wrought iron inspection

Dear all;
In Australia, we have numerous wrought iron rail bridges that are +100yrs old.
Some of these bridges have a couple of issues with corrosion of the original material post modification.
The configuration in question is a sandwich of 2 x 18mm mild steel outer, added with 1 x 6mm original wrought iron inner.
For further reference, the inner is a I beam web and the outers are web stiffeners that were added to provide additonal strength to the member.
Other than RT, what portable alternative methods / new technologies are available for the detection of gross corrosion / wall loss (>25%) of the inner web in a timely manner??????
Note, access is not a problem and survey of outer web stiffeners is also not a problem.

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
