Crack detection in CT images of concrete specimen
Non-destructive testing (NDT) method such as computer tomography (CT) are more and more used as imaging techniques to analyze the inner structure and to detect flaws in concrete specimen. In this project algorithms have been developed to find cracks automatically in CT images of concrete. The goal is to quantify damage processes in cementious material in space and time. Three different crack detection methods have been evaluated. The statistical evaluation of detected cracks and the tracking of single cracks over several frost-thaw cycles are future project goals. Further information is available on the detailed project description.
