El grup se centra en el cicle de vida de grans projectes d'infraestructures civils modernes des d'una perspectiva global, que implica la planificació; disseny; construcció; vida útil i explotació; manteniment i desmuntatge i el reciclatge, tenint en compte aspectes econòmics, socials, ambientals, de qualitat i de salut i seguretat. Aquest grup té una perspectiva global i objectius per desenvolupar mètodes i tecnologies de gestió que es poden aplicar a qualsevol infraestructura civil com ara carreteres, línies ferroviàries, ponts, preses, canals, túnels, estructures subterrànies i edificis civils.

    To make periodic inspections of the buildings is useful to quantify the extent to which deficiencies are severe or not, in order to facilitate decision making and prioritize interventions. In previous works by the authors ...
  • Industrialized construction of medium span concrete bridges using movable false work 

    Turmo Coderque, José (Springer, 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Modern geometrical requirements for high capacity ground infrastructure, as highways or high-speed train lines, imply increasing numbers of long tunnels and viaducts in mountainous countries. Moreover, for the sake of the ...
  • Structural system identification by measurement error-minimizing observability method

    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper proposes a method for the finite element model updating using static load tests under the framework of observability analysis. Previous works included measurement errors in the coefficient matrix of the observability ...
  • Performance of Distributed Optical Fiber Sensors (DOFS) and Digital Image Correlation (DIC) in the monitoring of RC structures 

    Bado, Mattia Francesco; Kaklauskas, Gintaris; Casas Rius, Joan Ramon (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2019)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Distributed Optical Fiber Sensors (DOFS) are strain measuring tools whose potential had been discovered in the latest years only, in particular related to the civil engineering field. A unique utility lies in the possibility ...
