This paper aims at comparing different analysis methods in the design of a roof subjected to buffeting wind forces. The specificity of this study is that pressures acting on the stadium roof are measured in a wind tunnel. The key idea is to fit a probabilistic model onto the measured data and to perform the stochastic analysis as a usual buffeting analysis. [less ▲]

In civil engineering applications the dynamic analysis of large structure is often performed in a modal space. This method is known to offer an interesting decrease of the number of degrees of freedom as well as a decomposition of the structure’s response in “uncoupled” components. Even if the response in each mode can be computed independently from the responses in the other ones, in the context of stochastic loading, the coherence of these modal responses must be accounted for in the determination of the structural response. These quantities are known as the modal cross-correlations. In this paper we will show that these crosscorrelations can be important (contrarily to what is sometimes thought) even in case of wellseparated natural frequencies. This will be illustrated on the analysis of the famous Viaduct of Millau during an erection stage. [less ▲]

A satisfactory prediction of the settlements of hyperstatic structures is becoming more and more important in their design and construction. In this paper, the problems related to the behaviour of a group of piles and to the quality of the drilled piles of the canal-bridge of Houdeng (Belgium) are analysed in a non conventional fashion, based on a finite element analysis, thanks to sufficient experimental data. The influence of an imperfectly cleaned excavation bottom and of the destructuration of the bottom rocks caused by the drilling of the piles is investigated. A particular attention is also given to the behaviour of a group of piles. [less ▲]

The slenderness of plated structures together with a generalised use of high strength steel leads to a great importance of stability phenomena. The practical way to deal with such problems is to use rules proposed in design codes. A common alternative to design codes is the use of non linear finite element simulations. One of the most sensitive point in these simulations is the choice of the initial imperfections to be introduced in the model. The present paper discusses the effect of initial imperfections on the calculated collapse load. Several parameters are considered (shape, magnitude and direction). Results of numerical simulations are also compared with those of a design using Eurocode 3 or ECCS Recommendations. Two cases of plate geometry are studied (plate with one single stiffener and plate with multiple stiffeners). [less ▲]
