BARRELS AND PIPES

BUSES ET CONDUITES

THE AIM OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO IMPROVE THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE BEHAVIOUR OF BARRELS AND PIPES IN EMBANKMENTS WITH A VIEW TO DEFINING THE DESIGN METHODS FOR THESE STRUCTURES. INVESTIGATIONS CONDUCTED ON TWO-DIMENSIONAL MODELS HAVE SHOWN THE COMPLEX BEHAVIOUR OF BARRELS EVEN IF THE RESULTS OBTAINED ARE MAINLY QUALITATIVE (UNFULFILMENT OF CONDITIONS OF SIMILITUDE). EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN THAT THE REAL BEHAVIOUR OF THESE STRUCTURES DEPENDS A GREAT DEAL ON CONDITIONS OF INSTALLATION. THE 1979 PROGRAMME CONSISTS MAINLY OF OBSERVATIONS ON REAL STRUCTURES.
