FPrimeC Solutions Inc. has been engaged to estimate concrete crack depth on a bridge soffit in the GTA. The main objective of the project was to evaluate the depth of surface openings in a severely cracked concrete soffit. Several measurements were performed to evaluate the depth profile of the cracks along their existing length.
More than 70 individual cracks were identified over the soffit. Cracks were 0.3 mm and wider. A review of core samples, and core holes showed that the cracks have well penetrated through the thickness of the concrete slab. FPrimeC used a non-destructive test method to estimate crack depth at select locations along the length of each crack. These readings would enable engineers in further evaluating the severity of these defects, and identify the best materials for crack injection. Learn more here
