Computational Reverse Engineering: Archaeological Artifact Mathematical Modeling (CREAAMM)
Keywords: Computational Archaeology, Mathematical Modeling, photogrammetry and projective geometry, 3D data acquisition, Media Anthropology
CREAAMM is an acronym for a novel research protocol we are currently developing with an interdisciplinary approach using investigative laboratory applications including but not limited to visual and technical analytical data, X-ray computed tomography, photogrammetry, and 3D data acquisition. The prime goal of developing the above protocol for the present project is to produce formal qualitative and quantitative data for objective technical, structural and volumetric analyses and high-precision, detailed comparisons for the reverse engineering (RE) of the materials under consideration for the above program and its current project (COC Program, Phase I, 1.0), and by extension, for RE of the archaeological and historical artifacts within the fields of Archaeology, Conservation, Materials Research Conservation Science, and Heritage Studies.
