Unformatted text preview: heritage. Prior attempts in preserving these cultural heritage monuments have led to limited effectiveness and even decay in structures. Recent research and developments in the sensors of and the associated data analysis software of NDT tools have enhanced their usefulness. These NDT tools are effective in characterization of materials, detection of wear, assessment of interventions, and evaluation of compatible materials and processes.  Specific examples of an NDT tool include the Schmidt Hammer and Proceq Equotip, both used to assess rock hardness, and also ultrasound propagation velocity to test for the quality and degree of decay. ...
