Ultrasonic Testing of Concrete

Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) is an effective non-destructive testing (NDT) method for quality control of concrete materials, and detecting damages in structural components. The UPV methods have traditionally been used for the quality control of materials, mostly homogeneous materials such as metals and welded connections. With the recent advancement in transducer technology, the test has been widely accepted in testing concrete materials. Ultrasonic testing of concrete is an effective way for… Read More »Ultrasonic Testing of Concrete

5 NDT Methods for Structural Evaluation

NDT methods can be used in routine inspection projects; they can be used to follow up the state of damages in periodical checks. The other advantage of NDT methods is that they can be performed by minimum intervention to the structure. This helps prevent aggravating the problems in already damaged structure. NDT methods can be used to assess the condition of elements that do not have easy access. One example… Read More »5 NDT Methods for Structural Evaluation
