Optical techniques applied to the study of building materials and to the inspection of civil structures
thesisposted on 01.11.2019 by Mauro Facchini
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Where the evaluation of the mechanical properties and behaviour of building materials is concerned, there is still not a universally accepted solution for making such measurements. Optical diagnostic techniques are particularly attractive for a non-destructive evaluation of a surface's state and the detection of incipient damage. Non-contact, high precision measurements and full-field of observation are features that can bring enormous advantages in experimental tests. [Continues.]
