Ian D. Moore

Profile

Dr Moore is a Civil Engineer specializing in Geotechnical Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, Non-linear soil-structure interaction, and analysis and design of buried infrastructure, polymer structures, and shell structures. Recent research interests include development of design methods for joints in polymer, metal and concrete culverts, identification of limit states for thermoplastic pipes, soil-pipe interaction and ground movements during pipe bursting, hydrofracture pressures, pulling forces and and axial response of pipes installed using horizontal directional drilling, strength of deteriorated steel and reinforced concrete culverts, performance and design of liners used to repair sewers, water pipes and culverts, non-linear time-dependent models for thermoplastics (pipes and geosynthetics), and behaviour of buried oil and gas pipelines under ground movements.

Projects

  • Stability of Liners Used to Repair Damaged Sewers and Water Pipes.
    • Outline: Polymer liners fitted within damaged sewers will respond to external fluid loads, and to changes in earth loads as a result of vehicle loads on the ground surface or deterioration of the backfill in the vicinity of the buried structure. Past work has established the role of damaged pipe and liner geometry on both resistance to buckling under external fluid pressures, and local bending under external earth pressures. Laboratory testing and nonlinear finite element analysis is being used to understand how stability is influenced by erosion voids in the vicinity of the buried sewer pipe. Limit states are now being investigated for water and gas supply pipes repaired using cast in place liners, considering the influence of internal pressure, ground movements and soil-pipe-liner interaction.
    • Funding: NSERC Discovery Grant, NSERC Strategic Research Grant, Hamilton City.
    • Collaborators : A. Fam, E. Allouche.
    • Duration: 1996 - present
    • Students: K. El Sawy (PhD, 1996), J. Lee (MSc, 2002) , M. Law (PhD, 2004), Z. Tan (MSc, 2007), N. Ampiah (MSc, 2008), M. Brown (PhD in progress).
  • Frost damage to buried pipe infrastructure
    • Outline: Analytical and experimental work is being used to understand stability limit states for buried infrastructure responding to frost loads. Thermo-viscoelastic analysis has been developed for HDPE to permit calculation of temperature-induced deformations or stresses. Three dimensional finite element analyses are being used to examine cast iron pipe damage as a result of differential ground movements caused by different levels of frost susceptibility..
    • Funding: NSERC Discovery grant
      Collaborators: M. Green, A. Take
    • Duration: 2003 - present
    • Students: H. Mwana'gonze (MSc, 2004), S. Trickey (MSc, 2005), M. Sarai (PhD in progress)
  • Soil-structure Interaction During HDPE Pipe Installation Using Pipe Bursting
    • Outline: Pipe bursting involves expansion to break and displace existing brittle pipes, and pulling into place of a replacement HDPE pressure pipe. Analysis of the cavity expansion and contraction is being used to investigate radial pressures on the HDPE replacement pipe to permit estimation of pulling forces, peak stresses and maximum pulling lengths.

  • Pulling Forces and Hydraulic Fracture During Horizontal Directional Drilling
    • Outline: Horizontal directional drilling involves opening of a pilot hole using a horizontally directed drilling rig, hole expansion using a back-reamer, and pulling into place of a new HDPE pipe. Field measurements and finite element modeling are being used to investigate pulling forces on HDPE pipes pulled-into-place. Finite element studies are examining both blowout and brittle fracture of soil surrounding the borehole due to excessive mud pressures.

  • Analysis of pipe and culvert coupling systems
    • Outline: High density polyethylene pipes used for stormwater sewers and highway culverts are fitted with a variety of mechanical and pressure rated couplings. The design of these couplings depends on the interaction of the two pipes, as well as the mechanical coupler and/or rubber gasket. Finite element analysis is being developed for use in coupling design, and specific connection problems such as vertical forces at vertical risers are being investigated.

PAST ENGINEERING PROJECTS

  • Limit States Design of Thermoplastic Culverts
    • Outline: Laboratory testing to define limit states (local bending and local buckling), 2D and 3D finite element analysis and evaluations of published field studies are being used to develop design methods for high density polyethylene and polyvinyl chloride culvert products (being incorporated in the AASHTO Highway Bridge Design Code).

  • Use of Type IV bedding for reinforced concrete pipes
    • Outline: The use of uncompacted native fill to backfill reinforced concrete pipes was investigated through field tests and finite element analysis

  • Analysis and Design of Loadout Tunnels Under Ore Stockpiles
    • Outline: Bulk solids are often removed from ore stockpiles using flexible metal or rigid concrete loadout tunnels. The design of the tunnels and the bulk-solids flow requires an assessment of earth pressures in and under the stockpiles. Finite element studies are being used to understand earth pressures during and after initial filling, unloading and refilling.

  • Response of Silo Structures under Bulk Solid Loading.
    • Outline: Work has been conducted to compute the loads on silos when filled with bulk solids, assess the buckling strength under the action of vertical shear loads (taking into consideration the stabilizing effects of the bulk solid), and determine the shell response resulting from non-uniform solid-shell friction properties.
