How the MDDS operates
High resolution digital 2D and 3D recording with a remote controlled mincrane up to a height of 25m. Professional lighting and colour controlled images enable monitoring inside historic buildings.Barbara Beckett, University of Bamberg, Germany
Non-destructive testing (NDT) uses different physical principles, methods and sensors for getting information about external and internal structure and material properties. Generally, NDT applications should be part of the global investigation of historic buildings. They do not replace other investigation techniques completely but in the case of historic monuments, NDT should be preferred instead of traditional tests on extracted samples when both types of techniques can solve the problem. In recent years, commercial systems or specifically developed systems like ground penetrating radar (GPR), impact-echo, sonics, microseismics, acoustic emission, geoelectric, active thermography and flat-jack have been applied successfully. by Christiane Maierhofer
