Historical constructions are a human inheritance that represent the recorded history of a country and a source of income, from tourism, for its economy. The importance of ensuring structural safety of these structures and to preserve their artistic value is not discussable.
Analysis of historical construction is more complex than analysis of newly constructed structures. There is uncertainty on the materials from which they are built, on the construction sequence, and on the events that have occurred during the lifetime of the structure. If strengthening, restoration or any other intervention is required, this should be not visible to the visitors’ eyes.
In short, analysis of historical constructions requires different and more distinguished tools than in case of new constructions. Historical constructions mean often masonry constructions. DIANA has a track of unique program that gives the possibility to analyse masonry structures in detail or as a whole, under standard or extreme loading such as earthquakes.
In addition to the historic construction specific technical data and specifications below, see also the general technical information. Our range of brochures are also available for download. Or, if you have a specific question about DIANA that you would like to ask, please use the webform.
