    Analysis of load and response on large hydropower draft tube structures2019Rapport (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In a reaction turbine, the runner outlet is connected to a diffuser which is called the draft tube. Large hydropower units with large effect and large discharge normally require large dimensions on the waterways. In some large-scale facilities, the total width of the draft tube is so large there is a need for a supporting centre wall in the draft tube. In the Swedish hydropower business, there are several cases where damages or cracks have been reported in the contact between the roof and the supporting centre wall. The most likely reason for cracking between wall and roof is when refilling the draft tube after it has been drained for inspection. A too quick refilling will give an upwards lifting force on the roof that can be larger than the capacity in the joint. There are still uncertainties regarding the risk for a long-term scenario where any operational pattern could give continued crack propagation.

    Vattenfall Hydropower has made an installation with pressure and strain sensors in one of their facilities with a centre wall supported draft tube and a cavity between the roof and the rock cavern. The aim of the project is to get a better understanding on the behaviour of the roof and centre wall during different operational events by evaluating measurements from the draft tube and investigating possible load cases that can create continued crack propagation during operation. In this regard, in this project, the measurements are analysed to discover the different operational patterns and the corresponding effect on applied pressure on draft tube central wall and roof and structure response. A simplified finite element model of the draft tube is demonstrated and the response from the structure due to extracted load patterns is compared with the measurements.

    One-year measurements of the unit operation indicated that unit operates over the whole range with many start/stops. Three major types of operation were: normal operation (working in daytime and downtime at night), continuous operation with no stop and start-stop events with sharp start/stop in the morning and afternoon. The analysis of pressure measurements indicated that the fluid motion in the straight diffuser is turbulent and possibly influenced by vortex formation under the runner. Therefore, the pressure on the right side of the central wall was higher than on the left side.

    The quality of the strain measurements showed to be of insufficient quality and lack of information regarding the set-up. This has given questions on the possibility to get reliable results in the evaluation. Nevertheless, an evaluation has been performed. The evaluation of strain measurements demonstrated higher strain values at the upstream side of the central wall and roof. Moreover, the strain on underside of the roof was higher than on the central wall. Sudden fluctuation during continuous operation and sequence of start/stop were the cases that in long-term may cause damage to the structure due to fatigue problems. The results from finite element model indicated high tensile strength at the upstream side of the straight diffuser, in contact between the roof and the central wall where a crack has been detected in the real structure.

    Impact-type vibration effects on young concrete for tunnelling2016Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The strive for a time-efficient construction process naturally put focus on the possibility of reducing the time of waiting between stages of construction, thereby minimizing the construction cost. If recently placed concrete, cast or sprayed, is exposed to impact vibrations at an early age while still in the process of hardening, damage that threatens the function of the hard concrete may occur. A waiting time when the concrete remains undisturbed, or a safe distance to the vibration source, is therefore needed. However, there is little, or no, fully proven knowledge of the length of this distance or time and there are no established guidelines for practical use. Therefore, conservative vibration limits are used for young and hardening concrete exposed to vibrations from e.g. blasting.

    As a first step in the dynamic analysis of a structure, the dynamic loads should always be identified and characterized. Here it is concluded that impact-type loads are the most dangerous of possible dynamic loads on young and hardening concrete. Shotcrete (sprayed concrete) on hard rock exposed to blasting and cast laboratory specimens subjected to direct mechanical impact loads have been investigated using finite element models based on the same analysis principles. Stress wave propagation is described in the same way whether it is through hard rock towards a shotcrete lining or through an element of young concrete.

    Within this project, work on evaluating and proposing analytical models are made in several steps, first with a focus on describing the behaviour of shotcrete on hard rock. It is demonstrated that wave propagation through rock towards shotcrete can be described using two-dimensional elastic finite element models in a dynamic analysis. The models must include the material properties of the rock and the accuracy of these parameters will greatly affect the results. It is possible to follow the propagation of stress waves through the rock mass, from the centre of blasting to the reflection at the shotcrete-rock interface. It is acceptable to use elastic material formulations until the strains are outside the elastic range, which thus indicates imminent material failure. Comparisons are made between numerical results and measurements from experiments in mining tunnels with ejected rock mass and shotcrete bond failure, and with measurements made during blasting for tunnel construction where rock and shotcrete remained intact. The calculated results are in good correspondence with the in situ observations and measurements, and with previous numerical modelling results. Examples of preliminary recommendations for practical use are given and it is demonstrated how the developed models and suggested analytical technique can be used for further detailed investigations.

