Crack Assessment in Concrete Using Digital Image Processing: A Review

Satnam Singh, Gurpreet Kaur, Mandeep Kaur


The health of civil structures is assessed continuously to avoid any kind of cracking in concrete that may lead to its sudden failure and not to mention, this kind of unfortunate situation is hazardous to all the civilians living in or around it. Thus, structural health monitoring becomes a vital process in structural engineering. The conventional practice of structural monitoring involves visual inspection of concrete structures by an inspector at the target site, which is very time consuming and prone to human errors. In recent years, the advancement in technology has introduced new ways of automating the process of structural monitoring and one such method is ‘Image Analysis’. Hence, this paper reviews various studies that propose the crack assessment in concrete using Digital Image Processing along with the major challenges and issues observed so far.
