  • Reliability basis for assessment of existing building structures with
           reference to sans 10160

    • Abstract: The principles of structural reliability are firmly established to provide the basis for structural performance as incorporated in design standards. Reliability-based procedures provide for variabilities and uncertainties that could reasonably be expected during the design service life of the structure. However, not all possible conditions to which all structures are exposed during such an extended service period can be accounted for effectively and economically at the design stage. The assessment of the reliability performance of an existing structure therefore forms an integral part of structural management and engineering practice. Despite the lag between the development and implementation of a basis for design and assessment of structures, the extensive body of information on structural assessment progresses steadily towards standardisation. This paper provides a review of the progress to provide background information towards extending the scope of South African structural standards to include guidance on structural assessment. The focus is on such developments to include provisions for existing structures in Eurocode, together with related investigations. In addition to a general review of background investigations, interrelationships between the basis of design and assessment for Eurocode (potentially also for South Africa) are considered. The main elements of a standardised basis for assessment are defined, and alternative assessment approaches are presented and demonstrated by representative examples. In conclusion, an outline of a possible development path for implementation in South Africa is provided.
       
  • Measurement of probabilistic ballast particle dynamics using Kli-Pi

    • Abstract: At first glance the operational performance of ballast appears trivial in its simplicity. However, various mechanisms affect the performance of the ballast both on a macroscopic scale and discrete (mesoscale) particle level. The importance of experimental studies to establish the influence of the granular fabric has been highlighted repeatedly by other researchers. This paper describes a method by which quantitative metrics and statistics can describe the probabilistic response of railway ballast. The measurements were obtained with the installation of a set of customised wireless inertial measurement unit (IMU), referred to as Kli-Pi, in the granular layers of a heavy-haul railway line located in South Africa. The results indicate a complex interaction of displacement and rotation, in all three spatial dimensions. The high-frequency measurements provided approximations of the particle's kinetic and potential energy (mechanical work) in addition to the indirect quantification of changes to the granular fabric. Finally, the descriptive statistics of the mechanical work provided an indirect measure of the confinement and coordination number of the particle, together with supporting evidence of the underlying probabilistic, instead of the expected deterministic response. These results strongly agree with the findings of existing literature that has, to date, been confined to theoretical study.
       
  • Reliability performance of bridges designed according to TMH7 NA load
           model

    • Abstract: The current code of practice for the design of highway bridges in South Africa is called Technical Methods for Highways 7 (TMH7). It was first published in 1981 and is largely based on the loading provisions of the BS5400. The purpose of this study is to carry out an investigation into the reliability performance of new highway bridges designed according to TMH7. Past studies have identified deficiencies in the traffic load model. A case study considering isolated traffic load effects and sagging moment on a simply supported bridge indicates that NA loading generally performs well for spans ranging from 15 to 50 metres. However, a poor reliability performance is seen for short-span narrow bridges, especially for 5 m and 10 m spans where the number of traffic lanes is equal to the number of notional lanes for NA loading. To study the reliability performance of a critical element, flexural behaviour of a 20 m twin-spine simply supported deck is then investigated. The results agree with the first case study. It is, however, recommended to verify the presented findings by investigation based on data from other heavy-freight routes and to account for continuous structures and shear load effects.
       
  • The variability in commercial laboratory aggregate testing for road
           construction in South Africa

    • Abstract: Simple data comparisons were undertaken using project data to illustrate the need for duplicate test analyses in road construction material investigations for hard rock aggregate sources. Test data was sourced from projects commissioned by the South African National Roads Agency SOC Limited (SANRAL). All test results except the polished stone value were reported by commercial geotechnical laboratories that are accredited with the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS). Only samples subjected to duplicate test analyses were used, as this method allows direct comparisons. The tests used for comparison included the polished stone value, wet and dry versions of the Aggregate Crushing Value test, wet and dry versions of the 10% Fines Aggregate Crushing Value test, the ethylene glycol-soaked version of the 10% Fines Aggregate Crushing Value test, and the water absorption test of both the fine (-5.00 mm) and coarse (+5.00 mm) material fractions. The results show that duplicate testing is firmly justified, as test results reported were often highly variable, despite all participating laboratories being SANAS-accredited and using standardised methods. Further consideration was then given to the additional cost of duplicate testing at project stage investigations compared to the cost implications of having erroneously reported materials failing in service or having good-quality materials rejected.
       
  • Review of compatibility between SANS 10400 deemed-to-satisfy masonry wall
           provisions and loading code

    • Abstract: South Africa has a housing shortage estimated in excess of 2 million units. This backlog is being addressed predominantly with the construction of 40 m² low-income, single-storey, detached, state-subsidised houses built with conventional concrete masonry units, regulated by the Application of the National Building Regulations, SANS 10400. However, several developments warrant a reconsideration of SANS 10400 deemed-to-satisfy masonry wall provisions. Two critical configurations of single-storey, unreinforced, bonded masonry walls are generated, based on these deemed-to-satisfy provisions. Subsequently, a simplified micro-scale finite element model is used to analyse these configurations under serviceability and ultimate limit state loading conditions. Characterisation tests of the concrete masonry material, together with numerical fitting to test data and data taken from literature, generate the necessary parametric input. The numerical analyses reveal that in half of the load cases, the walls' resistances failed to achieve the design load as required by the South African loading code. A significant shortfall was found for the out-of-plane resistance against the wind load, as well as structural vulnerability under seismic loading due to the geometric layout permitted by the deemed-to-satisfy rules. This indicates that the SANS 10400 provisions for masonry wall panel geometries require reconsideration, especially given the recent revision of the South African loading code.
       
  • Design and construction of laboratory-scale activated carbon, gravel and
           rice husk filter columns for the treatment of stormwater runoff from
           automobile workshops

    • Abstract: The design and construction of low-cost laboratory-scale filter columns using locally available Nigerian filter materials - granular activated carbon (GAC), gravel (GR) and rice husk (RH) - were carried out and reported. The filter materials and columns were designed, constructed and used for the treatment of stormwater runoff from selected automobile workshops in Nigeria over a period of three rainy months. The combined granular activated carbon and rice husk filter systems performed best with pollutant removal efficiency of 58%. It was shown that the materials, considered as waste, could be recycled and used as filter materials in the treatment of stormwater from automobile workshops. This low-cost technology for stormwater runoff treatment, especially for automobile workshops at large scale and in-situ, can be further explored.
