In recent years, nondestructive testing of civil engineering structures has become increasingly important. Non-destructive inspection methods for civil engineering structures generally use ultrasonic waves. However, the inspection of civil engineering structures takes much time because of the extensive scope of the inspection. Moreover, in the field of nondestructive testing, there are also concerns about a future shortage of inspectors. Therefore, this study proposes a laser ultrasonic visualization testing using AI. The proposed method will be applied to a concrete structure with surface defects to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method.
