Requirements for the fasteners used in grounding connections in transport infrastructures

Requirements for the fasteners used in grounding connections in transport infrastructures

Mechanical fixings used in transport infrastructures must keep their properties in unfavorable conditions, which get even worse if they are part of a grounding electrical circuit. In order to clarify the regulatory status of these elements, an analysis of the relevant regulations has been performed, including the technical specifications and conditions of use.

Assessment of fireproofing solutions for pipe penetrations

Assessment of fireproofing solutions for pipe penetrations

The fire resistance of walls and floor slabs is compromised in those points where pipes go through, so if it is critical to guarantee their integrity in case of fire, specific sealing elements such as intumescent collars must be used. The evaluation has required to determine on a case-by-case basis how much fire resistance time can be expected according to the type of collar, material and geometry of the pipe, and components and geometry of the wall or floor.

Maintenance checklists for building facilities

Maintenance checklists for building facilities

In a building, the facilities are the components that have a shorter service life, so they must be subjected to a stricter maintenance discipline than the rest of construction elements. In order to perform an adequate preventive maintenance for the correct operation of the facilities of a building, these 75 checklists compile the operations to be carried according to the nature of the inspected equipment, indicating the recommended periodicity.
