New Method of Detecting Corroding Concrete Could Pinpoint Crumbling Infrastructure

Quote:
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are using a novel form of x-rays to detect corrosion, the primary danger threatening the health of the steel framework within the nation’s bridges, roads, and other aging physical infrastructure. This noninvasive “spectral fingerprint” technique reveals the corrosion of concrete-encased steel before it can cause any significant degradation of the structure it supports.
