Technological development for the study of heritage

The conservation of pieces of historical heritage is closely linked to the environmental conditions in which they are found. Thus, parameters such as temperature, humidity, light intensity and particulate material can deteriorate historical pieces from bronze elements to looms, through canvases and altarpieces. Therefore, it is necessary to have technology that allows the acquisition of the greatest amount of environmental data in places such as museums, to have cameras with controlled environmental parameters for preservation, and to carry out stress studies on materials due to the effect of environmental parameters.

This project proposes the development of a remote and continuous monitoring system of environmental parameters, a temperature and humidity control chamber to conserve heritage, and an aging chamber that alters the temperature, humidity and light intensity for the accelerated study of the effect of environmental parameters in materials.
