Smart Monitoring of Historic Structures


Historic structures constitute important part of our cultural heritage which we in turn have a duty to pass to future generations in the full richness of their authentic architecture and materials. The conservation of these structures presents a fascinating and diverse range of scientific challenges; in particular the need to protect them effectively from the environmental degradation is widely recognised. Diagnostic monitoring so far has been largely limited to acquisition of climate parameters and air pollution levels used as input into functions or models predicting damage. The limitations of the approach in assessing precisely the risk of damage to a concrete historic structure in its specific environment lead inevitably to a search for scientific methods of direct tracing damage: noninvasive, continuous, simple, economic and capable of operating in the real-world conditions.
