Abstract: The architectural preservation process is generally based on a sequence of anamnesis and analysis, diagnosis, therapy, control and prognosis. The importance of structural monitoring within this process is generally accepted. Ongoing research at the Building Materials and Building Technology Division of the Civil Engineering Department in collaboration with the RLICC of K.U.Leuven focuses on different non-destructive monitoring techniques and their value within the preventive conservation of the historic building. Based on fundamental and applied research, several of the techniques have matured and been applied within real case studies. Focus is on how these structural monitoring techniques are a tool to help in the structural understanding of often complex historical buildings. The applications on real case studies evidence their applicability and are illustrated within this contribution
