The capabilities and advantages of laser scanners used for structural engineering applications to monitor and assess structural damage in laboratory tests and post-earthquake field survey are discussed. High definition laser scans have many advantages over conventional instrumentation as follows: (1) they capture three dimensional global deformations of… CONTINUE READING
