The Port of Barcelona is the biggest port in Spain. Its development seeks to create new usable spaces requiring geotechnical monitoring. Due to the geotechnical and environmental context of the port facilities, it is necessary to carry out an exhaustive control of the conditions of the ground and the structures that are founded on it.
Monitoring services have been provided to the site consisting of a tensile-deformational control of the ground and the structure of the building.
- Inclinometers on the ground and retaining elements.
- Incremental extensometers
- Control of pore pressure in the ground by means of automated rapid response piezometers.
- Control of settlement by means of deep levelling milestones.
