For preservation efforts and stability assessment of historic structures, it is imperative to understand the extent of existing damages and possible modes of how they occurred. The aim of this work is to illustrate the importance of integrating documentation, nondestructive testing, and numerical modeling for damage assessment of heritage structures. In particular, this work explores the synthesis of these techniques on a plastered masonry wall in Palazzo Vecchio. Laser scanning, photogrammetry, and resolution thermal images were used to document the distribution of stones and cracks; finite distinct element modeling was used to simulate the response of the wall to a series of loading conditions. By comparing the results of simulation to existing crack patterns, theories regarding how the damage occurred were generated. View this paper
