The conservation of monuments and historic buildings is necessary to preserve our cultural heritage for future generations. However, this is not always easy. The aim of the EU-funded HOLAHERIS project aims to make the safeguarding and protection of cultural heritage structures less expensive, faster and more reliable. Specifically, it will develop innovative integration of 3D documentation data for rapid numerical model generation of the structures. It will also develop innovative integration of structural health monitoring and numerical modelling for decision-making in conservation. In addition, HOLAHERIS will explore advanced numerical procedures for the seismic assessment of historical buildings, accounting also for material degradation due to environmental actions.
Impacts & Results
The HOLAHERIS project proposes a holistic structural analysis method for cultural heritage structures conservation, introducing an original multidisciplinary framework that will make the safeguard and protection of cultural heritage structures less expensive, faster and more reliable than state-of-the-art approaches. These features will allow to apply smart management to a wider range of cultural heritage structures. Scientific novelties will be introduced through the following 4 objectives: (1) innovative integration of 3D documentation data for rapid numerical model generation of cultural heritage structures, (2) innovative integration of SHM and numerical modelling for decision-making in cultural heritage structures conservation, (3) sub-modelling-based stochastic dynamic analysis for seismic assessment of cultural heritage structures, (4) modelling environmental deterioration in historic building materials and composite strengthening systems.
