LAB 2. Laboratory for the Survey and Diagnostics of Cultural and Environmental Heritage

The Lab 2 is focused on all the aspects related to the study of the territory and the environment in the various natural and infrastructural components. The laboratory is equipped with equipment dedicated to investigations and verifications with non-invasive and non-destructive methods of preservation of buildings, architectural and archaeological heritage and landscape and is concerned with survey, monitoring, diagnostics, conservation and restoration processes.

Particular attention is paid to the transfer of know-how on knowledge methodologies and ways of operating for the seismic improvement of buildings in traditional construction techniques, as well as on the preparation of guidelines – based on a research work on materials and construction systems, in particular in southern Italy, and post-earthquake reconstructions – on the subject of seismic safety and improvement of the pre-modern building heritage, that is, realized with traditional construction techniques.
