CrackScan® Concrete and Bridge Crack Inspection Service
IPC’s concrete and bridge crack inspection system allows for the mapping of the length, width and position of cracks on concrete structures. X, Y and Z axis.
By monitoring the progression of the cracks in concrete, we can see the progression of deterioration in concrete and address areas of concern early. Making repairs to these areas of concern will result in prolonging the assets life, saving money and helping to protect the public safety.
IPC’s condition assessment reports offer a complete mapping of a concrete bridge, bridge deck or concrete structure. Year over year comparisons of bridge crack progression give a detailed 2D and 3D mapping of those cracks and progression over time to help manage repairs.

IPC’s Bridge Crack Measurement Service – CrackScan™ Inspects Bridge & Concrete Cracks
- * No lane closures required.
- * No traffic disruption or boom lifts.
- * No danger to personnel.
- * More efficient, less expensive & more accurate than current concrete crack inspection services.
- * Safer for the public & inspector.
- * One double blind study with a major engineering firm proved it to be over 1200 times more accurate than current methods.
- * Monitors crack progression over time.
Locating cracks early and monitoring crack progression will enable the asset manager to budget for repairs more efficiently and earlier in the assets life which will ultimately extend that assets life, saving millions of dollars in replacements as well as helping to keep the asset safe through its lifespan.
Bridge Crack Inspection System 3D & 2D Mapping
Concrete Cracks are measured utilizing an X, Y and Z axis, the position on the asset as well as the shape and width.
The saved information is translated through our proprietary software to produce a 2D or 3D mapping of the cracks.
Concrete Crack Testing & 3D Mapping
Types of Structures
Bridge and Concrete cracks are a reflection of the deterioration of concrete structures. Crack propagation leads to water intrusion and further corrosion of the rebar (steel bars) that reinforce the bridge as well as creating a shifting of the compacted gravel, creation of voids and the overall safety of the structure. By regular inspections using IPCs concrete crack inspection service, bridge inspections, concrete, steel and bridge inspections can:
- Locate micro cracking
- Monitor and track crack progression over time
- Create repair schedules with plenty of lead time
- Be conducted during the day with no lane closures, traffic disruption or the need to rent expensive equipment or boom trucks
With IPC’s CrackScan™ (Concrete Crack Inspection Service) the asset manager can help the asset owner save money on inspections with a higher degree of accuracy, increase the health and life expectancy of the asset and help ensure the public’s safety.
