Argumented reality for structural cracking @ University of Texas (6-8 months fellowship)

The objective of this research program is to design, implement and validate an advanced vision-based assessment technology for the nondestructive evaluation of reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Overall it is proposed to use augmented reality, and advanced data processing techniques for automatically detecting, evaluating and monitoring crack propagation in RC elements. The research team will leverage the data from one current project sponsored by the Texas Department of Transportation. This data includes, but is not limited to digital images taken during the testing of standard Texas RC bridge girders. Testing is being done to examine damage development (i.e., crack patterns and widths) at prestress release and the load resisting performance of the girders under shear-critical loading scenarios. On the basis of the results obtained, the research team will refine the algorithms such that their performance is optimized.
