AbstractThe paper describes the research activities conducted on the 13 th century Rognosa tower in San Gimignano (Siena, Italy), the historic town inscribed on the Unesco World Heritage List in 1990. A structural nonlinear analysis of the tower has been performed via the freeware finite element code NOSA. The finite element mesh of the tower has been generated using a three-dimensional digital model of the tower and the surrounding buildings. The geometry data has been acquired by means of a time-of-flight l…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
