TL;DR: The Emerging Technology Series as mentioned in this paper is a series of information and recommendations based on available test data, technical reports, limited experience with field applications, and the opinions of committee members, with a focus on the development and appropriate use of new and emerging technologies.
Abstract: *Co-chairs of the subcommittee that prepared this document. Note: The committee acknowledges the contribution of associate member Paul Kelley. ACI encourages the development and appropriate use of new and emerging technologies through the publication of the Emerging Technology Series. This series presents information and recommendations based on available test data, technical reports, limited experience with field applications, and the opinions of committee members. The presented information and recommendations, and their basis, may be less fully developed and tested than those for more mature technologies. This report identifies areas in which information is believed to be less fully developed, and describes research needs. The professional using this document should understand the limitations of this document and exercise judgment as to the appropriate application of this emerging technology.

TL;DR: The statistical method, coupled with a finite-element analysis of the specimen, was successfully applied to optimize the geometry of a cruciform specimen with a circular reduced central region.
Abstract: A testing apparatus has been developed to study the behavior of sheet metals and composite materials under monotonic and cyclic biaxial loading conditions. This test facility employs cruciform specimens that are loaded in their plane. Problems encountered while developing the test system are discussed. We also discuss the difficulties common to test methods employing cruciform specimens. These relate to the design of a suitable specimen geometry and to the determination of the stresses throughout the specimen. A method for designing an optimal geometry for these specimens is presented. This method is based on the statistical tools of factorial and response surface designs. The statistical method, coupled with a finite-element analysis of the specimen, was successfully applied to optimize the geometry of a cruciform specimen with a circular reduced central region.

TL;DR: In this article, Beausir et al. studied texture development in magnesium during equal channel angular extrusion (ECAE) with an angle of 90° between the intersecting channels, and the ideal orientations for ECAE of hexagonal metals were identified considering the shear to be at the 45° intersection plane of the two channels.

TL;DR: In this article, the ideal positions and fibres of hexagonal close packed (hcp) crystals subjected to simple shear are explored in orientation space for the first time using the viscoplastic full constraints crystal plasticity approach with the help of an orientation persistence factor developed earlier for face-centred cubic crystals.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors provide a critical review of existing research in this area, identifies gaps of knowledge, and outlines directions for further research, including the optimization of construction details, models for the bond behaviour between NSM fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) and concrete, reliable design methods for flexural and shear strengthening, and the maximization of the advantages of this technique.
Abstract: Near-surface mounted (NSM) fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement is one of the latest and most promising strengthening techniques for reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Research on this topic started only a few years ago but has by now attracted worldwide attention. Issues raised by the use of NSM FRP reinforcement include the optimization of construction details, models for the bond behaviour between NSM FRP and concrete, reliable design methods for flexural and shear strengthening, and the maximization of the advantages of this technique. This paper provides a critical review of existing research in this area, identifies gaps of knowledge, and outlines directions for further research.
