Abstract: This proceedings includes the papers submitted to the Second International Conference on Imaging Technologies: Techniques and Applications in Civil Engineering sponsored by the Engineering Foundation and the American Society of Civil Engineers. The conference was held at the Cresta Sun Hotel in Davos, Switzerland from May 25-30, 1997. The conference was organized by the imaging Technologies of the Technical Council on Computer Practices of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The intent of the conference was to provide an opportunity to continue the technical interaction initiated during the initial conference held in Hawaii in March 1993, the proceedings of which were previously published by ASCE. The Davos meeting agenda included significant opportunities for ad-hoc discussion among the participants as well as more structured sessions with presentations of the technical papers submitted by participants in topics ranging from material characterization, deformation measurements, pavement distress, infrastructure maintenance, object recognition, particle sizing and image generation. This document is intended to provide the civil engineer with a comprehensive and up-to-date perspective of the use of imaging technologies for solving civil engineering problems.
