Dear Sir or Madam,
My name is Manon Léchenne and I am currently in my last year of study
at the University of Applied Sciences in Bern (BUA). I approach you because
I am looking for information about the consolidation of wood in the context
of my Master’s thesis. This work is part of a planed research project at the
BUA (lead K. Soppa) on the topic “wood consolidation”.
This survey is intended to deliver a general idea of the current consolidation
practice applied to wooden heritage artwork. We also intend to extract current
difficulties, as well as materials and techniques with the greatest potential to
start research on the improvement of the homogeneous applicability and penetrative
properties of consolidating techniques to save woodworm infested objects.
We would be grateful for any information or personal views on this subject.
Please do not hesitate to ask for more details on the work in progress and
we are happy for any discussion on this topic.
This survey is of multiple-choice type and takes about 30 minutes to be filled out.
For the few development questions we would be grateful if you could use English, French or German.
With kind regards
