Thermographic Inspection Technologies Pooled Fund Study - Phase II
Record Type: RiP
This project is a Missouri led Pooled Fund. The initial pooled fund research project for Thermography Technologies developed methodologies and procedures to utilize infrared (IR) cameras under field conditions. A combination of field testing by participating State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and a laboratory study was conducted. Guidelines were developed for state practitioners to follow when using the Thermographic Imaging for inspection of bridges. This project represents Phase II which will provide for implementation guidance within the participating states. The objective of this research is to validate and improve upon the guidelines developed during phase I. Each state will receive a camera and training so they can utilize the technology as part of their inspection process. The states will then provide the images and results to the researchers in comparison with traditional methods of inspection.
