22. Neutron imaging and PGAI methods applied to water absorption measurement on historic construction materials: first results and potentiality
Dr Francesca Sciarretta (Department of Design and Planning in Complex Environments, Università Iuav di Venezia)
There is a strong demand for knowledge and diagnostics on architectural heritage buildings to be obtained mostly with non-destructive techniques, especially for large and complex assets. The motivation is to physically preserve materials and get an information picture as extensive as possible. From this viewpoint the modelling of a heritage building, be it numerical or physical or both, is...
Ms Sara Creange (Rijksmuseum)
A group of four South- and Southeast Asian bronze religious statues in the collection of the Rijksmuseum were subjected to white beam neutron tomography and energy selective scans at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (2016) and are proposed for further tomography-guided neutron diffraction studies at ENGIN-X (projected 2018). Neutron techniques are well-suited for this study group, because of the ease...
Mr Julio Marin (Centro Atómico Bariloche, CNEA, Av. Ezequiel Bustillo 9500, Bariloche, Argentina)
The only neutron imaging facility in Argentina is placed at the RA6 research reactor which is located in the Bariloche Atomic Centre, Argentina. In 2010, the reactor’s core was upgraded and its power increased to 1 MW, for that reason all its associated facilities were redesigned. The neutron beam of the neutron imaging facility uses a radial extraction tube and has a double cone collimator...
