Finite element modeling of existing masonry towers: The “Asinelli Tower” = Modelación en elementos finitos de torres existentes en mampostería: La “Torre Asinelli”

Recent technological developments in mechanical investigation techniques and nondestructive monitoring of masonry buildings provide today an amount of information, unthinkable up until yesterday. Likewise the techniques of automated laser survey allow a rapid and precise definition of the geometry o...
