Abstract

Aged large concrete structure, such as highways, bridges and boating docks, need to be inspected by undestructive method in order to determine whether maintenance or rebuild. If maintenance work is appropriate, diagnosis will be needed. We have been developing un-destructive inspection system by using fast neutron which can penetrate thick concrete. Fast neutron detector is developed with plastic scintillator and semiconductor photon sensors. It can identify 16mmφ steel rod through 300mm thick concrete. After prototyping detector experiments, new large area detector are designed and build.
