BRIDGE DECK DELAMINATION DETECTION AND MAPPING WITH INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY

Research has shown that infrared thermography has significant advantages over traditional techniques in detecting bridge deck delaminations. The thermographic technique uses an infrared camera to locate and map bridge deck delaminations, characterizing each by size and shape. This article discusses infrared thermography, addresses its limitations, and highlights the Infrared Bridge Inspection System. The quantitative infrared bridge inspection programs described here require in-depth analytical capabilities afforded by an image processing/data management system.
