Abstract

This paper presents the economic concept of describing damage in concrete by a partially linear planar system. The practical cases are elaborated of prevailing compressive or tensile stresses. They only require quantitatively analyzing the image patterns of vertical sections by sweeping test lines. Further it is demonstrated that automation of quantitative image analysis generally yields biased information. Keywords: concrete, image analysis, automation, sweeping test line, vertical section.
