Non-destructive Evaluation of Concrete Foundation
Portlands Energy Centre | Toronto, ON
Cracking and delamination was observed on the concrete foundation of a gas turbine generator, during the routine inspection. The concrete structure sits over a mat concrete foundation and supports the generator.
FPrimeC Solutions was engaged by Portlands Energy Centre to perform non-destructive evaluation of concrete. The evaluation involved using Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV), and Rebound Hammer, and Half-Cell potential in order to study the condition of concrete foundation.
Non-destructive Evaluation of Concrete Strength in Deck Slab
OPG Darlington Nuclear | Bowmanville, ON
The main objective of the assignment was to conduct non-destructive tests on a concrete slab to evaluate the compressive strength on-site. The structure under construction was located at the Ontario Power Generation (OPG), Darlington Nuclear site.
FPrimeC Solutions was engaged by SNC-Lavalin Nuclear and Aecon Industrial - Central Canadato perform non-destructive evaluation of concrete. The evaluation involved using Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV), and Rebound Hammer in order to identify potential weak points, and predict the compressive strength of concrete over 400 square meter slab.
Nondestructive Evaluation of Trunk Sewer
Andrews Engineer | Ottawa, ON
Non-destructive testing of concrete to verify the quality of concrete in Trunk Sewer at the Ottawa-West Nepean Collector (City of Ottawa). The main goal of the project was to assess the quality of concrete in the trunk sewer, and evaluate the thickness of concrete lining in 400 long trunk sewer.
FPrimeC Solutions was engaged by Andrews Engineer to perform non-destructive evaluation of concrete. Based on the existing condition of the trunk sewer, and after review of the exposure, FPrimeC proposed the use of Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV), Ultrasonic Pulse Echo (UPE), and Surface Electrical Resistivity (ER) to evaluate the quality along the trunk sewer. The test plan was designed such that the test equipment could be easily mobilized in the confined space. Test locations were identified and the test surface was prepared.
