Displacement Monitoring after a Wall Collapse (Rome)
February 14, 2018 around 5:30 pm, a retaining wall collapsed in a construction site in Rome (Balduina neighborhood, between via Livio Andronico and via Lattanzio). The collapse swallowed six cars and two residential buildings have been evacuated as precautionary measure.
Few hours after the event, the CERI Research Center of Sapienza University of Rome, in collaboration with NHAZCA, installed a Terrestrial Laser Scanner and a Terrestrial InSAR monitoring system for deformation monitoring purposes, in order to ensure the safety conditions during the restoration works.
Proud to take care of the safety conditions of our City!
