Capturing knowledge about damages and failures of culture heritage objects is a complex task because of term ambiguity, knowledge incompleteness and variety. To tackle this complexity, the paper introduces a semantic web ontology that aims at modeling monument damage knowledge with significant contextual information, including monument identification, damage identification, risk assessment, damage diagnosis and remedial measures. The developed ontology is being tested in the MONDIS project as a background knowledge for custom software tools for management of damage failure knowledge. During the course of the project it becomes a common model for linked-data-compliant knowledge-based system serving different stakeholders to model/retrieve/compare different cases of damage and successful interventions.
