Targeted adaptation interventions for various types of structures.
The inadequacy and structural vulnerability of buildings are still too widespread in Italy, a high-risk country in which seismic events such as earthquakes, even minor ones, are often disastrous both from the point of view of damage to the urban heritage and historical but also above all on a human level.
Ricam Group follows all the steps to seismically adapt a building, starting from the tests for the characterization of the materials, to the vulnerability analysis, then moving on to the structural and plant design, up to the executive intervention.

(from analysis to intervention) necessary to make the properties safe.
Structural and material investigations through invasive and non-invasive tests.
The good result of a structural recovery project bases its validity above all in the initial phase of knowledge through an in-depth campaign of preliminary on-site tests, without which it is difficult to correctly interpret both the mechanical resistance of the materials and the vulnerabilities inherent in the building quality .
Ricam Group, thanks to the vast typology of tests carried out, is able to choose the optimal diagnostic technique depending on the structural type, in order to deepen the knowledge of the different building phases of the existing structure, the quality and resistance of the materials, and the forms of degradation to which it is subject.
SEMI DESTRUCTIVE TESTS
The strategic approach and the operational plan
For too many years the Italian industrial building heritage has been abandoned to itself.
Similarly to what is already foreseen for production plants, the presence of a monitoring and maintenance plan is also necessary for civil structures that allows for constant interventions to be carried out over time and with a slight economic impact, which allow serious restructuring interventions to be avoided. , often of very high amounts, which weigh on the pockets of entrepreneurs, public and private bodies, and citizens.
Ricam Group draws up the maintenance plan and aims to extend the average life of the building itself.
– 3D laser scanner survey
– Invasive tests and evaluation
– Finite element simulation
– Asset DB
– Operational risk assessment
– Operational continuity assessment
– Support system
– Definition of maintenance program
– Support for the definition of tenders
– Management support
– Support for certification activities
3D modeling of existing systems and structures.
Through manual on-site surveys and laser scanner technology, Ricam Group is able to obtain a 3D model with specific software of the existing plant and structural elements.
The digital projection is implemented within the point cloud to obtain an always updated three-dimensional geometric model that can be queried by the user: a sort of “virtual twin” that allows the customer to always have the maintenance status of the building under control. building but above all to predict the times and costs of each individual intervention.
The operator can query the graphic interface and receive information relating to any structural element.
By associating a monitoring system, it can also interact in real time with the network of sensors installed in the field that send feedback on the health status of the building.
WHEN IT'S CAN IT BE DONE?
Reverse Engineering can be implemented both for new buildings but also and above all for existing ones, where the documentation has often been lost over time or does not adhere to what was actually built.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Re-extraction of P&I documents and project tables
Optimization of design times in case of changes to lines and structures
Optimization of revamping project times conducted on the basis of models adhering to reality
Optimization of intervention execution times, avoiding problems and variations in execution
Rapid implementation of stress analysis, structural analyzes already having useful models for the calculation
Creation of integrated plant alarm systems or virtual training
