EXPO02 Piazza Pinocchio
EXPO02 Piazza Pinocchio, Neuchâtel
Steel piles load monitoring
Thermal-induced strain compensation
Warnings and pre-warnings
Phone call advises on warnings threshold over passing
Début des travaux:2000
Fin des travaux:2002
The “Piazza Pinocchio” has been built together with other exposition buildings on one big artificial peninsula. The belly of the whale holds the exposition dedicated to robotic and the rest of the village has been developed on two floors with steel piles, beams structure, wood walls and floors.
Objectifs de contrôle:
Real-time computer-screen picture-form results of the live loads during 18 hours a day Automatic thermal-induced strain compensation Rreal-time warnings and pre-warnings for each single pile Automatic phone call advises on warnings threshold over passing and remote monitoring for complete management of the monitoring system.
Nombre de capteurs:31
The plaza has been equiped with 31 SOFO standard sensors and 31 thermocouples. On site, Security will receive a phone call from the Smartec system in case of overpassing of pre-warnings and warnings. From Smartec's office, our IT engineer is able to completely controle the plaza monitoring.
