Twenty trucks to test the new bridge. On 26th November 2016 the static load proofs have been made on the metallic structure plank of the new bridge on Paglia River at the “Slip Road” of Orvieto. The tests have been coordinated and directed from the tester Ing. Cristiano Aliberti and helped by Prof. Luigino Dezi, full Professor of the chair of Building Technologies and Bridges Construction of the Polytechnic University of Marches in Ancona, in the presence of public works’ councilor of Orvieto Municipality Mr Floriano Custolino, the site engineer Ing. Mauro Brustenga and Programme Director Ing. Roberto Sacco.
During the tests, lasted for all the day, using simultaneously twenty loaded trucks placed by the Contractor, they have executed tests in all the strict conditions in terms of static resistance and deformations control. The structural reaction was excellent, beyond the planning expectations.
In the light of the excellent reaction and consequently the static testing Certificate that will be written by Ing. Cristiano Aliberti, the Joint Venture made up Ceprini Costruzioni S.r.l. (group leader), Alto Soc. Coop. (man) and Gruppo Biagioli S.r.l. (man), has finished the site activities expected in the contract.