    Models for analysis of shotcrete on rock exposed to blasting2012Licentiatavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Inom undermarks- och tunnelbyggande leder strävan efter en mer tidseffektiv byggprocess till fokus på möjligheten att reducera väntetiderna mellan byggetapper. Möjligheten att projicera sprutbetong på bergytor i ett tidigt skede efter sprängning är avgörande för säkerheten under konstruktionen av t.ex. en tunnel. En komplikation uppstår när behovet av ytterligare sprängning kan påverka härdningen av nysprutad betong. Om betong, gjuten eller sprutad, utsätts för vibrationer i ett tidigt skede under härdningsprocessen kan skador som hotar funktionen hos den hårdnade betongen uppstå. Kunskapen i ämnet är knapphändig, eller obefintlig, och det finns inga etablerade riktlinjer för praktisk användning.

    Slutsatsen från tidigare undersökningar visar att sprutbetong kan tåla höga vibrationer (partikelhastigheter) utan att allvarliga skador uppstår. Oarmerad sprutbetong kan vara oskadd efter att ha utsatts för så höga vibrationsnivåer som 0,5–1 m/s medan partier med förlorad vidhäftning till berget kan uppträda vid vibrationshastigheter högre än 1 m/s. Funktionen hos ung och hårdnande sprutbetong som utsätts för höga vibrationsnivåer undersöks här för att identifiera säkra avstånd och sprutbetongåldrar för undermarks- och tunnelbyggande, med hjälp av numeriska analyser och jämförelser med mätningar och observationer. Arbetet fokuserar på att finna samband mellan numeriska resultat, mätresultat och observationer från tunnelbyggande. Det slutliga resultatet kommer att vara riktlinjer för praktisk användning.

    Projektet omfattar utveckling av sofistikerade dynamiska finita elementmodeller för vilka insamlad information och data kommer att användas som indata för det finita elementprogrammet Abaqus. Modellerna utvärderades och förfinats genom jämförelser mellan beräknade och uppmätta resultat. Först jämfördes befintliga enkla mekaniska, ingenjörsmässiga modeller vilka utvärderades genom beräkningar och jämförelser med befintliga data. Den första modellen är en strukturdynamisk modell bestående av massor och fjäderelement. Den andra är en modell uppbyggd av finita balkelementet sammankopplade med fjädrar. Den tredje är en endimensionell elastisk spänningsvågsmodell. Spänningstillståndet i sprutbetongen närmast berget, utsatt för vinkelrätt inkommande P-vågor simulerades. Resultat från icke-förstörande laborationsprovningar användes också som testdata för modellerna. Experimentellt studerades P-vågsutbredning i en betongbalk med egenskaper likvärdiga med berg. Cementbruk med egenskaper liknande sprutbetong applicerades på balkens ena ände medan en hammare användes i den andra. Formen hos den genererade spänningsvågen som propagerade mot sprutbetongänden registrerades med accelerometrar utplacerade längs balken.

    På grund av bergets inhomogena karaktär kommer spänningsvågorna från sprängningen att dämpas ut på vägen från detonationspunkten till sprutbetongen på bergytan. Materialdämpningen hos bergmassan måste därför beaktas och kan uppskattas utifrån resultat från fältmätningar. Vibrationståligheten hos förstärkningssystem av sprutbetong och berg beror av materialegenskaperna hos sprutbetongen och i den här studien varierades de åldersberoende egenskaperna för att undersöka beteendet hos nysprutad och hårdnande sprutbetong utsatt för sprängbelastning. De numeriska simuleringarna kräver realistiska materialdata för sprutbetong och berg, som t.ex. densitet och elasticitetsmodul.

