Mathematical analysis of measured displacements with emphasis on polynomial interpolation
Boštjan Kovačič, Rok Kamnik, Zdravko Kapović, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: At the Faculty of Civil Engineering, the University of Maribor, in the Centre for Geodesy, we have been primarily dealing with the study of displacements and application of results on deformations and mathematical analyses for the last 10 years. According to these results, we wanted to find a connection between displacements and resulting deformations in mathematical terms. For this purpose, experimental load-bearing test of a concrete girder was carried out step by step up to crack. Additionally, concrete girder was analytically modelled and also photogrammetric, geodetic, and physical methods were compared. During the process of analyzing the results, further polynomial interpolation was performed through which the displacements in the intermediate stages were calculated. Polynomial interpolation can also help in accomplishment of load-bearing experiments of larger structures.

Coupled nonlineary problems in finite element analysis - a case study
Ivana Atanasovska, Dejan Momčilović, Meri Burzić, Tomaž Vuherer, 2012, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The paper describes the Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis of elastic plastic deformation of steel tube impact absorbers for railway vehicles. Experiment investigation is used as a basis for FEM modelling and simulation. The developed FEM model includes material nonlinearity (plasticity), nonlinear contact and large deformation of finite elements. All aspects used in the absorber FEM model are explained in detail. The finite element analysis results for a chosen absorber are presented and discussed. The developed model opens the possibilities for future investigations of similar problems.

Deformation analysis of bridges in exceptional transport in Slovenia
Rok Kamnik, Boštjan Kovačič, Andrej Štrukelj, 2010, short scientific article

Abstract: In August 1999 an exceptional transportation of two steamers of 666 tonnes was performed from the Port of Koper to the Nuclear power plant in Krško. The transport covered a distance of about 200km and represented one of the largest exceptional transports in Slovenia ever. Finding the best route represented one of the major issues, because the steamers had to cross more than 50 problematic sections and bridges, most of which have not been designed for such heavy loads. It was necessary to load-test almost all bridges on the route to determine whether those bridges need any extra supports or not. Consequently, a logistic operator has an important and indispensable role and becomes a co-modeller of logistic service. A deformation analysis or a polynomial interpolation of vertical displacements could also be used. Therefore, a laboratory load test of a concrete plate was made. The concrete plate was loaded with hydraulic cylinder PZ 100 with extensiometer up to 21kN. Every increase of load by 3kN was measured with Nikon Ser 800 total station.

GNSS monitoring of geologically demanding areas
Boštjan Kovačič, Boško Pribičević, Rok Kamnik, 2016, original scientific article

Abstract: Displacement research using the three-dimensional global navigation satellite system (GNSS) as part of geodetic monitoring is becoming the key investigation for establishing a cause-and-effect relationships model between external natural factors, on the one hand, and the criteria that describes the level of functionality and safety of the observed natural or artificial object, on the other, in cases of motion of an object in space and time. The main objective of the deformation analysis is to confirm the stabilities of the reference points of a geodetic network, which are used to determine the movements of the control points that are stabilized on the observed objects. The assumption about the stabilities of certain reference points must be based on reasonable grounds, underpinned by measurements and proven by numerical methods. This is one part of the results of the deformation analysis when determining the extent of the movements and deformations. To do this a transformation is used in which a comparison is made between the coordinates of the points for two separate epochs. On the basis of the estimated transformation parameters, possible movements can be concluded within the reference points, i.e., on whether the datum parameters have changed. After confirming the stability of the geodetic network the coordinate differences of identical points measured within the different time windows can be determined as displacements and/or deformations of an object. In this paper one viaduct was assessed through geology and tectonic activities and also a load test of the viaduct was performed. The viaduct is in a quite active region, but the load test showed that the bridge response to the load is as expected.
