The MAC system (Mecanique d'Auscultation des Conduites, i.e., buried pipelines mechanical inspection) is an integrated mechanical-electronic system that inspects different kinds of pipes (reinforced concrete, plain concrete, masonry, and clay) from 0.7 to 4.0 m in diameter. The system assesses the reliability of the pipe by analyzing the pipe-soil interactive structural behavior.