    De beräknade resultaten var i god överensstämmelse med observationer och mätningar i fält plats, och med de tidigare numeriska resultaten. Jämfört med de mekaniska modellerna kan ett sofistikerat finit elementprogram underlätta modellering av mer komplexa geometrier och också ge mer detaljerade resultat. Det visades att vågutbredning genom berg och fram emot sprutbetong kan beskrivas med tvådimensionella elastiska finita element i en dynamisk analys. Modellerna måste beskriva bergets egenskaper och noggrannheten i dessa parametrar kommer att ha stor inverkan på resultaten. Det kommer att vara möjligt att beskriva vågutbredningen genom bergmassan, från detonationspunkten till reflektionen vid bergytan, det vill säga gränssnittet mellan sprutbetong och berg. Det är acceptabelt att använda elastiska materialformuleringar tills materialet elasticitetsgräns överskrids tills töjningar utanför det elastiska området nås, vilket därmed indikerar materialbrott.

    Den högre komplexiteten hos den här typen av modell, jämfört med de mekaniska modellerna, kommer att göra det möjligt att analysera mer komplexa tunnelgeometrier. Exempel på preliminära rekommendationer för praktiskt bruk ges och det visas hur de utvecklade modellerna och den föreslagna analysmetodiken kan användas för att fastställa ytterligare detaljerade gränsvärden.

    Models for analysis of young cast and sprayed concrete subjected to impact-type loads2015Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The strive for a time-efficient construction process naturally put focus on the possibility of reducing the time of waiting between stages of construction, thereby minimizing the construction cost. If recently placed concrete, cast or sprayed, is exposed to impact vibrations at an early age while still in the process of hardening, damage that threatens the function of the hard concrete may occur. A waiting time when the concrete remains undisturbed, or a safe distance to the vibration source, is therefore needed. However, there is little, or no, fully proven knowledge of the length of this distance or time and there are no established guidelines for practical use. Therefore, conservative vibration limits are used for young and hardening concrete exposed to vibrations from e.g. blasting.

    As a first step in the dynamic analysis of a structure, the dynamic loads should always be identified and characterized. Here it is concluded that impact-type loads are the most dangerous of possible dynamic loads on young and hardening concrete. Shotcrete (sprayed concrete) on hard rock exposed to blasting and cast laboratory specimens subjected to direct mechanical impact loads have been investigated using finite element models based on the same analysis principles. Stress wave propagation is described in the same way whether it is through hard rock towards a shotcrete lining or through an element of young concrete. However, the failure modes differ for the two cases where shotcrete usually is damaged through loss of bond, partly or over larger sections that may result in shotcrete downfall. Cracking in shotcrete due to vibrations only is unusual and has not been observed during previous in situ tests. The study of shotcrete is included to demonstrate the need of specialized guidelines for cases other than for mass concrete, i.e. structural elements or concrete volumes with large dimensions in all directions.

    Within this project, work on evaluating and proposing analytical models are made in several steps, first with a focus on describing the behaviour of shotcrete on hard rock. It is demonstrated that wave propagation through rock towards shotcrete can be described using two-dimensional elastic finite element models in a dynamic analysis. The models must include the material properties of the rock and the accuracy of these parameters will greatly affect the results. It is possible to follow the propagation of stress waves through the rock mass, from the centre of blasting to the reflection at the shotcrete-rock interface. It is acceptable to use elastic material formulations until the strains are outside the elastic range, which thus indicates imminent material failure. The higher complexity of this type of model, compared with mechanical models using mass and spring elements, makes it possible to analyse more sophisticated geometries. Comparisons are made between numerical results and measurements from experiments in mining tunnels with ejected rock mass and shotcrete bond failure, and with measurements made during blasting for tunnel construction where rock and shotcrete remained intact. The calculated results are in good correspondence with the in situ observations and measurements, and with previous numerical modelling results. Examples of preliminary recommendations for practical use are given and it is demonstrated how the developed models and suggested analytical technique can be used for further detailed investigations.

