Monitoring Transportation Structure Integrity Loss and Risk with Structure-From-Motion

A hybrid method of analysis using Structure-from-Motion photographic imaging and finite element models are proposed to monitor and characterize physical changes in transportation systems using standard digital photographs. The proposed methodology is suggested to study a wide variety of representative structures and systems that can be damaged or subjected to varying environmental threats.
