Three Dimensional Numerical Analysis of Static Pipe Bursting
During pipe bursting, a cone shaped expander is pulled through an existing pipe, breaking it, enlarging the cavity, and pulling a replacement pipe into place. The expansion of the soil cavity and axial movements of the ...
Experimental and analytical investigations of concrete bridge decks with structural FRP Stay-in-Place forms
Stay-In-Place (SIP) formwork systems are widely used for concrete slabs in industry due to their relative ease and speed of construction. Conventionally, corrugated metal sheets or precast panels are used as formwork. In ...
Structural Testing of Compressed Earth Blocks and Straw Bale Panels
Globally, there is a need for alternative building materials that require less energy to produce than conventional materials. These alternative materials have gained popularity in recent years, however there is a need to ...
Analysis of Hyporheic Flow Induced by a Bar in a Gravel Stream: an Experimental Study
Pipelines are one of the safest means to transport crude oil, but are not spill-free. This is of concern in North America, due to the large volumes of crude oil shipped by Canadian producers and the lengthy network of ...
Monitoring of Dynamic Bridge Behaviour Using Digital Image Correlation
Bridges are a critical part of North America’s transportation network that need to be assessed frequently to inform bridge management decision making. Visual inspections are usually implemented for this purpose, during ...
