A NEW LEVEL OF ACCURACY FOR GEOMETRY INSPECTIONS

Atlas UG robots reliably perform precise, direct measurement of dents with depth resolution down to 0.1 mm. The increased number of sensors and overlap, along with state-of-the-art data acquisition systems, deliver higher spatial resolution that can be exploited in the computation of assessment methodologies such as the PRCI dent fatigue life assessment or finite element modeling that require specific and rigorous geometric data input.

This paper discusses the advantages and reliability of ultrasonic technology for geometry measurement. It demonstrates the (a) detection, identification and sizing capabilities and (b) geometric mapping capabilities for 3D assessment methodologies. The data and results presented are compared to conventional caliper tools and in-the-ditch readings.
