      Abstract: The first and unavoidable phase in the intervention in the Heritage and the existing building is the realization of a survey. Currently, its purpose is to build a digital geometric model in a computer system that serves to represent the built object and also serve as a geometric basis for further analysis. This paper takes a tour of the models used in building the survey data and what input and output information they use. These models are reduced to point clouds, wired-frame and curves and surfaces models. Solid modelling (BIM) is not widespread in this field given the difficulties presented by its application. All of them have in common that they codify by means of a database that includes the points of the survey and in some occasions another additional database is necessary to complete the reconstruction of the f the geometric information. This information management allows the development of computer applications that automatically analyse existing constructions based on geometry, such as the verification of the equilibrium of masonry structures. This work allows, therefore, clarifying the field that connects the geometric modelling, analytical representation and computational techniques with the architectural survey and intervention in Heritage.ResumenLa intervención en el Patrimonio y la Edificación existente tiene como primera fase ineludible la realización de un levantamiento, cuya finalidad consiste, en la actualidad, en construir un modelo geométrico digital en un sistema informático que sirva para representar el bien construido y servir de base geométrica para análisis posteriores. Este trabajo realiza un recorrido por los modelos empleados en edificación histórica para determinar las técnicas de modelado que sirven para codificar dicha información y qué información de entrada y salida emplean. Estos modelos se reducen a nubes de puntos, alámbricos y curvas y superficies, ya que el modelado mediante sólidos (BIM) no se encuentra extendido en este campo dadas las dificultades que presenta su aplicación. Todos ellos tienen en común que se codifican mediante una base de datos que incluyen los puntos del levantamiento y en algunas ocasiones es necesario otra base de datos adicional para completar la reconstrucción de la información geométrica. La gestión de esta información permite desarrollar aplicaciones informáticas que, de manera automática, realicen análisis de las construcciones existentes basados en la geometría, como el caso de la verificación del equilibrio de estructuras de fábrica. Este trabajo permite, por tanto, clarificar el campo que conecta el modelado geométrico, la representación analítica y las técnicas computacionales con el levantamiento arquitectónico y la intervención en Patrimonio, y sirve de punto de partida para futuros desarrollos que permitan la gestión de la ingente cantidad de información que se genera en un levantamiento y puede ser empleada para entender el bien en el que se interviene.

  • Printed thermoplastic modular piece, P.T.M.P. = Piezas termoplásticas
           modulares, P.T.M.P.

    • Authors: Sandra Moyano Sanz, Mercedes Valiente López
      Pages: 12 - 16
      Abstract: This research tries to design a modular part suitable for construction, with new materials and manufacturing processes. Polymers and 3D printing are the key elements in the process. It is about implanting a new model of modular part that is able to replace the conventional brick. With this research, we want to make known the new construction processes derived from 3D printing and how we can improve the existing technology. The main objective is to design a modular part, using additive manufacturing systems and plastic materials. Then we are going to determine the physical characteristics that the pieces must have, and the geometric possibilities that the manufacturing process allows us, as well as the materials that the pieces will be made. These pieces will be subject to all the actual tests to ceramic pieces, according to the current standard. Additionally, we will analyze the results obtained and compare them with an expensive ceramic brick to assess the advantages obtained. Finally, we will determine some conclusions derived from these investigations, and propose new study proposals. With this research, we intend to demonstrate that, although conventional brick are basic elements of construction and fulfils its functions perfectly, it is time to adapt the new technologies to the constructive methods.ResumenEste estudio trata de diseñar una pieza modular apropiada para la construcción mediante nuevos procesos de producción y nuevos materiales. Los polímeros y la impresión 3D son los elementos clave del proceso. Además, se estudia implantar un nuevo modelo de pieza modular que sea capaz de sustituir al ladrillo convencional. Con esta investigación queremos divulgar los nuevos procesos asociados a la impresión 3D y como podemos mejorar la tecnología existente. El objetivo principal es diseñar una pieza modular, usando sistemas de fabricación aditiva y materiales plásticos. Posteriormente vamos a determinar las características físicas que deben tener las piezas y las posibilidades en cuanto a la geometría que el proceso de producción nos permite, además de los materiales que compondrán las piezas. Estas piezas serán sujeto de todos los test estándar aplicables a las piezas cerámicas. Adicionalmente, analizaremos los resultados obtenidos y los compararemos con piezas de ladrillo de alta calidad para asegurarnos de las posibles ventajas obtenidas. Finalmente, haremos algunas conclusiones derivadas del estudio, y se harán propuestas para nuevas vías de estudio. Con la investigación tenemos la intención de demostrar que aunque los ladrillos convencionales son elementos constructivos básicos, que cumplen su función perfectamente, es momento de adaptar las nuevas tecnologías a los métodos constructivos.

