louis vuitton diary Center of Excellence C
Even prevailing in research activities, the Centre is characterized also by scientific technological services. is on the national and international market and offers a wide range of business services, way ahead the average of competitors.
The equipment is completed by an AUV (AutonomousUnderwater Vehicle), a torpedo that permits you to scan thebottom by a side scan sonar and multi beam bathymetry. dedicated to Geotechnical Engineering, in the national and international laboratory of excellence, is provided with all the equipment for standard testings, physical and mechanical soil characterization, but also with sophisticated equipment to perform tests under cyclic loading on large specimens , fundamental to characterize the mechanical response of the lands under seismic conditions. also has a vibrating table accompanied by a shearstack (a container that replicates the deformations of soil deposits when they are crossed by the seismic waves), currently the largest in Europe, for the execution of tests on scale models of works and geotechnical systems. The activity of the laboratory of Geotechnical Engineering is closely related to the realization of works of civil engineering and land protection. Therefore the main stakeholders of the structure are mainly companies and public administrations involved in the design and construction of major works.
Eurolab is provided with equipment enabling:
performing tests for the qualification and acceptance of anti seismic devices (elastomeric isolators, pendulum insulators heatsinks);
developing the experimentation necessary for the patent of new prototypes.
Strategical planning previewed mechanical testing facility for fatigue and static test of Cable Systems, such us a valid instrument to verify quality of materials used for extreme engineering applications ( supporting cables in the cable stayed and suspension bridges of great light cables to stabilize the floating offshore platforms ; and metal cables for air transport in the mining industry ).
Eurolab is a candidate, therefore, to assist the design of new structures by experimental tests, and to identify the dynamic behavior of prototypes, representative of existing structures, in order to interpret the phenomena of damage and choose the most appropriate method of adjustment, a crucial for mitigation of seismic risk and the preservation of buildings and historical monuments.
Eurolab, in view of potential cooperation with European and International research centers, is a valuable partner in the drafting of regulatory codes for new designs.
