The group focus on the life cycle of large modern civil infrastructure projects from a global perspective, involving planning; design; construction; service life and exploitation; maintenance and dismantling and recycling, taking into account economical, social, environmental, quality and health and safety issues. This group has a global perspective and targets to develop management methods and technology to be applied in any civil infrastructure whatsoever (including highways, railway lines, bridges, dams, channels, tunnels, underground structures and civil buildings).

    Article
    Open Access
    When using distributed optical fiber sensors (DOFS) on reinforced concrete structures, a compromise must be achieved between the protection requirements and robustness of the sensor deployment and the accuracy of the ...
  • Methodology for development of live load models for refined analysis of short and medium-span highway bridges 

    Anitori, Giorgio; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Ghosn, Michel (2018)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The accuracy of bridge system safety evaluations and reliability assessments obtained through refined structural and finite element analyses depends not only on the accuracy of the structural model itself but also on the ...
  • BRAIN: Building Research Analysis and Information Network 

    Serrat Piè, Carles; Gibert Armengol, Vicente; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Rapinski, Jacek (International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM), 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The research we introduce in the paper is intended to model and to infer on the durability of architectural fronts, composed of the facades of buildings, by designing a predictive system. The estimation is based on survival ...
  • On the selection of significant variables in a model for the deteriorating process of facades 

    Serrat Piè, Carles; Gibert Armengol, Vicente; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon; Rapinski, Jacek (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    In previous works the authors of this paper have introduced a predictive system that uses survival analysis techniques for the study of time-to-failure in the facades of a building stock. The approach is population based, ...
  • Performance-Indikatoren für die Bewertung von Strukturen aus Konstruktionsbeton auf europäischer Ebene nach COST TU1406 

    Strauss, Alfred; Mandic Ivankovic, Ana; Mold, Lisa; Matos, Jose C.; Bergmeister, Konrad; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (2018-02)
    Article

    Quality control management of structural concrete, as well as of concrete road bridges shows a lot of differences within European countries. This article provides not only an overview of the state of the art, but presents ...
  • Precast segmental bridges 

    van der Horst, Aad; Burtet, Pascal; Primault, Didier; Turmo Coderque, José (International Federation for Structural Concrete (fib), 2017)
    Book
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The concept of precast segmental bridges is not new: the first application documented was from the mid-1940s, designed by Eugene Freyssinet and built over the river Marne near Luzancy in France, between 1944 and 1946. ...

    Turmo Coderque, José (2017)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Modern geometrical requirements for high capacity ground infrastructure, as highways or high speed train lines, imply increasing number of long tunnels and viaducts in mountainous countries. Moreover, for the sake of the ...
  • Modelling construction of footbridges with cables 

    Lozano Galant, José Antonio; Turmo Coderque, José (Technishe Universität Berlin, 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The usual moderate dimensions of footbridges allow design architects (and sometimes engineers) to provide such structures with capricious forms. Under such circumstances, the analysis of the service state is usually very ...
