Project: Improved Design of Arch Bridges by Assessment of Geometric Imperfections through Strain Measurements (Idagis)
- project duration
- 01-JAN-05 – 31-OCT-09
- The project will succeed in full description of the stability behaviour of arch bridges of out-of-plane buckling. This requires experimental determining of real arch bridge geometric imperfections, through high-precision strain measurements. In addition elasto-plastic calculations of arch stability, enables to draw full conclusions concerning out-of-plane buckling of arch bridges.
