    Abstract: Dams have one of the greatest significant roles in operating water resources. Seepage and slope stability failures cause completely failure of embankment dams. Dam disasters not only hazard community safety, they also can cost our economy millions of dollars in compensations. The study area is found in Oromia regional state between East Wollega and...

    Abstract: Previous studies show that pozzolan materials are a wise choice for retarding significant heat in mass concrete placements. This research aims at studying the early age thermal property of concrete containing bagasse ash under different ambient temperatures. Moreover, the compressive strength of concrete specimens with varying ratios of the mix is ... Show More

    Abstract: The present paper studies eccentric braces (EBs) and buckling-restrained braces (BRBs) used in steel frames. The eccentrically braced frames (EBFs) and buckling-restrained braced frames (BRBFs) that have respectively employed the EBs and BRBs are considered with different types of links as shear, moment-shear and moment links depending on their lin...
