A Quick Guide on Concrete Piles Assessment?

A reliable condition assessment of substructures (foundations and piles) needs a basic information about type, material and as-built dimension. Read more…

 

How Can You Monitor Cracks and Displacement with Wireless Sensors?

Movements of the structural members within certain ranges indicate the integrity and safe operation of that structure. The Resensys structural health monitoring (SHM) solution can be used for monitoring displacement in bridge and structural members. Read more…

 

iCor™ – A Novel Wireless Corrosion Rate Measurement Device

The iCOR™ device, invented by Giatec Scientific Inc., is a novel compact and comprehensive NDT tool for detailed corrosion evaluation of reinforced concrete structures. Read more…

How can Electrical resistivity be used to determine Chloride Diffusion Coefficient?

Electrical resistivity has been employed as a quality control method to evaluate chloride permeability in concrete. Recently, though, research has shown that there is an excellent correlation between electrical resistivity of concrete (4 probe wenner) and chloride diffusion coefficient of concrete, which can directly be used in predicting the service life of an element*.

Durability in Concrete

“Durability of concrete may be defined as its resistance to deteriorating influences which may, through inadvertence or ignorance, reside in the concrete itself, or are inherent in the environment to which it is exposed”. Read more.
