Description/Abstract

The findings of a year long programme carried out by a multidisciplinary engineering/conservation team are described. A mass produced textile material that can be used to represent tapestries is identified and mechanical test are detailed that demonstrate it behaves as a tapestry. The feasibility of using optical fibre sensors, full-field optical strain measurement techniques and thermography for monitoring tapestry degradation is assessed. The results of preliminary findings are presented and a rational is developed for in-situ quantitative strain monitoring of tapestries.
