NWO Veni Award : Engineering goes Beauty - A computational multi-physics modelling approach towards the preservation of historical oil paintings

Prize: NWOVeniScientific


Degradation of historical oil paintings is a major issue for cultural heritage conservators. My goal is to propose a computational multi-physics approach to predict chemo-mechanical damage phenomena in oil paintings, and to translate the improved understanding into guidelines for conservation experts. This will ensure timely and effective preservation treatments.
