Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] It gives a new non-invasive investigation technique, safe and fast, for unique identification and integrity monitoring of articles composed of rigid materials, such as pottery, statues and stone objects in general, metal or wood. The technique exploits the ability of objects to vibrate when excited by an artificial external source and is based on the study of induced damped oscillations. Thus it is possible to construct a sonic footprint of the objects themselves, a kind of DNA that can identify them without any doubt and possibly can also assess the status of mechanical consistency (or integrity) as monitoring over time. The application of in situ methodology is possible thanks to the use of a dedicated instrumentation which, in short times and with high accuracy,
