This paper is aimed at presenting a numerical study on the reconstruction accuracy (quantitative imaging) of the integrated genetic algorithm (GA)-based multicrack strategy, thus completing the assessment previously carried out and limited to verify the accuracy of the qualitative imaging (i.e., crack detection, location, and size estimation). The obtained results prove an acceptable reliability and accuracy of the GA-based integrated strategy also in reconstructing multiple defective regions
