The EELISA activity ‘Science & Tech for Heritage’ has been recently developed in the frame of SSERIES community and the results have been presented in an International Congress about Heritage and Civil Engineering celebrated in Cuenca, Toledo and Madrid (Spain).

The activity consisted of:

– Bibliographic study of the historical sources on the Roman road network in the area of the bridge over the Bibei river.

– Travel to the study site to carry out a photographic flight with a drone.

– Obtaining a reality grid of the bridge and its surroundings.

– Study of the three-dimensional model to locate historical restorations as well as the connection of the Roman road of the “Codos de Larouco” with the bridge.

With this kind of activity, Civil Engineering students can get started in the field of digital twins from field work to office work and engage personally with the heritage conservation.

This activity was conducted by Antonio Arcos, director of the geomorfology department at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid.
