CLOSURE ON STRESS AGAINST UNDERGROUND STRUCTURAL CYLINDERS

THE COMMENTS BY ALTERMAN ARE APPRECIATED, AS IS HIS EMPHASIS ON RELIABLE MEASUREMENTS ON PROTOTYPE SOIL-STRUCTURE SYSTEMS. THE FIELD COMPACTION PROCEDURE FOR THE SOIL BACKFILL AND THE CULVERT BEDDING CONDITIONS INFLUENCE GREATLY THE MAGNITUDE OF BENDING MOMENTS WHICH DEVELOP IN THE CULVERT WALL. SINCE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MODEL THE FIELD INSTALLATION IN SMALL SIZE EXPERIMENTS, THE INFLUENCE OF BEDDING CONDITIONS WAS DISCUSSED. THE WRITER DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT THE TANGENTIAL WALL DISPLACEMENTS WERE SIGNIFICANTLY RESTRAINED BY THE WAY THE TEST SECTION WAS DESIGNED. THE EXPERIMENTAL DATA SHOWED THAT CONCEPTS FROM CONTINUUM MECHANICS LEAD TO REALISTIC ANALYSIS OF SOIL-STRUCTURE INTERACTION. HOWEVER THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD OF ANALYSIS CAN NOW BE USED TO MAKE SUCH A STUDY MORE GENERAL AND TO CONSIDER FIELD SITUATIONS.
