In this paper we propose a combined multidisciplinary use of diagnostic techniques, such as active and passive infrared thermography, visual inspection and data coming from historical sources. This approach has been applied on several buildings in the ancient city center of L'Aquila, which suffered from a strong earthquake in 2009. These buildings are characterized by different age and construction features. This integrated monitoring is able to locate different materials, hidden architectural structures, presence of humidity, cracks, debonding and so on. A comparison of the results can help in assessing the specific risk linked to a particular type pf construction.

Abstract

In this paper we propose a combined multidisciplinary use of diagnostic techniques, such as active and passive infrared thermography, visual inspection and data coming from historical sources. This approach has been applied on several buildings in the ancient city center of L'Aquila, which suffered from a strong earthquake in 2009. These buildings are characterized by different age and construction features. This integrated monitoring is able to locate different materials, hidden architectural structures, presence of humidity, cracks, debonding and so on. A comparison of the results can help in assessing the specific risk linked to a particular type pf construction.
