Description

During the execution of the Pont de Candí Viaduct stabilisation works, Eptisa installed an extensive Auscultation System in order to monitor the foundations, infill, drainage structure, the pile blocking structures, as well as the previously and newly built structures.

A total of 400 instrumentation devices have been installed, with those of an electrical type (340 units) being automated and a control system managed by the “SAYTL” program, designed by Eptisa, being fitted. This enables the system to be managed and obtained the results remotely and/or online in real time from the sensors, as well as the automatic transmission of alarms when values being exceeded.

In addition, an extensive levelling network that monitors more than 200 points on the ground and on structures has been installed. The System has been designed and installed with a view to long-term operation, namely as long as the working life of the viaduct itself.
