Rebound hammer

Schmidt Hammer/Rebound Hammer Rebound Hammer Test 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 The Rebound Hammer Test is a non-destructive test of compressive strength of concrete conducted following the ASTM C805 standard. The compressive strength of concrete is a crucial value in structural assessment as it is the main variable that can affect the load […]

Visual inspection

Visual Inspection Test Basic technique for building assessment 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Visual inspections are generally conducted as the first step of structural evaluations due to its simplicity and benefit-to-cost advantage. The structural geometries, e.g. tilting, levelness, plumb, and settlement, will be carefully investigated using geometric surveying equipment (digital […]

Steel Tensile Test

The Steel Tensile Test is used to determine yield strength, ultimate strength, and fracture strength of existing steel members. In the testing process, samples are taken from the steel members in structures such as factory roof trusses or parking roof trusses. The results of the Steel Tensile Test will be used in further analyses and evaluations of the structures.

Parallel seismic test

Parallel Seismic Test 1 2 3 The Parallel Seismic Test is a non-destructive test used to determine the pile length when the details of the foundation are no longer available, or when the constructed pile length is questionable. Test equipment consists of accelerometers, an impact hammer, and the data acquisition system (DAQ). The hammer is […]

Ferroscan test

Ferro Scan test and covermeter 1 2 3 4 5 6 The Ferro Scan Test or Electromagnetic Cover Measurement is one of the non-destructive tests used to determine the positions and the quantity of reinforcement steel inside concrete members. This test can be used to inspect old buildings which do not have structural drawings or […]
