A new methodology for digital image processing, namely the Motion Magnification (MM), allows to magnify small displacements of large structures. MM acts like a microscope for motion in video sequences, but affecting only some groups of pixels. The processed videos unveil motions hardly visible with the naked eye and allow a more effective frequency domain analysis. We applied the MM method to several historic structures, including a 1:10-scale mockup of Hagia Irene in Constantinople tested on shaking table, the so-called Temple of Minerva Medica in Rome and the Ponte delle Torri of Spoleto. MM algorithms parameters were calibrated by comparison with reference consolidated modal identification methods applied to conventional velocimeters data. Encouraging results were obtained in terms of vibration monitoring and modal analysis for dynamic identification of the studied structures, offering a low-cost, viable support to the standard vibration sensing equipment, such as contact velocimeters, laser vibrometers and others. © 2018
