Towards in-situ monitoring of tapestry degradation using strain-based engineering techniques

Welcome to the Tapestry Monitoring Research Project, carried out by the Textile Conservation Centre and the School of Engineering Sciences at the University of Southampton between 2007 - 2010

Learn more about this project

This project set out to enhance the long-term preservation of tapestries by developing well-established engineering techniques to monitor the strain behavior of tapestries, simply and unobtrusively, in situ. The project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and carried out in both laboratory and on-site environments.
