VIDEOIMAGERY TECHNIQUES AND MULTIVARIATED PARAMETER ANALYSIS TO DEFINE 3D MAPS OF VULNERABILITY

Rebeca Gomez, Rafael Molina, Carmen Castillo

Abstract


The present methodological proposal allows the generation of three-dimensional maps of vulnerability for breakwaters, through the employment of videoimagery techniques and statistical analysis.

On one hand, the knowledge of videoimagery techniques (Molina et al., 2005) as an extended and applicable tool for maritime engineering (ZEUS Project “Zenital Unattended System”) and on the other hand the usefulness of applying statistical techniques to the study of damage evolution in maritime structures motivated the fusion of both to obtain wide information from the images which is not evident to the naked eye.

The 3D maps show graphically the behaviour of breakwaters facing the actions of the environment, and this makes the tasks of conservation, maintenance or design easy and improve damage prediction for a better management during the building process.
