Analysis of the torrential-watercourse wall exposed to thermal action

Danila Lozzi-Kožar, Ivica Kožar, Danko Holjević

Abstract

The thermal load imposed on a torrential-watercourse wall in Mošćenička Draga is considered. The part of the wall affected by cracking was modelled and analyzed as a two-dimensional member in the plane. The temperature load leads to stress values greater than those allowed for the concrete type used, which results in the formation of cracks. Cracking measurement results are compared with calculated displacements. The displacement values show that expansion joints, not anticipated in this case, were in fact necessary to prevent wall cracking.