    The modelling concept has also been used for analysis of impact loaded beams and concrete prisms modelled with 3D solid elements. As a first analysis step, an elastic material model was used to validate laboratory experiments with hammer-loaded concrete beams. The laboratory beam remained un-cracked during the experiments, and thus it was possible to achieve a good agreement using a linear elastic material model for fully hardened concrete. The model was further developed to enable modelling of cracked specimens. For verification of the numerical results, earlier laboratory experiments with hammer impacted smaller prisms of young concrete were chosen. A comparison between results showed that the laboratory tests can be reproduced numerically and those free vibration modes and natural frequencies of the test prisms contributed to the strain concentrations that gave cracking at high loads. Furthermore, it was investigated how a test prism modified with notches at the middle section would behave during laboratory testing. Calculated results showed that all cracking would be concentrated to one crack with a width equal to the sum of the multiple cracks that develop in un-notched prisms. In laboratory testing, the modified prism will provide a more reliable indication of when the critical load level is reached.

    This project has been interdisciplinary, combining structural dynamics, finite element modelling, concrete material technology, construction technology and rock support technology. It is a continuation from previous investigations of the effect on young shotcrete from blasting vibrations but this perspective has been widened to also include young, cast concrete. The outcome is a recommendation for how dynamic analysis of young concrete, cast and sprayed, can be carried out with an accurate description of the effect from impact-type loads. The type of numerical models presented and evaluated will provide an important tool for the work towards guidelines for practical use in civil engineering and concrete construction work. Some recommendations on safe distances and concrete ages are given, for newly cast concrete elements or mass concrete and for newly sprayed shotcrete on hard rock.

    A comparison of models for shotcrete in dynamically loaded rock tunnels2010Ingår i: Shotcrete: Elements of a system / [ed] E. Stefan Bernard, Taylor & Francis Group, 2010, s. 1-10Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    During blasting in tunnels and mines, the shotcrete-rock interaction is influenced by propagating stress waves. Shotcrete support in hard rock tunnels is here studied through numerical analysis and comparisons with previous numerical results, measurements and observations in situ. The stress response in the shotcrete closest to the rock when exposed to P-waves striking perpendicularly to the shotcrete-rock interface is simulated. The first model tested is an elastic stress wave model, which is onedimensional with the shotcrete assumed linearly elastic. The second is a structural dynamic model that consists of masses and spring elements. The third model is a finite element model implemented using the Abaqus/Explicit program. Two methods are used for the application of incident disturbing stress waves: as boundary conditions and as inertia loads. Results from these three types of models are compared and evaluated as a first step before a future extension to more detailed analyses using 3D models.

    Direct shear strength of high-strength fibre concrete2010Ingår i: Magazine of Concrete Research, ISSN 0024-9831, E-ISSN 1751-763X, Vol. 62, nr 5, s. 379-390Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An experimental and theoretical study of the shear behaviour of steel-fibre-reinforced concrete is presented. Twenty-seven direct shear push-off tests were carried out on high-strength concrete, with and without steel fibre reinforcement. The test series contained uncracked and precracked specimens for the study of the slipping response and the shear stress that can be transferred across an open crack. The test variables were the fibre content and the reinforcement ratio. The test results were compared with information provided by the available codes and other, previous results. The test results indicated that incorporation of steel fibres and bars in concrete members subjected to shear leads to an improved mechanical behaviour before failure. Based on the presented experimental results, an equation governing the direct shear strength is proposed and verified against test results from other test series.

    Laboratory investigation of stress waves in young shotcrete on rock2012Ingår i: Magazine of Concrete Research, ISSN 0024-9831, E-ISSN 1751-763X, Vol. 64, nr 10, s. 899-908Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To study the behaviour of shotcrete under dynamic load, a non-destructive laboratory experiment was set up with P-wave propagation along a concrete bar, with properties similar to rock. Cement-based mortar with properties that resemble shotcrete was applied to one end of the bar with a hammer impacting the other. The shape of the stress waves travelling towards the shotcrete was registered using accelerometers positioned along the bar. Finite-element modelling was used to verify the test results, which showed that the laboratory model with an impacting hammer could be used to initiate the same type of stress waves that result from blasting in good-quality rock. Previously recommended maximum allowed peak particle vibration velocities were verified.

