Seminar “Special investigations for artifacts in C.A.P.”

The ASTM group, through SINA, has always been active with inspections aimed at verifying the state of conservation of complex structures such as bridges, viaducts and tunnels, as well as the possible subsequent development of a specific program of interventions aimed at bringing the work back into together with an adequate standard of performance and safety. The activity is aimed at ensuring the Infrastructure Manager timely information, constant specialized technical support and what is necessary to set up adequate maintenance plans. In the most recent period, national authorities have approved guidelines applicable to the case of road bridges. This renewed governmental attention has also promoted the development of an innovative approach to special investigations for reinforced concrete artefacts. of the ASTM group, an approach developed thanks to a specific line of research launched by the University of Pisa.

These innovative methodologies integrate the professionalism and experience acquired in the field by the technicians in charge of carrying out the checks, interpreting the results and the consequent proposal phase of the interventions. The study morning tries to illustrate the evaluation process as a whole.
