Dimensional control based on 3D laser scanning techniques is widely used in practice. We describe the application of a hybrid 3D-2D laser scanning system to the characterization of slate slabs with structural defects that are difficult for the human eye to characterize objectively. Our study is based on automating the process using a 3D laser scanner and a(More)
A tool to predict the tensile properties of cork was applied in order to be used for material and application selection. The mechanical behaviour of cork under tensile stress was determined in the tangential and axial direction. Cork planks of two commercial quality classes were used and samples were taken at three radial positions in the planks.For the(More)
According to the laws in place in Spain, the autonomous Community of Galicia (NW Spain) has two zones –Lugo and Ourense– at greater seismic risk. In order to control and minimize the damage to buildings and to population, a Special Civil Protection Plan for Seismic Risk in Galicia (SISMIGAL) has been drawn up, including a software tool specially designed(More)
