Load and Temperature Effects for Hydraulic Struts Supporting Deep Excavations - Part 2

Load and Temperature Effects for Hydraulic Struts Supporting Deep Excavations - Part 2 - 31/05/12

Last month we looked at the basic theory behind calculating thermally induced load effects in steel props. This month we’re going to attempt to bring this more into Groundforce’s arena by applying these theories to one of our modular hydraulically operated props.
