Practical In Situ Applications of DIC for Large Structures

Abstract:

Article Preview

The paper describes recent use of Digital Image Correlation (DIC) for in-situ measurements of deformation and cracking of large civil engineering structures like bridges and power plant. Recent work at NPL has demonstrated the potential of DIC as a novel NDT tool for measuring deformation and cracking in reinforced concrete structures. This has particular application where the area of interest is in a region where inspection is difficult or costly and where direct access may have safety implications. In this case accurate measurements from pairs of images can be very cost effective.
