Imaging a safer future - No 04 - October 2018
The IRF Global Road2Tunnel Conference & Expo is an event where research, development and investment intersect to build a worldwide network of civil engineers committed to advancing techniques in road infrastructure. The conference will be held from November 7th, 2018 to November 9th at the Tropicana Las Vegas Casino Hotel Resort. Topics discussed throughout the three days include autonomous vehicles, asset management, road safety and the future of public-private partnerships (PPP).
NEXCO-West USA will be in attendance at the conference. We encourage you to visit our booth to learn about our most recent advances in non-destructive testing (NDT) for bridge, road and tunnel inspection. Find us in Booth A44! To locate our booth, enter the exhibition hall and proceed along the wall to your left; we are on the fourth row and the second poster presentation you will see, adjacent to Highway Care from the UK. We will be presenting the state-of-the-art solutions that secure NEXCO-West USA's reputation as the global leader in NDT structural inspection technologies.
The use of line cameras in conjunction with IR cameras to detect water infiltration and efflorescence results in a dual imaging system that supplements and validates each other's datasets while also allowing for a greater level of analysis in non-destructive tunnel inspection. The placement of our cameras allows for a nearly 360-degree vision of the tunnel, ensuring that the greatest amount of information can be captured during a single scan. The compact nature of the design allows it to be transported, set up and taken down with relative ease.
Under current, conventional methods in tunnel inspection, it is neither efficient nor safe to manually survey an entire tunnel. Using NEXCO's tunnel scanning system valuable man-hours are saved and inspector safety is maximized
