Civil Engineering: Building Restoration
C Tech’s software has been used to analyze and visualize multi-sensor data to guide the restoration efforts of the fourth century Baptistery, one of the oldest churches in Florence, Italy. Dual-frequency ground penetrating radar data was processed in our legacy software EVS to determine radar dispersion. The radar dispersion was combined with resistivity surveys to volumetrically map structural integrity. The analysis and visualization was used to locate fractures and voids in the domed roof structure. This work helped minimize the need for destructive testing, to better preserve the precious original mosaic tile. The analysis and visualization were provided courtesy of Geostudi Astier, srl, Livorno Italy.
