PANOPTIS : Decision Support System for increasing the Resilience of Road Infrastructure
PANOPTIS is an EU-funded Research Project aiming to leverage existing tools and services (e.g., climate models, modeling of extreme events and their impacts, Early Warning Systems (EWS), Structural Health sensors) as well as novel technologies (terrestrial and satellite imaging for inspection, advanced machine learning and data fusion techniques, etc.) in view of delivering an integrated platform that can be applied to Road Infrastructure, addressing multi-hazard risk understanding, smart prevention and preparedness, faster, adapted and efficient response.
Grid Engineers partner with the Soil-Mechanics Laboratory of NTUA to act as the geotechnical experts of the Consortium (which is led by AirBus). We are involved in the following tasks:
- Investigation of rainfall effects on the stability of geostructures and development of a simple approach for evaluating slope movements Induced by rainfalls and groundwater variations.
- Seismic performance of geostructures with due consideration of ground-water conditions (i.e., seismic response after a wet/dry season)
- Single and multi-hazard fragility analysis of slopes
