Noninvasive Sensing Techniques 2012

Description

The preservation of both the cultural heritage and civil infrastructures is based on an accurate monitoring and diagnostics of the structure with the aim to provide information on materials and state of deterioration and to manage situations after and during crisis events.

The SI aims at presenting the state-of-art and novel instrumentation, sensing techniques, as well as data processing approaches to perform nondestructive diagnostics and monitoring of the surface and of the internal status of the structure. Furthermore, attention will be posed to the integration of the classical geophysical techniques with new emerging surface and subsurface sensing techniques for a multidepth, multiresolution, and multiscale monitoring. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The state of art and progress of the geophysical techniques (self-potential, EMI, ERT, GPR) in the framework of the cultural heritage and civil engineering diagnostics with a focus on the novelty of the instrumentation and data acquisition/processing techniques and on the presentation of applications of high cultural/technical interest
  • Approaches based on the integration of geophysical techniques, stress wave tests (sonic and ultrasonic), and infrared thermography
  • Diagnostics for the study of artistic artefacts and in general of the surface of the structure, based on hyperspectral and multispectral imagery, infrared reflectography, infrared thermography, and other high frequencies electromagnetic techniques
  • Integration of GPR and stress wave tests with chemical and physical analyses for the characterization of materials and constructive techniques of monuments and civil structures
  • Techniques of high-resolution digital seismic noise measurement for the identification of resonance frequencies of buildings
  • Active (SAR, lidar) and passive (traditional aerial image to multispectral/hyperspectral data) satellite and airborne data processing for global vision of the structure
