Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of Concrete

by Darren Marrese October 15th, 2018 in News
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is a very valuable tool that helps us look inside a structural member investigating the entire component (vs. one location) and accomplishes this without causing damage to the member. You can join the WebEx presentation Thursday, November 15 at 2pm CST by clicking the link.

National Bridge Preservation Partnership
An important step in the preservation process is to gain an understanding of the current condition of a bridge structure.   Many times, this requires a detailed inspection to determine the cause, extent and magnitude of concrete deterioration. Concrete and corrosion assessments are useful to determine what is necessary to repair the structure and if additional means are necessary to meet its forecasted service life requirements.
