PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The work consists in the construction of a wall system of temporary micropiles – running along the top of each is a reinforced concrete beam that gives further strength to the micropile system. A strut and tie system has been incorporated in the micropile structure by means of a steel “I” section beam jointed to the reinforced concrete beam. Excavating the side slope to the correct height represented the main challenge – Studio Masera Ingegneria developed “ad hoc” geotechnical software to simulate conditions during the digging phases and the behaviour of the micropile wall system.
