Topic: Non-Destructive Testing/Evaluation of Concrete and Masonry Structures
Non-Destructive Testing/Evaluation involves the use of multiple technologies and methodologies. The right application is essential to provide engineers with valuable information to make informed decisions with regards to evaluating modification, retrofit, construction errors, damage, & deterioration in concrete and masonry structures. While technology can be great, using well thought out methods of applying the technologies is the key to providing information of value. This presentation will show practical case study examples of various applications. Most engineers and contractors will surely recall a project where the techniques and results shown could have solved problems. The technologies presented include: Electromagnetic methods, Sonic/Ultrasonic Methods, Electrical methods, Visual, and in-situ Strength Testing.
