RIGID PIPE PROOF TESTING UNDER EXCESS OVERFILLS WITH VARYING BACKFILL PARAMETERS: SECTION III: (PART 1) DETERMINATION OFF INTERNAL FORCES IN THE PIPE AND PIPE DEFORMATIONS - R/C PIPE

Strains read from SR-4, electrical resistance gauges and Carlson Strainmeters placed at the octant points of the Cross Canyon culverts, were used to determine bending to permit determination of displacement fields. Methods of analysis are presented in this section of the report. Also included are plots of wall moments and thrusts as functions of overfill and time after fill completion. Moment, thrust and displacement fields for given overfills determined thusly are compared with quasi-theoretical fields in Section V. Part 1 of this section is concerned only with the dummy culvert. Similar material pertinent to the prestressed pipe will be discussed in Section III, Part 2. (FHWA)
