Immersive Visualization for Assessing Civil Structures

  • Virtual reality (VR)/augmented reality (AR)-based system for analyzing structures
  • Provides damage detection and load-carrying information about a structure
  • Minimizes or eliminates the need for structural health monitoring (SHM) experts to conduct onsite visits

Abstract
The University of Central Florida invention is related to a novel method and technology to aid structural health monitoring (SHM) experts and civil structure inspectors. The method uses the analyzed structure incorporated with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) platforms to minimize or eliminate the need for site visits. The invention can enable a more efficient decision-making process with damage detection and load carrying information.
