Re: NDT Technique in Antiquity or Arcaeology Dear Mr. Hazizi,
Various techniques are available and some are in use in the area of artwork, antiquities, historical buildings etc., mainly variations / adaptations of industrial techniques (such as UT, Acoustic Emission, Acousto-Ultrasonics, Impact Echo, ...), but also specialized methods such as Laser Doppler Vibrometry, hologram interferography, shearography, thermography, etc.). Proper selection depends on the item to be examined, and type of defects seeked. European Community-funded R&D work is currently underway aiming to integrate optimized techniques towards artwork conservation strategies (see http://www.iesl.forth.gr/programs/laseract/index.asp). If you need further info, you could contact me with more details.
