  22. 22. 59 Verification test of stress load in the arches of cable-stayed Bridge o The calculation of the tension (axial force in the stay cable) is carried out from the frequency records generated in each wire vibration trial, that are obtained from the signal analysis of the installed sensors using Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and the application of the Theory of the Vibrating Wire, ignoring the own bending stiffness of cables: o This test is particularly suitable for the operating phase of cable-stayed structures, because it avoids the execution of intrusive and /or destructive trials for the determination of the stress load, with the consequent maintenance cost reduction T = k*f2 T = Axil load (N) k = Cte varying depending on the cable length and mass f = Vibratiion frecuency

During the execution of the Remodeling Works of the Passeig de Gràcia metro station in Barcelona, the Railway Infrastructure Administrator (ADIF), has requested Eptisa Instrumentation and Control, to develop the implementation of a Monitoring System, whose purpose is to control the behavior of the support structures, shielded enclosure, underground structures, land and the affections that said works may generate to the nearby dwellings, during the different phases of construction, the main objective being to guarantee the safety of the work, not only of face buildings or nearby structures, but also facing the operators themselves, maintenance personnel and users. For this, about 60 control devices have been installed distributed among inclinometers, pressure cells, vibrating rope extensometers, geopos and automatic stations for control inside the tunnel, in order to obtain information regarding the reactions of the land and structures. The results of the measurements of these devices are presented daily to the client through the SAyTL - WEB acquisition and control system, designed and developed by Eptisa Instrumentation and Control, allowing to have all the information related to the control of the work, quickly and updated. The data achieved in each of the devices were automatized, semi automatized or manually collected, depending on the sensor type; and they were managed in a SCADA configured with alert threshold and web visualization by the client. Supply and installation of the monitoring system consisted of the installation of  inclinometers (INC) in screens and micropiles,  vibrating wire extensometers in the struts,  total pressure cells (TPC) in the strut contact, display module,  leveling milestones in the screen lining,  leveling strips in the façade of the nearby buildings,  geophones in the front of the works,  topographical prisms to control coordinates and confluences by means of the automatized station in the affected tunnel and  the total pressure cells in the shoring of the structure lobby and vault.

A total of 340 instrumentation devices have been installed. Electrical-type sensors data (340 units) are automatically acquire by the SAYTL real-time control system developed by EPTISA IIC.  Structure control: tilt meters in piles, topographic prism, strain gage extensometers, fissure meter. The most of the structure control devices signal are centralized in a control station which store external data and send different alarm states to the designed authority.  Embankment control: inclinometer, sliding sensors, settlements markers, settlements plates, earth pressure cells.  Natural soil control: inclinometers, piezometers, extensometers, sliding sensors.  A wide topography leveling network has been implemented controlling more than 200 points in terrain and structures. All data was automatically received in real-time in our premises, analyzed and report to Client Technical Offices. The System has been designed and implemented with the foresight to keep it operational in the long term, covering the life of exploitation of the Viaduct itself. The scope of works also includes the geotechnical and structural monitoring of several tunnels: Lilla (2.065 m), Camp Magre (984m) and Puig Cabrer (704 m).  Design, implementation and maintenance of the Structural Health Monitoring System  Implementation of own-developed real-time SCADA system (web-based)  Data analysis and reporting in real time TECHNOLOGY USED:  DAQ electronic and software developed by our Electronic&Software Departemt  Own developed Software for the treatment and analysis of data Ingeniería Instrumentación y Control

Due to specific ground characteristics, it was necessary the control of different parameters along the embankments and structures built in the area. A total of 8 Intensive Instrumentation Sections are being installed during the construction phase. The purpose is to monitoring different parameters such as: earth pressure, embankment foundation seats, groundwater levels, interstitial pressures and horizontal and vertical movements in deep. Likewise, an extensive network of levelling milestones is being installed along the entire route, to control the seats at the top of the embankments. This monitoring project involves the installation and monitoring of more than 250 instrumentation and topography devices, during the construction phase, and with the objective of keeping them operative for the subsequent exploitation phase. Geotechnical Monitoring  Control of deep horizontal movements by 18 inclinometers pipes.  Ground pressure control at the bottom of embankments by 21 earth pressure cells.  In order to know the effects of the seasonal levels variations on the stream of the river, 28 piezometers were to control the interstitial pressure variations. For water level controls, 15 observation wells were drilled in the ground.  Control of settlements evolution, in contact with natural ground and filled embankments, were registered by 8 settlements transversal profilers (settlement lines) and 32 settlement plates.  In Romanian abutment, 6 extensometers (in two sections) were installed, in each different lithologic layers in order to know the behaviour during the embankment filling.

The main activities consisted of:  Verification of the parameters of dynamic behaviour according to the theoretical calculation model used in the construction project of the viaduct by mean of dynamic load tests  Audit of the state of the structure prior to go live, in order to analyse the existing risks and avoid failures and collapses due to hidden defects during construction phase.  Measure and control of the vertical accelerations on points, previously defined in the load test project, to obtain the vibration modes and values in each of the controlled spans.  Define specifications and settings of dynamic load tests.  Implementation of instrumentations and monitoring of the structures to be tested.  Managing of the tests and technical supervision of the data collection. In addition to the dynamic tests, it was performed a turn control on the critical sections of the board during the static load tests, using a automated acquisition system that allows measuring rotations with accuracies close to 7x10-3 mrad. Once the tests were completed, the Eptisa Technical Office analysed the data obtained, issuing the corresponding report of results, validating the structural behaviour of the bridge.  Design of the instrumentation and monitoring systems.  Perform and supervision of the dynamic load test.  Evaluation of data and Technical report about structural state of the structure TECHNOLOGY USED  Structure software tools: SAP2000  Editing tools (office)  Dynamic acquisition system (daq): Own technology developed by the electronic department.  Software for the treatment and analysis of data Ingeniería Instrumentación y Control EP136017SHM_AE_PCVIADUCTOSOBREDANUBIO_VIDIN_ENfichaWB.docx
