Ultrasonic Concrete Testing Ultrasonic Concrete Testing This category comprises the range of instruments that use sound or stress waves in order to determine the properties of concrete and other materials non-destructively. The first and most widely used System is our V-Meter, which utilizes the ultrasonic pulse velocity method for evaluating.
This method uses data from ultrasonic probes lowered into parallel access ducts, or in a single access duct, in the deep foundation element to assess the homogeneity and integrity of concrete between the probes. The data are used to confirm adequate concrete quality or identify zones of poor quality. If defects are detected, then further investigations should be made by excavation or. The accepted methods for testing concrete are not favorable for determining its heterogeneity. The interpretation of the compressive strength result as a product of destructive force and cross-section area is burdened with significant understatements. It is assumed erroneously that this is the lowest value of strength at the height of the tested sample. The top layer of concrete floors often.
In concrete, one issue with CWI and ultrasonic methods in general is the high attenuation of high-frequency waves, caused by both scattering and intrinsic absorption. This attenuation, combined with often noisy environments for civil structures, means that the transducers cannot be separated by large distance before the signal-to-noise ratio. The combination of NDT methods is currently considered as one of the more relevant way to improve the quality of the diagnosis of concrete structures. Indeed, many research actions involve the use of several families of NDT methods (ultrasonic, electromagnetic) for the imaging of structures (voids detection, tendons and reinforcement.

Ultrasonic testing of concrete is an in-situ, nondestructive test to check thickness measurements of concrete and tunnel linings; determining localized defects such as voids, honeycombing; depth and extent of delaminations, and the detection of objects in the concrete such as pipes and tendon ducts beyond the rebar layer.
In the inspection of concrete structures, nondestructive (NDT) testing is a usual practice and many types of methods are used . The main goal of the nondestructive testing is to evaluate. The methods of greatest interest and those adopted in this exercise are the former, i.e.
shear and Rayleigh wave velocity measurement. Shear wave velocity Using two antennae placed at increasing separation on the concrete surface the direct or surface wave is registered as well as the waves reflected from the membrane. Non-destructive tests (NDT) are test methods which are used to examine the hardened concrete structure for their suitability for its intended use without interfering in any way with the integrity of the material or its suitability for service.
So, locating or assessment of defects in structures and checking their dimensions, thickness, and hardness are the […].

Measurement of Concrete Thickness and Detection of Defects Using Ultrasound Methods Ed Pristov1, Wayne Dalton2, and Garland Likins3 ABSTRACT The use of Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) techniques has proven to be effective in determining the thickness of plate like concrete elements and locating defects such as cracks, delaminations, voids.
Providing a comprehensive overview of the techniques involved in testing concrete in structures, Testing of Concrete in Structures discusses both established techniques and new methods, showing potential for future development, and documenting them with illustrative examples.
Topics have been expanded where significant advances have taken place in the field, for example integrity Reviews: 1. Hence this article starts with the basics of the two typical testing methods for concrete cover measurement with high precision. Methods based on Eddy Current and based on Radar are different.
modulus of elasticity of the material; and as far as the concrete is concerned we have a direct empirical relations between Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete (E) and compressive strength of the concrete (fc’). Thus if we can measure the velocity of ultrasonic waves through concrete we might easily get the compressive strength of the concrete.
