4 NDT Methods for Concrete Imaging and Scanning

Concrete imaging and scanning has been an interesting topic for many materials and structural engineers, inspectors, as well as the owners. It helps identify and quantify sub-surface defects more efficiently, and comprehend the extent of damages. Different non-destructive testing methods have been developed for concrete imaging and scanning. In this article, we will review some Read more about 4 NDT Methods for Concrete Imaging and Scanning[…]

Condition Survey for Bridge Decks

4 Methods of Condition Survey for Bridge Decks

Exposed Concrete Decks suffer from various deterioration mechanisms; i.e. freezing and thawing, corrosion. The most significant consequence is the delamination of concrete, which could eventually trigger other damage mechanism, such as corrosion. The maintenance of deck slabs is quite challenging mainly because it normally involves large areas; In many cases, closing the deck to traffic Read more about 4 Methods of Condition Survey for Bridge Decks[…]

How to Use GPR for Evaluation of Concrete Piles

How to Use GPR for Evaluation of Concrete Piles

Detection and evaluation of unknown foundations of old construction, particularly buried piles can be a big challenge, because: * No structural drawing is available. * The access to the piles is difficult, if not impossible. * The traffic or operation of (or over) the superstructure can not be interrupted. Certain non-destructive methods have been developed over years Read more about How to Use GPR for Evaluation of Concrete Piles[…]
