Asking information about optical application in Civil engineering

Dear colleagues:

I would want to ask you some questions can help me to
find answers related to my PhD thesis. The main
subject of my thesis is to prove possibilities of
speckle interferometry technique as a non-destructive
method to measure the displacement field in structural
element such as shearwalls and building model. For
this purpose I need to know if have you seen the
modeling of structural elements such as shearwalls by
optical techniques.

I also used an electronic speckle pattern
interferometry to measure dynamic Young modulus in
cementitious materials. In this experiment
interferometry technique was combined with
longitudinal resonance method to measure resonance
frequency by using the quantities of fringe that
appear over the specimen. Have American Concrete
Institute reported the Young modulus measurements by
optical techniques, for example: holographic technique
and speckle interferometry technique? Could you
comment the most important advantages and drawbacks
that the ultrasonic method has when is used to measure
the elastic modulus?

I will appreciate any opinion you can suggest me

Best regards

Prof. Rolando Gonzalez-Peña

Together with a comprehensive set of software modules these flexible series of systems provide the customer with the best price performance solutions.


TSC Amigo2 - ACFM technology has developed a solid reputation for accurately detecting and sizing
surface-breaking cracks through paint and coatings. As the industry demands increased performance in speed, signal quality, and portability, it’s time for an evolution. It’s time for Amigo2.

FD800 Bench Top Flaw Detectors

The bench-top FD800 flaw detector range combines state-of-the-art flaw detection with advanced mater
ial thickness capabilities. Designed for use in the laboratory these gauges are the tool you need for all your flaw detecting needs.

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 64-channel phased
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.
