Cracking is a common observation in existing concrete structures. Different structural and environmental loading can cause cracking in concrete. Cracking can be a sign of distress, and can significantly affect concrete durability performance. FPrimeC offers a wide range of NDT methods for detecting and quantifying cracking in concrete.
+ Detect and quantify subsurface cracks and deficiencies
+ Crack depth measurement
+ Overall concrete quality assessment
+ Predicting structural properties of cracked concrete
Corrosion of Steel Rebar
Our Novel approach in detecting and quantifying corrosion is unique. Whether you want to find the chance of active corrosion in a parking garage, or predict the service life of an existing bridge structure, our NDT lab will offer you the best solutions for decision making. We utilize a totally non-intrusive approach to detect and predict the rate of steel corrosion.
+ Half-Cell Corrosion Potential Mapping
+ Non-intrusive Corrosion Rate Measurement
+ Predicting the Concrete Resistance to Chloride Ion Penetration (Electrical Resistivity)
Delamintaion is a form or discontinuity in surface of concrete. Delaminated area might be invisible from the surface of concrete; Traditional methods for identifying delaminated area consisted of detecting hollow sound by tapping or chain dragging. FPrimeC Solutions offer NDT alternatives which are faster and more reliable. This includes application of GPR, Ultrasonic methods, and infrared thermography.
+ Detecting location and extent of delamination
Surface defects might be a results of poor quality material, poor workmanship or environmental loading. Segregation, cold joints, and honeycombing are commonly observed in concrete structures. Our NDT lab can be used to identify and quantify these defects.
+ Detect the location of honeycombing;
+ Predict the mechanical properties of damaged concrete;
+ Evaluate the durability properties of damaged concrete.
