This article presents a brief review on Non-Destructive Testing of Concrete Foundations. It also discusses how engineers can utilize NDT to assess defects such as cracking and voids, and the deterioration mechanisms such as alkali-silica reactions, and corrosion of steel reinforcement.

Pile Integrity Test can be used to determine the integrity of piles. The method works best for long structural component such as driven concrete piles, cast-in place concrete piles, concrete filled steel pipe piles, timber piles, structural columns. The method works based on measuring and analyzing the velocity (required) and force (optional) response of pile. A hammer (regular or instrumented) is used to impact the pile surface and induce acoustic waves…阅读更多»桩完整性测试的应用与局限性
Safety, reliability and satisfactory performance of structures require a well-planned maintenance program, as well as remedial actions in short and mid-term. Existing structures that are designed in accordance with older design codes or were built by older construction practices may need to be extensively repaired, rehabilitated, or replaced within the next few years. The remedial actions may include structural and/or foundation upgrade or replacement. Reuse of existing piles and foundations is…阅读更多»重用现有桩 - NDT如何提供帮助
Share on linkedin Share on facebook Share on twitter Share on telegram Share on whatsapp Share on email Construction and installation of concrete piles and deep foundations is a challenging task. Problems may occur during the process, which in turn results in defects or anomalies such as: pile formation problems, concrete faults, and reinforcement installation issues. The resulting defects can negatively impact the durability and mechanical performance of the pile.…阅读更多»What is Pile Integrity Test ?
