Abstract
Geophysical prospecting surveys are being increasingly used in non-destructive evaluations of structures, and several methods can be applied in the evaluation of cultural heritage buildings. However, accurate studies of cultural heritage structures usually need the application of combined techniques, historic and structural knowledge also being necessary. The present paper describes the pplication of two nondestructive testing techniques: ground-penetrating radar and seismic tomography, in the a...
