Cost Action 18110 – Underground Built Heritage as catalyser for Community Valorisation

WG2 Underground Built Heritage conservation and monitoring

Leader: Alfonso Bahillo Universidad de Deusto (ES)

Co-Leader: Pawel Strumillo
Institute of Electronics Lodz University of Technology Institute of Electronics (PL)

Starting by reviewing sectoral literatures, the WG individuates the main methodological approaches and defines new research questions for the UBH conservation, which are incorporated in the case-studies assessment and in future research needs. The WG pays attention to technologies for UBH non-invasive diagnosis, innovative ICT tools for on-site monitoring tools of the cavities (sensoring) techniques for evaluating the stability of the site, integrated approaches to the stability of cavities, techniques of simulation of underground failures, detailed high-resolution visualisation and reconstruction of the more interesting items of the heritage. The WG contributes to the case-studies assessment and to the training school modules, and finally publishes the results.
