Ultrasonic Scanning

FPrimeC Solutions provides advanced ultrasonic testing solutions to scan existing surface defects (crack depth), and pinpoint sub-surface defects and anomalies.

  • Crack Depth Measurement
    • Evaluate depth and width of surface cracks
    • Quantitative analysis of extent of concrete cracking and damage index
    • Quality Control/Quality Assurance of Cold Joints
  • Detect Sub-Surface Voids and Defects
    • identify location of major voids
    • identify extent of Honeycombing
    • identify homogeneity and consistency issues

Impact-Echo and Impulse-Response Scanning

Impulse-Response Methods (Transient Method) and Impact-Echo provide a great too for scanning concrete elements in dams, and spillways. 

Impact echo is a great method to identify the depth and location of delamination in concrete slabs, and spillways.

Impulse-Response method is used to locate voids and defects underneath the concrete slabs.
