Aim of monitoring:
Extension of the exhibit surface at Cason del Buen Retiro was carried out through redistribution of the building floor and the excavation of three new under-stores. During restoration works the structure had to be supported by steel micro piles and new reinforced concrete walls to support the original ones. To allow a strict structural behavior evaluation over the different phases of the restoration and evaluate abnormal deformations, small variations of the original structure, and possible cracking, a comprehensive instrumentation including long gauge SOFO sensors was implemented. In particular, the SOFO sensors were used to monitor the deformations of the timber structure that support the vault of the dancing room with the outstanding fresco of Lucas Jordan (XVIII).
