Abstract. In present work it is pretended to estimate elastic parameters of beams through the combined use of precision geomatic techniques (laser scanning) and structural behaviour simulation tools. The study has two aims, on the one hand, to develop an algorithm able to interpret automatically point clouds acquired by laser scanning systems of beams subjected to different load situations on experimental tests; and on the other hand, to minimize differences between deformation values given by simulation tools and those measured by laser scanning. In this way we will proceed to identify elastic parameters and boundary conditions of structural element so that surface stresses can be estimated more easily.
