Abstract

The paper firstly focuses on selected results obtained by continuously monitoring the dynamic response of three ancient masonry towers in Italy in order to highlight the possible effects of changing temperature on the resonant frequencies; subsequently, the removal of environmental effects (needed for an effective performance assessment and damage detection) is addressed and discussed using the data acquired on a challenging historic tower.
