Water-Driven Debris Impact Forces on Structures: Experimental and Theoretical Program.

Water-driven debris generated during tsunamis and hurricanes can impose substantial impact forces on structures that are often not designed for such loads. This presentation covers the design and results of an experimental and theoretical program to quantify these potential impact forces. Two types of prototypical debris are considered: a wood log and a shipping container.
Full-scale impact tests at Lehigh University were carried out with a wooden utility pole and a shipping container. The tests were carried out in-air, and were designed to provide baseline, full-scale results. A 1:5 scale shipping container model was used for in-water tests in the Oregon State University large wave flume. These tests were used to quantify the effect of the fluid on the impact forces.
Results from both experimental programs are presented and compared with theoretical predictions. The analytical predictions are found to be in sufficient agreement such that they can be used for design. A fundamental takeaway is that the impact forces are dominated by the structural impact, with a secondary affect provided by the fluid.

Sapienza Universita di Roma 6/27/2013 Contact: Clay Naito (cjn3@lehigh.edu) 62 Conclusions Simple formula for design impact forces validated by experimental data Assumptions are conservative Container contents don’t affect impact force significantly, although duration can be increased Results indicate fluid doesn’t affect impact force substantially Other conservative assumptions compensate for slight conservatism in ignoring it Results are the basis for the proposed debris impact forces in ASCE 7
