The overall aim of this project is to reduce the amount of time taken to analyse images of tower steelwork, improve the quality of the assessment and avoid overly conservative interpretations using an automated process of steelwork imaging analysis.

The research objective is to compare quantrify the accruacy and time required between the current process using visible light images and manual assessment with the new method using infra-red spectroscopy and automated image processing.
