The new building (2018)

Focus on a project

Crack patterns in paintings

F. Giorgiutti, L. Pauchard

Collaboration : M. Menu (C2RMF - musée du Louvre)

The large variety of craquelures reveal some characteristics of the pictorial layer. Moreover studying the stability of a crack network is essential in the domain of heritage conservation. The formation of a crack network is investigated using model systems in a multi-layered geometry.
