Laboratory development

Type: TIOP-1.3.1-07/1-2F-2008-0003

Aim: To determine the dynamic properties of soils with laboratory equipment for earthquake design of the structures, to improve the planning and designing methods of  earthworks for  public infrastructure and advanced foundation structures

Tasks, performed by the Department: Preparing procurement of tools (cyclical/dynamic triaxial device), own development of tools (resonant column device), soil dynamics studies

Duration: 2009-

Project partners: MÁV Inc., Road Management and Coordination Directorate (UKIG), National Public Road Technical and Information non-profit company (ÁKMI) (ad hoc principals)

 

Contract research:

 

1. Development of public road bridge management system, development of MÁV bridge management system

Type: Industrial commission

Aim: To optimize the utilisation of funds assigned for the maintenance of bridges on public roads and railways

Tasks, performed by the Department: Planning bridge management systems, creating a bridge management database, performing on-site surveys, creating a condition assessment system, analysing the deterioration process, creating a bridge assessment system, ranking, optimising processes

Duration: 1999-2005 and from 2001

2. Application, analysis, evaluation, development of theoretical and practical structure diagnostic examinations

Type: Industrial commission

Aim: To analyse the condition dependent behaviour of supporting structures, to compare the real structures and computational models, to improve models by avoiding faults, inaccuracies, and unjustified details

Tasks, performed by the Department: Performing static-dynamic resistance test, analysing and evaluating the finite element modelling with the utilisation of actual measurement results, analysing, evaluating the supporting strength and service-life effect of structural faults

Duration: Continuous

Principals: Magyar Közút Non-profit Inc., other ad hoc industrial principals

 

3. Sub-programme of the Cooperation Research Centre for development of Bridge Substructure Designing Methods

Type: Industrial commission

Aim: To develop advanced bridge abutments and foundations, corresponding with more economic technologies and the new European standards (Eurocodes), using modern 3D and improved 2D softwares

Tasks, performed by the Department: Analysing the reliability of pile design, completing comparative evaluation of pile designing methods, performing resistance tests, developing the processing, performing, complex modelling of bridge supports, joining earthworks and other geostructures

Duration: 2004-

Principals: Hídépítő Inc., HBM Soletanche Bachy Ltd.
