The Bridge Management System-PONTI has been implanted in the Area of Conservation for the Ministry of Public Works in the Regional Government of Navarra.
The field works have consisted in fulfilling, in a joint venture with SERTENCA, the inventory and main inspection of the structures which are managed by the Regional Government.
The inspection reports detail the damages observed in each structure and state an 'Index of Damage', which is a scale when greater the number worse the state of the structure. This is obtained pondering the seriousness of the damages observed along with the importance of the element affected. This takes into consideration the structural safety, durability, service behavior, user safety, scour levels, etc.
The implantation of the PONTI system shall permit the definition of future preferential actions and therefore manage the economic evaluation of repair costs.
Hence, the final phase of the works has consisted in the fulfillment of several special inspections on a series of specific structures from which the damage index levels were greater.
