Corrugated bamboo as reinforcement in concrete (2017)
Journal Article
Khatib, A., & Nounu, G. (2017). Corrugated bamboo as reinforcement in concrete. Proceedings of the ICE - Structures and Buildings, 170(4), 311-318. https://doi.org/10.1680/jstbu.16.00067

© 2017, Thomas Telford Services Ltd. All rights reserved. This study investigated improving bamboo-concrete bond by increasing mechanical interlock. Pull-out tests were used to measure the bond between bamboo and concrete. Corrugated and non-corrugat... Read More about Corrugated bamboo as reinforcement in concrete.

Utilizing waste recycled glass as sand/cement replacement in concrete (2009)
Journal Article
Taha, B., & Nounu, G. (2009). Utilizing waste recycled glass as sand/cement replacement in concrete. Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering, 21(12), 709-721. https://doi.org/10.1061...2009%2921%3A12%28709%29

The potential use of waste recycled glass in concrete as recycled glass sand (RGS) and pozzolanic glass powder (PGP) was examined in this study. No major difference was found in compressive strength of concrete with the presence of RGS as sand replac... Read More about Utilizing waste recycled glass as sand/cement replacement in concrete.

Using lithium nitrate and pozzolanic glass powder in concrete as ASR suppressors (2008)
Journal Article
Taha, B., & Nounu, G. (2008). Using lithium nitrate and pozzolanic glass powder in concrete as ASR suppressors. Cement and Concrete Composites, 30(6), 497-505. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cemconcomp.2007.08.010

This investigation studies the influence of two different mineral admixtures, lithium nitrate (Li) and pozzolanic glass powder (PGP) on the expansion induced by alkali-silica reaction (ASR). Four numbers of concrete prisms were produced for each conc... Read More about Using lithium nitrate and pozzolanic glass powder in concrete as ASR suppressors.

Properties of concrete contains mixed colour waste recycled glass as sand and cement replacement (2008)
Journal Article
Taha, B., & Nounu, G. (2008). Properties of concrete contains mixed colour waste recycled glass as sand and cement replacement. Construction and Building Materials, 22(5), 713-720. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.conbuildmat.2007.01.019

Mixed colour waste recycled glass is waste material that cannot be reused in glass industry. Concrete can be considered as an outlet for the surplus quantities of the mixed colour waste recycled glass. This research work studies the feasibility of re...

Numerical simulation of shrinkage and creep in patch-repaired axially loaded reinforced concrete short columns (2001)
Journal Article
Nounu, G. F., Shambira, M. V., & Nounu, G. (2001). Numerical simulation of shrinkage and creep in patch-repaired axially loaded reinforced concrete short columns. Computers and Structures, 79(29-30), 2491-2500. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0045-7949%2801%2900132-8

This paper presents numerical results obtained from finite element simulations of the time-dependent behaviour of moderately loaded patch-repaired reinforced concrete short columns. Patch repair is a structural concrete repair method in which damaged... Read More about Numerical simulation of shrinkage and creep in patch-repaired axially loaded reinforced concrete short columns.
