Non-Destructive Testing of Concrete Structures

After participating in the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the theory of different techniques used in the non-destructive tests
  • Apply the knowledge gained at the seminar to plan for the appropriate non-destructive tests
  • Develop testing program to evaluate the existing condition of the structure
  • Analyze the result of the tests with understanding the test their elucidation results  
  • Use the relevant codes related to the tests in the final report

This seminar introduces theory and practice of conducting a non-destructive evaluation of concrete structures. The non-destructive tests include visual inspection, ultrasonic pulse velocity, rebound hammer, penetration resistance, maturity method, rebar detection and mapping, impact-echo, and surface penetrating radar.

Investigation approach and analysis used for different cases are discussed. Test influencing factors are also mentioned. The codes regulating the non-destructive tests are discussed. To ensure a thorough understanding, the course concludes with examples showing how to plan investigations and interpret results.
