31. Deformations of the structure during the construction
The F.E. calculations allowed evaluating the deformations of the structure during the successive phases of the construction.
The values of the horizontal and vertical deflections (in cm) of the arch intradox are listed in the following table.
The values refer to seven different points of the intradox, which are located at L/8, L/4, 3L/8, L/2, 5L/8, 3L/4, 7L/8.
The following deflections during the construction phases were considered:
The values refer to each construction phase, so that the final deflection is obtained summing all the contributions.
In the paragraph 1.10, we suggested to dismantle the centering only after the completion of all the work phases with the exception of the construction of the paving and of the parapets. The calculations of the deformations have been performed in safety considering that the arch was dismantled just after its completion (to be more precise, when the mortar setting takes place), as a consequence the actual deformations will be not higher than the ones listed in the above table.
Schemes adopted in the calculation of the deformations
