Abstract : A series of tests of model reinforced-concrete rings simulating culvert sections under radial loads was carried out at WES. These tests are described in Report 5 of this series. The purpose of this study was to perform nonlinear finite element analyses of these models, to compare analytical results with test results, and to produce a realistic strength design methodology for these structures.
