Strain evolution of brick masonry under cyclic compressive loading (2019)
Journal Article
Tomor, A. K., Koltsida, I., & Booth, C. A. (2019). Strain evolution of brick masonry under cyclic compressive loading. Materials and Structures, 52(4), https://doi.org/10.1617/s11527-019-1379-0

Long-term fatigue tests in compression were performed on low-strength brick masonry prisms under laboratory conditions at different maximum stress levels. The maximum and minimum total longitudinal deformations with the loading cycles were recorded.... Read More about Strain evolution of brick masonry under cyclic compressive loading.

Sustainability of bridge maintenance (2019)
Journal Article
Balogun, T. B., Tomor, A., Lamond, J., Booth, C., & Gouda, H. (2019). Sustainability of bridge maintenance. Proceedings of the ICE - Bridge Engineering, 172(1), 54-64. https://doi.org/10.1680/jbren.15.00027

Bridge maintenance activities are important to consider within sustainable development due to the cost and environmental impact associated with various maintenance activities. Comparisons have been made between different bridge structural forms, base... Read More about Sustainability of bridge maintenance.

Long-term cyclic load capacity and residual life of masonry arch bridges (2014)
Report
Tomor, A. (2016). Long-term cyclic load capacity and residual life of masonry arch bridges

How long can existing masonry arch bridges continue to carry heavily increased traffic loading? Is there a weight limit for masonry bridges below which no long-term damage will occur to the structure? Can the life expectancy for masonry arch bridges...

Insights of experimental studies on the load carrying capacity of masonry under eccentric loading (2014)
Journal Article
Koltsida, I., Tomor, A., & Booth, C. (2014). Insights of experimental studies on the load carrying capacity of masonry under eccentric loading. Masonry International, 27(3), 49-54

Prediction of the load carrying capacity of masonry under combined axial load and flexure is a key priority for the assessment of masonry arches, pillars, vaults and walls. Despite the wealth of experimental data on the behaviour of masonry structure... Read More about Insights of experimental studies on the load carrying capacity of masonry under eccentric loading.

Effect of flood conditions on the deterioration of porous clay-based brick
Presentation / Conference
Mol, L., & Tomor, A. Effect of flood conditions on the deterioration of porous clay-based brick. Poster presented at AGU Fall Meeting 2018

Man-made materials represent an increasingly large proportion of geomaterials that are used to build up a rapidly expanding urbanised landscape. The deterioration of such materials is of increasing concern, in particular in light of the projected inc... Read More about Effect of flood conditions on the deterioration of porous clay-based brick.