    Structural dynamic and stress wave models for analysis of shotcrete on rock exposed to blasting2012Ingår i: Engineering structures, ISSN 0141-0296, E-ISSN 1873-7323, Vol. 35, nr 1, s. 11-17Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    During blasting in tunnels and mines, the interaction between shotcrete (sprayed concrete) and rock is influenced by propagating stress waves. Shotcrete support in hard rock tunnels is studied here through numerical analysis using three different modelling approaches. The stress response in the shotcrete closest to the rock when exposed to P-waves striking perpendicularly to the shotcrete–rock interface is simulated. The first model tested is a structural dynamic model that consists of masses and spring elements. The second is a model built up with finite element beam elements interconnected with springs. The third is a one-dimensional elastic stress wave model. The models give comparable results, although the definition of the dynamic loads is different. The analysis results can be used to estimate whether the shotcrete will fail or not for a prescribed distance to detonating explosives inside the rock.

    Vibration vulnerability of shotcrete on tunnel walls during construction blasting2014Ingår i: Tunnelling and Underground Space Technology, ISSN 0886-7798, E-ISSN 1878-4364, Vol. 42, s. 105-111Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The effect on shotcrete from blasting operations during tunnelling is studied, with focus on young and hardening shotcrete. A finite element model specially adapted for analysis of the shotcrete behaviour is tested, it is able to describe stress wave propagation in two dimensions which is important for cases where shear stresses are dominant. The modelling results are compared with in situ measurements and observations, from construction blasting during tunnelling through hard rock. The comparison shows that the model gives realistic results and can be used to investigate the vulnerability of shotcrete, aiming at compiling recommendations and guidelines for practical use. The given recommendations emphasize that blasting should be avoided during the first 12 h after shotcreting and that distance and shotcrete thickness are important factors for how much additional time of waiting is possibly needed.

    Numerical modelling and evaluation of laboratory tests with impact loaded young concrete prisms2016Ingår i: Materials and Structures, ISSN 1359-5997, E-ISSN 1871-6873, ISSN 1359-5997, Vol. 49, nr 11, s. 4691-4704Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Numerical modelling in combination with in situ measurements, observations and laboratory testing will be important to future establishment of reliable guidelines for efficient civil and engineering work involving concrete casting close to e.g. blasting operations. Results from laboratory tests with impact loaded young concrete prisms are here evaluated using a 3D finite element model. Solid elements are used and a non-linear material model implemented, capable of describing cracking during stress wave propagation. The position of cracks and measured particle vibration velocities are calculated and compared with laboratory test results. The damaging effect of impact vibrations is evaluated using crack width and fracture energy as damage criteria. Alternative geometry for the test prisms, with a notched section, is analysed. This will give one wide crack at the centre of the prism instead of two or three cracks distributed over its length which will make future laboratory test more efficient and reliable. Recommended damage limits at concrete ages of 4, 6, 8 and 12 h are given, based on numerical calculations for concrete strength class C25 and C50.

    Crack propagation under water pressure2018Rapport (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cracks in concrete structures such as a concrete dam can be exposed to water pressure, for example, uplift pressure. The water pressure can be significant and may result in cracks propagating through the structures and thus it may result in reduced service life. However, the knowledge of water pressure within the cracks is relatively limited and is often neglected or just roughly estimated. The influence of crack opening rate on the uplift pressure distribution in the crack and the pressure variation during opening or sudden crack closure are questions needed to investigate. As an attempt to answer those questions, a pilot study presented here describes the possibilities and limitations of the proposed experimental setup; and technology (penetrability meter and tomography) as an examination method for water pressure in propagation concrete cracks. The test specimens examined here are exclusively cylinders cast of concrete with or without an initial crack.

    The penetrability meter can be used to apply water pressure and to visualize the crack opening, X-Ray computed tomography test, was performed. KTH Civil and Architectural Engineering department has organized the laboratory resources.

