Road and rail transport infrastructures have always been part of the mission of the P&P Group.
In particular, for the period of the operational phase of bridges, P&P supports the infrastructure manager of the road in all the control, verification and monitoring activities necessary to assure the safety of the bridge and to help a more effective management of maintenance operations.
P&P develops the different analysis steps required by a correct “Bridge management process”, which may include one or more of the following activities according to the outcomes of the evaluation process depending on the results provided by the individual operations carried out in sequence:
Execution of experimental investigations and numerical analyses
Seismic vulnerability study
Bearing capacity assessment and transitability certification
Assessment of exceptional transport transitability and evaluations of possible transit restrictions
