Abstract

This paper presents a novel method for presenting the concrete bridge deck condition assessed by multiple nondestructive evaluation (NDE) technologies using a three-dimensional visualization program, NDEFuse. Six types of NDE data can be visualized: (1) impact-echo data for mapping and describing the depth and severity level of concrete delamination, (2) ultrasonic surface wave data for concrete quality (elastic modulus) assessment, (3) electrical resistivity for the description of corrosive environment and estimate of the corrosion rate of steel reinforcement, (4) mapping of top rebar layer and (5) ground penetrating radar condition assessment data, and (6) high-resolution deck surface image for documenting signs of deterioration, previous repairs, and surface wear. The 3D visualization platform integrates and visualizes the six NDE results in a very intuitive way. Correlations between the different types of NDE survey results were established visually in a 3D space utilizing the developed program.
