Expansion Joints for Aqueducts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I am designing some box-type aqueducts with expansion joints varying from 40 mm to125 mm. There are concerns about the water-tightness of normal expansion joints with elastomeric/neoprene seals. I shall be grateful if someone could provide me information/examples for expansion joints in water-retaining structures esp. aqueducts/bridges. Maximum head of water is 2 m.

Thank you,
