Rockfall gallery testing Parde 2016


Five full-scale field tests were conducted with concrete blocks weighting between 800 and 3200 kg being dropped onto the roof of a gallery structure made from reinforced concrete. The impacts were recorded using high-speed video and acceleration measurements at the falling blocks. The dataset contains the raw data as well as the analyses of the block trajectories, i.e. kinetics and dynamics. Setup of the measurements and the analyses conducted are published in Volkwein, A. "Durchführung und Auswertung von Steinschlagversuchen auf eine Stahlbetongalerie", WSL-Berichte, Heft 68, 2018.