  • Interchanges genesis Plan of Madrid = Génesis del plan de
           intercambiadores de Madrid

    • Authors: Javier Aldecoa Martínez-Conde, Ángeles Ruíz Lázaro
      Pages: 17 - 25
      Abstract: The public transport, as we know it today, originates from the end of the 18 th and beginning of the 19th Centuries. Initially a privilege for the aristocratic and bourgeoisie classes, public transport saw a surge in development once communication between Madrid and others distant urban centers became a necessity that demanded a more economical and accessible transport system. The increase of these services, along with the diversification of the means of transportation, quickly caused congestion problems at transfer points. Throughout the last century, these same problems have been confronted with a variety of diverse strategies and solutions. All in all, the history of intermodality in Madrid tells the story of an evolution that has allowed the urban web to unite all of its branches extending from the main gates that are now being converted the interchanges in relation with the city. From its creation in 1985, the CRTM (transport authority of Madrid), considered the intermodality to be a main priority within the following different fields of action: infrastructure, ticketing and whole image and information. Within the interchanges is where the integration efforts of the different transport modes best become a reality. In essence, interchanges play the same role in today`s cities as the gates in the walls of a centuries-old medieval city. At this moment, interchanges are the gates to the cities of the 21st Century.ResumenEl transporte público, tal como lo conocemos hoy, se origina a finales del siglo XVIII y principios del XIX. Inicialmente fue un privilegio para las clases aristocráticas y burguesas. El transporte público vio un aumento en el desarrollo una vez que la comunicación entre Madrid y otros centros urbanos distantes se convirtió en una necesidad que exigía un sistema de transporte más económico y accesible. El aumento de estos servicios, junto con la diversificación de los medios de transporte, causó rápidamente problemas de congestión en los puntos de transferencia. A lo largo del siglo pasado, estos problemas se han enfrentado con una variedad de diversas estrategias y soluciones. En definitiva, la historia de la intermodalidad en Madrid cuenta la historia de una evolución que ha permitido a la red urbana unir todas sus ramas y convertir sus accesos principales en los principales puntos de intercambio con la ciudad. Desde su creación en 1985, el CRTM (autoridad de transporte de Madrid), consideró la intermodalidad como una prioridad principal dentro de los siguientes campos de acción: infraestructura, emisión de billetes, imagen corporativa e información del sistema. En los intercambiadores es donde los esfuerzos de integración de los diferentes modos de transporte se convierten en realidad. En esencia, los intercambiadores de transporte desempeñan actualmente en Madrid el mismo papel que las puertas en las murallas de una ciudad medieval de siglos

  • Masonry structures assesment and photogrammetry. Ca-se study: San Millán
           de Segovia = Evaluación de estructuras de fábrica y levantamiento
           fotogramé-trico. Caso de estudio: San Millán de Segovia

    • Authors: Miriam Guerra Martín, Julián García Muñoz
      Pages: 26 - 31
      Abstract: The advanced technology of the new photogrammetric systems, whose progressive improvements could be due to both better resolution of the new cameras and the recent development of sophisticated interpolation algorithms, permits nowadays register not only the general aspect of the building architecture plan and elevations but also, learning in detail the geometry of the parts that integrate the building, and more significantly, the main elements of its structure. In fact, it has a great interest in many areas, and specially in masonry structures, where stability analysis require detailed information about the structural joints of the materials that set the element as well as the specific geometry of the junction that appears between the contact of one block with another. In this work, we demonstrate that a complex photogrammetry technique can be used as a geometric base to analyze masonry structures. The San Millan de Segovia's church is used as an example of structure for the study. This study addresses the different parts of the process, from the photogrammetric lifting to the simplification processes used for implementing this procedure automatically to any type of structure, pointing out the operational simplicity that this technique allows.ResumenLa precisión de los nuevos sistemas de registro fotogramétrico, cuya progresiva mejora puede atribuirse tanto a la elevada resolución de las cámaras modernas como al reciente desarrollo de sofisticados algoritmos de interpolación, permite en la actualidad registrar no solamente las trazas generales de la planta y los alzados de un edificio sino, además, conocer en detalle la geometría de las piezas que lo componen, y muy señaladamente de los elementos que forman su estructura. Este hecho es de gran interés en muchos campos, y especialmente en el ámbito de las estructuras de fábrica, ya que los análisis de estabilidad de éstas precisan (al menos cuando se pretende incorporar al estudio el comportamiento local) de información detallada sobre la articulación de los materiales que las componen: trabas, aparejos o geometrías específicas de los lechos en los que unas piezas entran en contacto con otras. El presente trabajo desarrolla un caso concreto, el de la iglesia de San Millán de Segovia, un edificio en el que el levantamiento fotogramétrico complejo se ha empleado como base geométrica para el análisis de la estructura de fábrica. En este estudio se desarrollan las distintas fases del proceso, desde el levantamiento hasta los procesos de simplificación geométrica necesarios para poder implementar cualquier tipo de análisis estructural de forma automática, poniendo el énfasis en las facilidades operativas que posibilita esta técnica.

