Precautions for Cold Weather Concreting

  • by

Extreme cold weather conditions can significantly affect the quality of concrete, as well as its mechanical properties. In cold weather concreting, one should make sure that all the negative impacts of low ambient temperature are appropriately alleviated by taking the necessary precautions. In this article, we will review important steps that can ensure you will get the quality you are looking for. But first, let’s see what cold temperature is… Read More »Precautions for Cold Weather Concreting

Non-Destructive Testing of Wind Turbine Foundation

Non-Destructive Testing of Wind Turbine Foundation

  • by

Harvesting wind energy has been of special interest over the past decade. There are approximately 300 wind farms across Canada.  Wind turbine structures are very complex. While the inspection of the turbine and tower has been very well developed, the literature on evaluating the quality, integrity and reliability of their foundation is relatively limited. In this article, we will review how Non-Destructive Testing of Wind Turbine Foundation can help engineers in… Read More »Non-Destructive Testing of Wind Turbine Foundation
