  • Fractional-order theory of thermoelasticity. II: Quasi-static behavior of Bars 2018

    Piccolo, V.; Alaimo, G.; Chiappini, A.; Ferrari, M.; Zonta, D.; Zingales, M.; Deseri, L., "Fractional-order theory of thermoelasticity. II: Quasi-static behavior of Bars" in JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING MECHANICS, v. 144, n. 2 (2018), p. 04017165. - URL: http://ascelibrary.org/toc/jenmdt/current . - DOI: 10.1061/(ASCE)EM.1943-7889.0001395

    This work aims to shed light on the “thermally-anomalous” coupled behavior of slightly deformable bodies, in which the strainis additively decomposed in an elastic contribution and in a thermal part. The macroscopic heat flux turns out to depend upon the time historyof the corresponding temperature gradient, and this is the result of a multiscale rheological model developed in Part I of the present study,thereby resembling a long-tail memory behavior governed by a Caputo’s fractional operator. The macroscopic constitutive equation betweenthe heat flux and the time history of the temperature gradient does involve a power law kernel, resulting in the “anomaly” mentioned previously.The interplay between such a thermal flux and elastic and thermal deformability are investigated for a pinned-pinned truss. Thisallows a focus on the effects of the deviation from Fourier’s law on the thermoelastic coupling. Indeed, the interactions in the presented systemare fully coupled because the temperature and displacement field mutually influence one another

Proceedings of: Structural Faults + Repair-2016, Edinburgh, 17-19 May 2016

    With its 13 spans and total length of 1028 m, Colle Isarco Viaduct is among the longest bridges in the Alpine region and is a link of strategic importance on the highway corridor connecting Northern Italy to Austria. Its longest span, 163 m long, is spanned with balanced cantilevers of depth varying from 2.85 m to 10.80 m, supporting a suspended span. The bridge was designed and built between 1968 and 1971 and underwent repair interventions in 1988, 1999 and 2007. To cope with today’s growing traffic load demand, the bridge was recently further retrofitted through installation of an external post-tensioning system. The effectiveness of this work, completed in 2015, is currently being assessed through extensive structural health monitoring. The monitoring instrumentation includes a topographic network, operating since summer 2014; load cells recording the tension of the new post-tensioning cables; and a network of fiber optic strain gauges and PT100 temperature sensors, to be installed by the end of 2016, and expected toprovide detailed information on the strain and temperature fields of the cantilevers. In this note, we illustratethe bridge, its history and the past maintenance works. We describe in detail the rationale behind the designof the new monitoring system and how the data acquired shed light on the observed past behavior of thebridge and on the effectiveness of the new retrofit intervention
