The advantages and luck of multi-carrier (MC) modulation on one aspect and the pliability provided by means of the unfold spectrum (SS) method at the different facet have stimulated many researchers to enquire the combo of either concepts when you consider that 1993. this mixture often called multi-carrier unfold spectrum (MC-SS) advantages from some great benefits of either platforms and gives excessive flexibility, excessive spectral potency, basic detection recommendations, narrow-band interference rejection power, and so on.

A load-bearing envelope further liberates the ground plan from fixed elements and restores to architecture the flexibility of LeCorbusier’s “free plan” as shown in Figure 6. In addition, the load-bearing structure can again be used as an architectural element (as in the Bauhaus era between the 50s and 70s as demonstrated by famous architects such as Mies van der Rohe or LeCorbusier) and no longer needs to be wrapped and hidden by the envelope for energy saving reasons. Figure 6 Dock Tower: concept of a self-sustainable lightweight 100-m high-rise GFRP building with multifunctional load-bearing exterior skin and free plan, derived from a plant stem (Keller 2006) Cellular GFRP wall and slab components furthermore may contain circulating water, as schematically shown in Figure 7, which serves as heat transfer medium for several purposes: fire resistance through storage and Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on FRP Composites in Civil Engineering 24 removal of heat, interior room heating during winter and cooling during summer, thermal mass, but also as potential absorber for integrated thermal solar systems or cooling of photovoltaic (PV) cells (see next Section).

As shown in Figure 2a, the fan was oriented in the direction of applied load. More recent studies on single fan FRP anchors have addressed the influence of multiple FRP anchors on FRP-to-concrete joints (Zhang et al. 2010). The encouraging performance of single fan FRP anchors has paved the way for the development of double fan FRP anchors. Such double fanned anchors, as shown in Figures 1a and 2b, are herein referred to as bow-tie FRP anchors. Stage C: The load reduced at the beginning of this stage due to partial rupture of the anchor dowel closest to the direction of applied load.
