Fast, non-destructive measurement of roof-bolt loads

frequencies of the measurement system to amount to several dozen kHz instead of MHz. In addition, the frequency measurement makes it possible to determine this delay with great precision, and ensures high noise immunity. 3 Laboratory tests The laboratory tests of the expansion-shell bolt have been conducted on a modern test stand owned by the Department of Underground Mining of the AGH University of Science and Technology. The test stand can be used to test roof bolts on a geometric scale of 1:1 under static and rapidly varying loads. Also, the stand is suitable for

Effectiveness of reinforcing an earth structure with a system of counterfort drains over a long-term use

[ 18 , 3 , 4 , 5 , 6 ]. This paper evaluates the effectiveness of reinforcing a damaged retaining embankment of a landfill by making counterfort drains in its slope. The system of counterfort drains changed the soil properties significantly over a long-term use. The evaluation was based on many years of field and laboratory tests and stability analysis. The field tests concerned the observation of N WST probing resistance change, and the laboratory tests concerned the change in soil consistency and water content. The paper presents the results of that tests

Influence of Steel and Polypropylene Fibers Addition on Selected Properties of Fine-Grained Concrete

Abstract

The article presents results of laboratory tests of selected mechanical and physical properties of fine-grained fiber concrete. Tests were conducted on samples with a different degree of reinforcement made on the basis of steel and polypropylene fibers. For the designed concrete mixtures and prepared samples, slump class, shrinkage, compressive and bending strength and water tightness were determined.

Influence of Silica Fume Addition on Selected Properties of Fine-Grained Concrete

Abstract

The article presents the results of laboratory tests of selected mechanical and physical properties of fine-grained concrete. The tests were carried out on samples with varying degrees of microsilica addition. The consistency class, shrinkage, compressive and bending strength, water resistance and frost resistance were determined for the designed concrete mixtures and made samples.

The Effect of Notch Depth on CTOD Values in Fracture Tests of Structural Steel Elements

Abstract

In elements of steel structures working at low temperatures, there is a risk of appearance of brittle fracture. This risk is reduced through the use of certified materials having guaranteed strength at a given temperature. A method which is most frequently used to determine brittle fracture toughness is the Charpy impact test, preformed for a given temperature. For offshore structures intended to work in the arctic climate, the certifying institutions more and more often require Crack Tip Opening Displacement (CTOD) tests instead of conventional impact tests, especially for steel and welded joints of more than 40 mm in thickness in the case of high-strength steel, and more than 50 mm for the remaining steels. The geometry of specimens and the test procedure are standardised; however, these standards provide some margin for specimen notch depth. The paper analyses the effect of notch depth difference, within the range permitted by the standards, on the recorded CTOD values of a given material. The analysis was performed via numerical modelling of destruction of specimens with different notch geometries and further verification of the obtained numerical results in laboratory tests. The calculations were carried out at the Academic Computer Centre in Gdansk.

New insight into the rheumatoid vasculitis

Abstract

Vasculitis in rheumatoid arthritis (rheumatoid vasculitis, RV) has a heterogeneous clinical presentation that includes skin disorders, neuropathy, eye symptoms and systemic inflammation. Rheumatoid vasculitis is an unusual complication of longstanding, severe rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

While RA affects the body’s joints, vasculitis is a condition in which blood vessels become inflamed. Rheumatoid vasculitis occurs in approximately 2 to 5% of patients who have RA. The blood vessels most often involved are arteries that bring blood to the skin, nerves, and internal organs. Veins can also be involved. Rheumatoid vasculitis is skin condition that is a typical feature of RA, presenting as peripheral vascular lesions that are localized (purpura, cutaneous ulceration, and gangrene of the distal parts of the extremities). The cause of RV is unknown, but given the prominence of immune components and the pathologic changes in involved blood vessels, an autoimmune process is suggested. Compared to other forms of vasculitis, there has been relatively little research in recent years on the specific entity of RV. There is some evidence that the incidence of RV has decreased over the past several decades, perhaps because of a better treatment of the underlying RA. In the present review, we discuss the clinical features, laboratory tests, the pathogenesis of RV.
