FOUNDATIONS UNDER WATER

FONDATIONS EN SITE AQUATIQUE

RESEARCH OVER SEVERAL YEARS IS UNDERTAKEN IN 1979. THE OBJECTIVE IS: - TO FULFIL THE NEEDS EXPRESSED BY THE AUTHORITIES FOLLOWING RECENT ACCIDENTS TO NUMEROUS STRUCTURES WHICH WERE IN PRECARIOUS CONDITION, - TO IMPROVE THE EXISTING KNOWLEDGE ON SCOURING MECHANISMS. IN 1979 INVESTIGATIONS WILL BE REGROUPED ROUND FIVE PRIORITY THEMES: (1) SURVEILLANCE OF STRUCTURES IN COOPERATION WITH THE ENGINEERING STRUCTURE SECTION OF THE LCPC. (2) NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING OF FOUNDATIONS IN COOPERATION WITH THE PHYSICAL SECTION OF THE LCPC. (3) PROTECTION OF BEARINGS AGAINST SCOURING. (4) REPAIR OF FOUNDATIONS SHOWING DAMAGE. (5) DETECTION AND FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF SCOURING PHENOMENA IN COOPERATION WITH THE PHYSICAL SECTION OF THE LCPC. WORK UNDERTAKEN IN 1979 WILL BE MAINLY CENTRED ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A LIST OF EXISTING TECHNIQUES AND THE TESTING OF SOME NEW METHODS.
