Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Sciences staff has installed passive air sampling tubes in an area in Madrid. These passive tubes have filters which will take samples of air. The filters will be analysed later and they will let us to know about pollution of Madrid (specially NO2).
PaviNOx (ANDECE) has visited our installations at Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Sciences in Madrid to see the platforms and installations of LIFE Photoscaling project. Marta Castellote has shown them the current state and they have discussed about concrete pavements. PAviNOx web and ANDECE web.
Once per season, measurement devices are calibrated. This process is carried out by placing the four devices in the place where two weather stations from Madrid City Council are located. One of these locations is in Madrid (Arturo Soria street) and the other one is in Arganda del Rey. Our four devices register data during, at least, a week and these ones are compared with […]
Today, a person from Breinco has come to the IETcc to know the results we have obtained and collected until now. Marta Castellote and Eva Jiménez have explained and solved every question. Then, we have visited the three bank of proofs and the rest of platforms in Madrid.
Floor slip resistance testing is the science of measuring the coefficient of friction (or resistance to slip accidents) of flooring surfaces, either in a laboratory (before or after installation) or on floors in situ. Flooring is tested using a tribometer (floor slip resistance tester) to discover if there is a high propensity for slip and fall accidents on it. In this case, the used device […]
Today, another producer, in this case Financiera y Minera, has come at the Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Science for a meeting with Marta Castellote and Eva Jiménez. They have shown the results until now.
After the technical meeting where the Phostoscaling Project and the results have been presented, the people from Cristal, Madrid City Council and UPM (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) have visited the platform. There were placed all the materials and, of course, one of them was Cristal.
Today, has took place at the Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Science the meeting with one of the seven producers, Cristal in this case. Firstly, Marta Castellote has explained the main features of the Photoscaling Project and then, Eva Jiménez has shown the results up until now. Staff from the UPM (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) and Madrid City Council have also attended.
Today, we have met with UPM (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) and Madrid City Council at IETcc (Eduardo Torroja Institute for Construction Science). Topics such as next actions to perform, tests, expositions and meetings have been covered.
From the first time, one of the tasks in LIFE Photoscaling project was simulating real life conditions over our products. That aim includes the effects of environmental conditions, vehicles abrasion and also the cleaning by City Council workers. Today, this last condition has been simulated. The process of cleaning is divided in two ones: 1. Cleaning the “Leaching Bank of Proofs”. This action has been […]
