A theoretical analysis of the fluid-solid interactions governing the removal of woody debris jams from cylindrical bridge piers

Research Article Panici, D. & De Almeida, G., Published on 10 Mar 2020, In : Journal of Fluid Mechanics. 886, 21 p., A19. Abstract This paper proposes a theoretical model to describe previous laboratory observations of the dynamics of debris accumulations around bridge piers of cylindrical shape. The model is based on the assumption that the observed dynamics is mainly …

Estimation of track decay rates from laboratory measurements on a baseplate fastening system

Boniface Hima, Prof David Thompson, Dr Giacomo Squicciarini, Evangelos Ntotsios and David Herron 13th International Workshop on Railway Noise 16/09/19 → 20/09/19 Ghent, Belgium Abstract The dynamic properties of the rail fastening system affect the damping of the rail and the degree of coupling between the rail and the foundation. It is well known that the rate …
