The two parallel outdoor penstocks of Perebella – Rosone are located near the “Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso” in Piemonte, Italy.
The Hong Kong Airport expansion project, currently underway, involves major land reclamation works. In order to evaluate the mechanical properties of these newly constructed columns, pressuremeter testing were undertaken.
A portion of the concrete lining of the SAN SALVATORE tunnel collapse in June 2017 due to water accumulation. It was decided to install distributed fiber optic sensors onto the tunnel liner for a continuous and automatic monitoring of the tunnel.
The Kathryn Spirit is a cargo ship currently docked in the Port of Beauharnois, 30 km from Montreal. A cofferdam had to be built around the ship to protect the St. Lawrence River from possible polution
The monitoring system gives real-time data on the behavior of the concrete containment and its steel liner. Ensuring leak-tightness are traditional sensors (in particular vibrating wire) and fiber optic sensors.
