Unparalleled experience in the forensic investigation of buried arch structures, abutments and retaining walls, ranging from greater than expected cracking and excessive deflections through to total collapse.
Significant projects include:
- Arch structures in the USA, Canada and Japan experiencing excessive longitudinal deflections under high fills.
- Deflections of Heathrow Roundabout arch, UK.
- Collapse of UK arch structure due to incorrect backfill procedures
- Severe shear cracking in an arch culvert structure at Wilto
