The Pro Iter Group had a rewarding time at the WTC 2019
Up to 2,500 delegates, exhibitors, visitors and ITA officials convened in Naples, Italy, for the 2019 World Tunnel Congress & Exhibition and the 45th annual General Assembly of ITA/AITES.
Pro Iter has given its contribution to the World Tunnel Congress - WTC2019 organization, with Enrico Maria Pizzarotti member of the Executive and Scientific Committees.
The Pro Iter Group team of experts in tunnelling, underground space, bim, envinronment, geotechnical engineering, risk analysis & management, had a rewarding time at the WTC2019. It has been a great opportunity for us to share our expertise in the subject area thanks to the discussion, during the congress days, with conveners, presenting papers and posters, being part of the Working Groups.
We would like to thank clients, partners and all the specialists met, for having visited our booth, for their valuable contributions and the interesting entertained discussions.
During the Oral Presentation Session WTC2019 on the Topic "Long & Deep Tunnels - Transalpine Tunnels", Eng. E.M. Pizzarotti has synthesized the construction methods and the logistic choices adopted during the detailed design of the Italian side of the Brenner Base Tunnel considering the technical, economic and time perspectives, also including the evaluation of uncertainties and potential risks ["BBT, Italian side: Construction methods for a railway 22 km long tunnel". S. Fuoco, R. Zurlo - BBT SE / M. Moja, E.M. Pizzarotti - Pro Iter].
Two other papers have been presented in the Topic "Long & Deep Tunnels": "Brenner Base Tunnel, Italian Side, Lot Mules 2-3: risk management procedures" [A. Voza & R. Zurlo - BBT SE / S. Bellini & E.M. Pizzarotti - Pro Iter] and "Brenner Base Tunnel, Italian Side: Mining methods stretches. Design procedures" [D. Marini & R. Zurlo - BBT SE / M. Rivoltini & E.M. Pizzarotti - Pro Iter].
Enrico Maria Pizzarotti also presented, during the Oral Presentation Session WTC2019 on the Topic "Archaeology, Architecture And Art In Underground Construction", the paper "The First World War Military Tunnels of the Italian-Austrian Front" [S. Pedemonte, E.M. Pizzarotti].
Furthermore, Matteo Moja, Enrico Maria Pizzarotti and Luca Soldo joined the Working Group 2 - Research activities, contributing in different topics, such as "Damages of segmental lining" (with the presentation of the SIG WG 2 Report, attachment of the SIG's magazine special WTC 2019 issue, that can be downloaded below), and "Risk Management & Contracts" (WG 2 – Research and WG3 - Contracts joint session) and "Research and innovation in underground space" (workshop: "Discussion Paper toward a Common European Research Agenda").
