquakes of , the Kobe earthquake of , and the Taiwan earthquakes of , have respectively demonstrated the vulnerabilities of older reinforced concrete piers to seismic deformation demands and shear strength.

Yeh and Mo have presented the results of an investigation on hollow piers retrofitted with carbon fiber reinforced polymer CFRP sheets.

Applied Energy. SMAs have smart characteristics as they Sep; The ability to change magnetic energy into kinetic energy and vice versa makes more special to magnetostrictive materials in the application of actuators and sensors for buildings.

The piezoelectricity is a state of smart materials which becomes electrically charged when directed to mechanical stresses and vice versa. Now these days TiO2 also considered as a smart material as it has low toxicity, high chemical firmness. The use of zero energy building ZEB provides a solution as less consumption of electricity with zero carbon emission which directly means environment friendly. References 1. Ahmad, I.
