STRUCINSPECT offers a number of advantages in practice. The way in which data is collected and analyzed saves both time and money while minimizing site constraints.
Now, very labour-intensive and time-consuming structural inspections can be significantly simplified and shortened with STRUCINSPECT. Both the collection of the inventory data and the AI-generated evaluation of the results can be achieved in a very short time compared to conventional methods. This advantage pays off especially where quick decisions are required, e.g. after damage caused by forces of nature.
A particular advantage of the data collection methods e.g. using drones, and the subsequent location-independent data analysis of the digital twin, is that disruptions or even on-site work-stops are reduced to a minimum. Instead of blocking the entire inspection site or individual lanes as previously, our acquisition method hardly affects daily business at all.
Indirect additional costs, which so far have been caused by such restrictions, are therefore completely eliminated. In addition, the high availability of the infrastructure during the inspection work is guaranteed. The streamlined and faster processes of STRUCINSPECT therefore guarantee clearly measurable financial benefits!
The digital results and evaluations can also be used for other future applications. The reproducible quality of the data sets enables objectified comparisons with previous state judgments - e.g. for long-term observations, life-cycle analyses and the preparation and planning of concrete conservation measures in the future.
