Abstract

For structural monitoring applications, the use of remotely deployable Non Destructive Evaluation (NDE) inspection platforms, offer many advantages when compared to traditional techniques in respect of accessibility, safety and financial outlay. The use of such platforms, previously reported by researchers at Strathclyde University, allows rapid inspection of large areas and volumes, ensuring structures are safe and operable to modern requirements.
