Abstract. The paper presents the results of an experimental research activity aimed to individuate digital tools for an intelligent mapping of structural and material decay of historical buildings.
The activities carried out are part of the context of Scan-to-BIM processes, as they establish a workflow that, starting from 3D survey data, leads to an information model enriched by information related to the conservation state of surfaces and to the structural characteristics of the real building. The experimentation has been performed with the support of a software house, looking forward to turning this workflow into an actual implementation on a BIM software. In this regard, this research becomes part of the context of the studies concerned in the digital management processes of the historical built heritage, setting and testing specific parametrical objects that add to H-BIM models the possibility of documenting and sharing graphical, numerical and descriptive data of decay phenomena and, through integrative information sheets, damage phenomena.
