Geostatistical Analysis of PSI Radar Data: A Methodology to Assess Serviceable Limit State of Buildings
A new methodology to assess serviceability limit state of buildings is presented. It is based on the geostatistical analysis of advanced radar interferometry (PSI) results. This methodology has been tested in the historical buildings of Orihuela City (SE Spain), damaged during the last two decades due to ground subsidence caused by aquifer overexploitation. Results demonstrate that the proposed PSI post-processing methodology can be a cost effective tool to rapidly identify potential problematic buildings and infrastructures in urban areas where forensic analysis should be made.
