LOADING TESTS ON BRIDGE PARAPETS

BELASTUNGSVERSUCHE AN LEITEINRICHTUNGEN AUF BRUECKEN

A SERIES OF TESTS IS TO BE CARRIED OUT ON ALL THE EQUIPMENT CURRENTLY IN USE TO ESTABLISH THE STRESS ON THE EDGE AND CENTRAL EQUIPMENT SO THAT DESIGN OF THE ANCHORAGE CAN BE UNDERTAKEN. IT IS INTENDED TO MAKE A DETAILED STUDY OF THE DEFORMATION BEHAVIOUR OF THE DAMPING PIECE AND THE STRUTS WITH A VIEW TO ENSURING THE MAXIMUM POSSIBLE ABSORPTION OF ENERGY BY COORDINATION OF THE ELASTIC/PLASTIC PARTS. THE TESTS ARE BEING CARRIED OUT ON AN EDGE BEAM CONSTRUCTED ACCORDING TO SPECIFICATIONS WHICH SHOULD PROVIDE REALISTIC RESULTS. THE STRUTS OF THE SAFETY FENCE ARE ALSO TO BE SUBJECTED TO STATIC LOAD TESTING. AS WITH LITTLE EXTRA EXPENSE BEHAVIOUR AT GROUND LEVEL COULD ALSO BE DETERMINED, THE TESTS ARE TO BE EXTENDED TO DRIVEN PILES.
