Abstract

Close range digital photogrammetry for the measurement of erosion to historic adobe structures R.A. Hurt & P. Woods Department of Construction Science Texas A&M University, USA Abstract Unbaked earth structures, like adobe structures are found in abundance throughout the world. Like most structures, they are subject to deterioration through time. The preservation of historic adobe structures requires careful attention and evaluation of several factors, but material erosion is the main concern. In order to calculate the amount of erosion, accurate measurement of the structures is required. Any measurement method used to quantify erosion needs a level of accuracy to detect the small changes in the surface of the structures. Digital photogrammetry is the measurement of objects by digital image analysis using specialized software packages. Historic preservationists and architects use digital photogrammetry to measure historic structures. The accuracy o
