This document aims to offer a detailed description of the surveying technologies considered within this project for condition survey of transport infrastructure, more specifically bridges and tunnels. The document will be divided into three main sections:
- Surveying technologies, being classified as destructive or non-destructive as the most general classification
- Data analysis methods, studying the most common ones for the selection of surveying technologies made
- Fitness-for-purpose, as the strategy to follow when deciding which surveying technology should be used for each specific case study
From the information gathered in this document, an online interactive catalogue containing the main characteristics for each surveying technology was created.
Chapter 2 explains the IM-SAFE project context and includes a brief explanation of the needs for research and standardization in Europe, together with a description of the methods and the approach pursued in this report.
