MetadataShow full item record
Visual documentation has been accepted as an important phase of architectural heritage conservation. Visualisation of structural characteristics and their problems, however, has gained importance in the last decade. In this study, structural characteristics are used to comprehend the characteristics of construction techniques and materials of building components. Structural failures such as loss of a structural element and cracks, and material deterioration such as loss of material and deposit are the main problems observed. Visualisation of structural characteristics and their related problems has been the basis of the methodology in this study. It is also considered important to underline the necessity of the design of a special visualisation technique peculiar to the characteristics of the monument under study.