  • Assessment methods for determination of the technical causes in accidents
           specially complex = Métodos de evaluación para determinación de las
           causas técnicas en siniestros de especial complejidad

    • Authors: Carlos Lozano Martínez, Javier Yuste Navarro
      Pages: 32 - 40
      Abstract: The main scope of this article is to expose an effective methodology for the investigation in complex accidents that they have happened by structural complex failures, in temporary work equipment that has been used during the building on different construction sites. This methodology is based on real cases, and due to its application and development it has allowed the determination of the technical causes that has induced the mechanism for structural collapsed with the scientific severity that it is necessary in a performance of these characteristics. Accurately by the complexity that it motivates the determination of the technical causes in singular structural failures, as well as the judicial process derived from a serious accident. It is very important that it takes into account the methodology and aspects that it has to comply for what the expert report adapts to the scope and expected expectations, basically so that expert report has the scientific rigor that it allows to demonstrate by unquestioned form the technical causes that has induced the failure. Some main aspects it must to take into account during all the process and for the making of expert report, like; visiting the accident area getting the broken pieces and rest of pieces belonging temporary work equipment or installation; permanent identification and traceability during the manipulation and tests carried out on the recovered pieces, independently of the nature, destructive or not; application of the analytical and experimental assessment methods for understanding the safety conditions of the damaged equipment, previously and in the moment of the accident, finally, an expert report writing in a simple language that allows to the different agents (judge, prosecutor, lawyer, accused) involved on the judicial process, to understand clearly how the mechanism of failure has occurred despite that they have not a technical knowledge about the topic.ResumenEn el presente artículo, se describe la metodología empleada, para la determinación con rigurosidad científica e inequívoca, de las causas técnicas que han motivado una serie de siniestros, derivados de fallos estructurales, en equipamientos y estructuras de naturaleza metálica. Para ello, y tomando de referencia dos ejemplos reales de investigaciones técnicas periciales, se especifica la metodología de investigación en siniestros de estas características, desde el instante del accidente, así como la importancia de combinar métodos analíticos y experimentales, para la convergencia en las causas técnicas que han motivado el fallo. Precisamente, por la complejidad que incorpora la determinación de las causas en fallos estructurales singulares, así como el proceso judicial derivado de un siniestro grave, es importantísimo tener en cuenta la metodología y aspectos que se deben cumplir, para que el estudio técnico pericial y dictamen final, se ajusten al objeto y expectativas previstas, fundamentalmente para que éste, disponga del rigor científico que permite demostrar de forma incontestable, cuáles fueron las causas técnicas que indujeron los mecanismos de fallo. Asimismo, el artículo desarrolla otros aspectos claves para que una investigación pericial, se lleve a cabo con la eficacia y éxito que requiere, tales como; profundidad en la investigación; recuperación y trazabilidad de las piezas fracturadas; estudio del estado del arte, con las metodologías, experiencias, y referencias a nivel internacional, europeo, y/o nacional, amplitud en el conocimiento exhaustivo y detallado sobre los requisitos reglamentarios y normativos de carácter técnico, que son de aplicación sobre el sistema/equipamiento/instalación siniestrada y por último la utilización en el informe y dictamen pericial de un lenguaje llano y sencillo, a pesar de tratarse de un siniestro derivado de causas de índole técnica.

  • The expert with the justice = El perito con la justicia

    • Authors: Francisco Gil Carrillo, Miguel Angel Hortelano Anguita, Eduardo Caldentey Gallardo
      Pages: 41 - 45
      Abstract: The expert evidence is a transmission of information that the expert makes to the judge or to a third party, in the form of an opinion so that he can assess facts or relevant circumstances in a given process. It is regulated in the LEC [1] (January 7, 2000) in articles 335 and 352. Thus the expert is configured as that person who has specific knowledge of which the court lacks and that are necessary for a proper evaluation of the process. The expert is a subject that by definition must be extraneous to the process and to the facts [2] The expert must not possess legal knowledge but if he knows the protocol that is used in judiciary proceedings in which he intervenes, in addition to have the knowledge, at least of the specialty that proves with his title and that are accurate in the test. The expert must be aware of the importance of his work in the judicial process and the value of his evidence, which can unbalance the balance of justice, with the damages and benefits inherent in the respective parties.ResumenLa prueba pericial es una transmisión de información que los perito realizan al juez o a un tercero, en forma de dictamen para que pueda valorar hechos o circunstancias relevantes en un determinado proceso. Se encuentra regulada en la LEC [1] (7 enero de 2000) en sus artículos 335 y 352. Así el perito se configura como aquella persona que dispone de conocimientos específicos de los que el tribunal carece y que resultan necesarios para una correcta evaluación del proceso. El perito es un sujeto que por definición previa debe ser ajeno al proceso y a los hechos [2]. El perito no debe de poseer conocimientos jurídicos, pero si conocer el protocolo que se utiliza en los procedimientos judiciales en los que interviene, además de tener conocimientos, al menos de la especialidad que acredite con su título y que sean precisos en la prueba [2]. El perito ha de ser consciente de la trascendencia que tiene su trabajo en el proceso judicial y el valor de su prueba, que puede desequilibrar la balanza de la justicia, con lo perjuicios y beneficios inherentes a las respetivas partes.
