NDT&E International of civil structures and materials towards practical assessment of roads and bridges
Laser scanning #1, Capacitive probing #2, Digital imaging #3, Stress waves #4 #5, Ultrasonics #6, Ground penetrating Radar #7 #8, Microwave interferometry #9
NDT/NDE applications are becoming important parts of quality control and condition assessment in areas such as aerospace industry, energy and power generation, petrochemical industry, and metal production. Structural integrity is of great importance for maintaining the safety, reliability, and availability of roads, bridges, tunnels, and other civil structures. Many NDT techniques first introduced in the 1980s have been revised so as to meet the challenges faced by civil engineers in light of aging and deteriorating infrastructures. The latest trend in the civil NDT methods also focuses on technology that can be applied to large inspection regions where non-contact or remote inspection may be required.
1. "Validation of mobile LiDAR surveying for measuring pavement layer thicknesses and volumes",
2. "Electromagnetic characterization of grouting materials of bridge post tensioned ducts for NDT using capacitive probe",
3. "Dynamic characteristics of suspension bridge hanger cables using digital image processing",
4. "Experimental study for the evaluation of stress wave approaches on a group pile foundation",
5 "An automatic impact-based delamination detection system for concrete bridge decks",
6. "Monitoring and evaluation of self-healing in concrete using diffuse ultrasound",
7. "Ground penetrating radar imaging of water leaks from buried pipes based on back-projection method",
8. "Development and validation for in situ asphalt mixture density prediction models",
9. "Deflection measurement on vibrating stay cables by non-contact microwave interferometer",
The quest will never end for searching effective NDT/NDE techniques for assessing the structure integrity of civil infrastructures. Sharing existing knowledge on NDT/NDE techniques and applications would almost certainly help engineering professionals better prepared for whatever challenges come next. It is hoped that comments and discussions coming from the readers regarding the selected articles will further stimulate the public awareness of the role of NDT/NDE.
