Borescope for Bridges

Steel and concrete structures are subject to corrosion and fatigue. Specialists can use industrial video scopes  or video borescopes to inspect inside voids, cavities and other hard-to-reach areas to determine the condition of a bridge.
Borescope inspection of bridges—a videoscope or Video borescope is typically used to evaluate the condition of areas difficult to access for visual inspection. These tools can transmit images from a video scope camera attached to the tip of a thin flexible tube that can be as long as 30 meters. 
Common applications in bridge evaluation include bearing inspection and tendon inspection. Remote visual inspection access can be through existing holes or cracks or small holes drilled into the structure.
