MEASUREMENT OF THE PLAY OF ENGINEERING STRUCTURES AT EXPANSION JOINTS

MISURE DEI MOVIMENTI DELLE OPERE D'ARTE IN CORRISPONDENZA DEI GIUNTI DI DILATAZIONE

BECAUSE OF THE DIFFICULTY OF DETERMINING ALL MOVEMENTS OF ENGINEERING STRUCTURES AT THE JOINTS, EXPERIMENTAL RECORDINGS WERE MADE. THREE DIMENSIONAL MOVEMENTS WERE MEASURED AT THE FOUNDATION JOINTS OF SOME VIADUCTS. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF THE MEASURING APPARATUS AND TECHNIQUES. THE RESULTS OBTAINED SHOWED THAT THE JOINTS ARE SUBJECTED TO A LARGE NUMBER OF STRESSES WHICH LEAD QUICKLY TO FAILURE, AND THAT TO CORRECTLY DESIGN THEM, VARIOUS STRESSES NOT EASILY QUANTIFIABLE SHOULD BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT.
