Professor Debra Laefer from NYU’s Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) [and associate professor of civil and urban engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering], in collaboration with Professor Aoife Gowen and Zohreh Zahiri from the University College Dublin, recently demonstrated for the first time the ability to use hyperspectral imaging to characterize differing strengths within a single type of construction material. With proper post-processing of the data, hyperspectral imaging can automatically and reliably detect weak from strong hardened concrete and normally fired bricks.
