Aerial Infrared Scanning of Bridge Decks for Detecting and Mapping Delamination

This research is to evaluate the condition of Alaska DOT bridge decks located along the Parks Highway. The deck condition evaluations will be carried out using aerial infrared thermography (aerial IF) and corresponding visual imaging data collected from a fixed wing aircraft. Work will include the following deliverables: a final report including a description of the equipment, the data collection and analysis procedures, results of analysis, detailed comparison of aerial IR versus ground-truth data, ROI analysis, and recommendations for future implementation based on the results.
