On-Site Evaluation of Concrete Strength

5 Methods for On-Site Evaluation of Concrete Strength

On-site Evaluation of Concrete Strength is a main challenge in the condition assessment of existing infrastructure, or the quality control of new construction. Owners, maintenance managers of such existing concrete structures normally prefer non-destructive and non-intrusive methods to avoid further damage to an already struggling structure. In construction projects, switching to non-destructive means less intervention, Read more about 5 Methods for On-Site Evaluation of Concrete Strength[…]

In this article, we will investigate the use of maturity method for in-place strength measurement. We will review the concept behind the maturity technique, and the most common practices. Later, we will describe the benefits and limitations of this method for in-place strength prediction. In the last part of this article, we will review and examine Read more about Maturity Method for In-Place Strength Measurement[…]

Structural Effects of Corrosion

Structural Effects of Corrosion

You may think that corrosion in structures is a just a durability-related issue in the first glance. Well, that is far from the truth. In fact, corrosion can directly affect mechanical and structural properties of components. Corrosion can affect the global response of the structure. In this article, we will review some of the main Read more about Structural Effects of Corrosion[…]
