Inauguration of Mitre Viaduct, Buenos Aires Argentina The project consists in the elevation of a 3.8 km railway section with 2 elevated stations, connecting the centre of Buenos Aires (Argentina) with the Tigre area. The challenging time schedule, and the subsequent execution acceleration plan, have involved complex challenges and problems solution, confirming Deal, a Rizzani de Eccher parent company, as a reliable engineering provider as well as technical partner. Following an acceleration agreement imposed by the client, the initial set-up of the work had to be changed according to the new requests, responding to various needs in a very short time. The new conditions required considerable efforts in terms of engineering, partial redesign of the moulds, new launching equipment, as well as adapting other spare equipment to the new requirements. Rizzani de Eccher has then decided to implement a permanent engineering task force on site in order to improve communication with the designer, maintaining its presence for the entire duration of the construction site. The huge efforts have permitted to meet the new schedule and inaugurate the project in record time, with an official ceremony conducted personally by the President of the Republic of Argentina Macri.

Collegamento stradale Esterno all’abitato di Tivoli – Variante al Ponte degli Arci Ponte a struttura mista acciaio-calcestruzzo a due campate di lunghezza 71,85m + 71,85m, con pila centrale realizzata in carpenteria metallica La struttura è stata isolata sismicamente da Tensa con n.6 dispositivi dipendenti dallo spostamento a comportamento elasto-plastico, serie TP- EPD (Tens Pot Elasto-Plastic Device) in accordo alla EN15129. Mediante la calibrata plasticizzazione di ‘C core elements’, si è riusciti a limitare la forza sismica entrante nella struttura e ripartirla sugli elementi strutturali in funzione delle loro resistenze. Al contempo con la soluzione adottata si è riusciti a garantire una elevata dissipazione di energia in virtù dell’elevato numero di cicli isteretici senza degrado. Tivoli external link road – New Arci Bridge, Italy Two 71.85 m +71.85 m span composite bridge, supported on steel central pier. The bridge has been isolated with nos.6 displacement dependent devices with elasto-plastic behaviour, series TP-EPD (Tens Pot Elasto-Plastic Device) in according to EN 15129. Through the calibrated yielding threshold of ‘C core elements’, the design seismic force exterted on the structure has been limited and distributed to pier and abutments based on their capacity. At the same time the implemented solution guarantees an high damping due to the significant number of hysteretic cycles without deterioration.
