The Garisenda Tower represents one of the main symbols of the historical heritage of the city of Bologna. In 2011 an advanced monitoring system has been installed on the Tower with the purpose of monitoring the time evolution of: (i) Tower’s inclination; (ii) cracks at selected locations; (iii) stresses of the steel ties placed over the years to provide lateral confinement to the masonry. This paper aims at presenting the rationale of the monitoring system and analysing the data of the first two years of monitoring.

Abstract

The Garisenda Tower represents one of the main symbols of the historical heritage of the city of Bologna. In 2011 an advanced monitoring system has been installed on the Tower with the purpose of monitoring the time evolution of: (i) Tower’s inclination; (ii) cracks at selected locations; (iii) stresses of the steel ties placed over the years to provide lateral confinement to the masonry. This paper aims at presenting the rationale of the monitoring system and analysing the data of the first two years of monitoring.
