Time & Location

About the event


This presentation will focus on non-destructive evaluation for new and existing concrete foundations. We will explore how NDT/NDE can help engineers in the quality control/quality assurance of new foundations, as well as in the assessment of existing concrete foundations and footings. New Foundations

Non-Destructive Evaluation has been widely used for the quality control and quality assurance of deep foundations. However, the use of NDE methods can be extended to other types of foundations such as mass foundations, and concrete footings.

+ Low Strain Pile Integrity Test + Crosshole Sonic Logging + Thermal Integrity Profiling + Pile Dynamic Analysis

Existing Foundations

As foundation re-use is becoming a popular topic, engineers need new testing methods and protocols to assess the structural integrity of fondations. + Assess Concrete Mechanical and Durability Parameters + Determine physical dimensions (Depth, width, length) + Identify the layout of steel bars and their position/depth + Evaluate the overall structural integrity (Detect voids) + Evaluate the corrosion activity in foundations and footings
