This works seeks to summarize recent advances in experimental studying of triboluminescence—defined here as the light emission when a material is subjected to rubbing, scratching, rolling, impacting or other mechanical agitation—and elucidate the basic mechanisms whereby triboluminescence is excited. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.

Methods for recycling mixed cullet, which is a constituent of solid common wastes, are analyzed. It is shown that the problem of recycling wastes of this form remains topical. It is established experimentally that the method of mechanochemical activation makes it possible to obtain a mixed alkaline binding substance which is promising for the production of unfired heat-insulating materials with high mechanical properties. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, Inc.

Reinforcement corrosion is one of the major durability problems that need to be solved in order to extend the service life of a structure. It is influenced, on one hand, by the concrete itself, sound or polluted (chlorinated or carbonated), and on the other hand, by the environmental conditions (controlled or outdoor). To explore the influence of temperature and humidity, electrochemical characterisations (potential, linear polarisation resistance and corrosion rate) were carried out on reinforced concrete prisms. A database of more than 3000 values has been delivered. The results enabled us to deduce that both parameters have influences on each other. Moreover, considering the four concretes, the corrosion order obtained in controlled conditions may be different from the one obtained in outdoor conditions. © 2012 Taylor & Francis. Source

Engineering Failure Analysis

Three broken steel bars from a sewed crack in a dam are reported. The inspection of the fracture surfaces of the prestressed bars suggests that fractures were triggered by small cracks and by the inherent brittleness of the bars, as fracture toughness was about 40MPam 1/2. The analysis of the failures shows that the usual design requirements for prestressing bars fail to warn against brittle failures if some damage exists. Some recommendations, based on the concept of damage tolerance, are suggested to avoid similar unfortunate incidents. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. Source
