Project Overview

Lever Arms

Project Overview

TRI has developed an economical approach to applying high loads to buried structures via the use of advantage lever arms and above ground exposure to achieve accelerate loading and realize ease of monitoring.

Project Details

The approach was developed by TRI under a NCHRP research contract, and consisted of testing buried pipes manufactured with varying degrees of recycled content and monitoring these samples for cracking behavior.

Impact: This accelerated loading approach has proven very economical and valuable as a tool to evaluate materials and structures under high compressive loads.
