PhD thesis in Mechanical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano succesfully defended

On January 26th, 2018, Sara Gonizzi Barsanti finalized her Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, in the framework of the JPI CHT2 project. The methodology developed aims at optimizing procedures for 3D capturing ancient structures and objects with Computer Vision methods, to obtain 3D models with a level of complexity suitable for simulations with structural analysis. This allows analyzing structures that have been modified in time, whose addition can be more easily identified for their different mechanical properties. Such data, in addition to the reading of the wall surfaces, allows generating information useful for the diachronic evaluation of an object or a structure, finalized to its 4D modeling (3D + time).

English – Italian meeting in Newcastle

Meeting in Newcastle between the Italian and English partner to share experiences and to work on the results of the CHT2 project.

Sara Gonizzi Barsanti from the Politecnico di Milano will stay for 2 weeks at Newcastle university to work on:

(i) making of a video on the English Heritage case studies;
(ii) working on the final Deliverable;
(iii) presentation of a seminar of the work done by the research group of Politecnico;
(iv) creation of a common template for the final expositions that will be held in each partner’s country.

CHT2 Final meeting

A final joint meeting was held  17th January 2018 at USAL of Avila, Spain. Each partner’s commitments were reviewed during this meeting. Examples of 4D products, visualised online through various web-gis platforms, were also presented (https://twiki.fotogrametria.agh.edu.pl/cht2/index.php/ONLINE-VISUALIZATION).  Dissemination activities for exhibition materials were finalised.  Especially for the CHT2 UK case study an exhibition will be performed as part of the Great Exhibition of the North during summer 2018 (https://getnorth2018.com/).
