Capacity assessment and modification of high noise barriers

Lesław Niewiadomski , Szymon Swierczyna , Walter Wuwer


Capacity assessment and modification of existing steel structure of high noise barriers in which imminent failure conditions occurs is developed in the article. Differences between design assumptions defined by Eurocode 3 and standards actual in the second half of XXth century could be the reason of underestimation of loads, which leads to lack of general stability of cantilever columns of the barrier. The structure and its technical condition, as well as conclusions of the performed analysis and methods of structure repair are shown in details.
