Applications of Non-Contact Measurements in Steel Structures [N65A]

Translation of engineering from 2D line drawings to 3D objects is occurring at an ever-increasing pace. Today, non-contact measurement methods--lasers, photogrammetry, and other methods--have the potential to not only help engineers create 3D models of buildings but also to populate those models with useful information about the current state of a building structure in terms of exact dimensions, damage, etc. Recent research projects using cameras and lasers in the field and in the laboratory will be shared in this session, demonstrating the potential of these technologies and how they are already being used to advance our capabilities and knowledge in structural engineering.