    The examples reported in this work show that the technology and equipment have great potential for future work on crack propagation, however, sample design and preparation, as well as testing need further development.

    Finite element simulation of shotcrete exposed to underground explosions2012Ingår i: Nordic Concrete Research, ISSN 0800-6377, nr 45, s. 59-74Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    An elastic finite element model is used tosimulate theinducedstress waves from blasting, propagating in rock towards shotcrete on a tunnel wall. Due to the inhomogeneous nature of the rock, the stress wavesattenuate onitsway from the point of explosiontowardsthe shotcrete on the rock surface. Material damping for the rock-mass is estimated from in-situ measurements. The vibration resistance of the shotcrete-rock support system depends on the material properties of the shotcrete. Age-dependent material properties are varied to investigate the behaviour of young shotcrete subjected to blast loading. Finally, finite element analysis results are presented and verified through comparison with other numerical models, measurements and observations.

    Dynamic Measurements for Determining Poisson’s Ratio of Young Concrete2018Ingår i: Nordic Concrete Research, ISSN 0800-6377, nr 58, s. 95-105Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge of the elastic properties of concrete at early age is often a pre-requisite for numerical calculations. This paper discusses the use of a laboratory technique for determining Poisson’s ratio at early concrete age. A non-destructive test set-up using the impact resonance method has been tested and evaluated. With the method, it has been possible to obtain results already at 7 hours of concrete age. Poisson's ratio is found to decrease sharply during the first 24 hours to reach a value of 0.08 and then increase to approximately 0.15 after seven days.

    Skaderisker för vibrationsutsatt ung betong2016Ingår i: Bygg & Teknik, ISSN 0281-658X, nr 7, s. 54-57Artikel i tidskrift (Övrig (populärvetenskap, debatt, mm))
    Abstract [sv]

    De osäkerheter som finns kring de vibrationsnivåer som kan tolereras nära nygjuten betong leder ofta till att konservativa gränsvärden används vid byggande, vilket orsakar onödiga förseningar och stora säkerhetsavstånd med merkostnader som följd. För ung och hårdnande betong är effekten från vibrationer av stöttyp från till exempel sprängning den allvarligaste. Det finns stora skillnader mellan rekommenderade maximala vibrations-hastigheter från nationella föreskrifter och standarder och de som observerats och uppmätts av forskare och ingenjörer.

    Instrumentation and Modelling of a Reactor Containment Building2018Rapport (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Nuclear concrete containment buildings typically consist of pre-stressed concrete. The pre-stressing tendons are utilized to enforce a compressive state of stress to ensure that cracks do not occur in the containment structure. The tendons are thereby an important part of the containment building and important for its structural integrity. In many cases, these tendons are grouted with cement grout to prevent corrosion. This results however in that it is not possible to directly assess the tendons or re-tension these if significant long term losses occurs. The drawback with cement grouted tendons is, thereby, that it is not possible to directly measure the current tendon force. One conventional method to assess the status of the containment building, and thereby indirectly the tendons, is to perform pressure tests. The pressure tests are performed where the pressure in the containment building is increased. The response of the containment can after this be determined based on measurements of displacements and strains. The purpose of this project is to perform simulations of a pressure test of a Boiling Water Reactor (BWR) that is common in Sweden and Finland. Based on these simulations, the response of the containment building is determined and suggestions are made regarding suitable placement of measuring sensors. The suggested instrumentation has been divided into different types of sensors defined as detectors and support sensors. The detectors are needed to monitor the structural response of the containment while the support sensors are needed to give sufficient input to numerical analyses. It is suggested that detector sensors are placed at four vertical positions and at three points along the perimeter. At these locations, it is recommended that displacement sensors, strain gauges and temperature sensors are installed. In addition, it is also recommended that the relative radial displacement between the intermediate slab and the cylinder wall is monitored. As support sensors, it is recommended that the ambient temperature and relative humidity is measured since these constitute important boundary conditions for numerical analyses and thereby prediction of the structural behaviour.
