Response of Reinforced Concrete and Corrugated Steel Pipes to Surface Load
Full-scale simulated live load tests were conducted in a controlled laboratory setting using a single-axle frame on 600-mm-inner-diameter reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) and corrugated steel pipe (CSP) when buried in dense, ...
Distributed Fibre Optic Strain Sensing to Monitor Deterioration in Reinforced Concrete
Structural health monitoring (SHM) is an increasingly useful tool for life cycle management of deteriorating infrastructure. Rayleigh backscatter distributed fibre optic strain sensing (FOS) is a promising measurement ...
Investigation of Culvert Joints Employing Large Scale Tests and Numerical Simulations
The performance of joints in buried gravity flow pipelines are important since failure of these elements can affect the structural capacity of soil-pipe systems and reduce their longevity. Currently, there are no clear ...
