Heritage-BIM approach for Historical Urban Pavements: the case study of Via Duomo in Naples

The growing necessity to recover and digitally represent heritage infrastructure, has led the experts to face the challenge of choosing different Building Information Modeling (BIM) platforms that will be used to manage the implementation of the semi-automatic design and the reconstruction processes of reverse engineering modelling. The approach to the integrated management of information derived through Heritage-BIM (H-BIM) has been applied to Via del Duomo, one of the main roads in the old town of Naples, Italy. During preliminary inspections of the construction site, it was possible to acquire geometric features and stratigraphic information as well as conducting a photographic survey. Subsequently, the acquired data were processed to obtain a mesh using Dynamo as BIM-based tool. Then, a library, with the inclusion of all the possible stone paving package alternatives, was created in order to design an algorithm able to select the optimal solution in the listed library depending on the context, including all the structural and stress-deforming characteristics . The research has considerable potential in the field of facility management for the enhancement of the existing building and infrastructural heritage.
