Size and Shape Determination of the Rip Rap and Large Sized Aggregates Using Field Imaging

The objective of this research project is to develop a convenient non-intrusive field evaluation system based on imaging, whereby an engineer or inspector can take multiple photos of the rip rap and large-sized aggregates for the gradation (size distribution) and shape property determinations simply with a field imaging and evaluation kit. The stockpile field images are processed and analyzed real time for size and shape properties based on the collected data using the user-independent image analysis software. Therefore, this system is intended to be portable, affordable, and ideal for data compilation.
