Cardno - Concrete Scanning
Non Destructive Testing, Ground Penetrating Radar, Cable Locators
Concrete Structural scanning is a non-invasive technology that can detect concrete inconsistencies such as voids, cracks and honeycombing in all concrete structures up to half a metre, as well as shallow engineering and environmental applications.
Concrete imaging is an invaluable investigative method that provides project owners with critical concrete structure information. One of the most common applications is the detection of prestressing cables fitted in concrete structures. These high-strength steel strands are critical to the integrity of the structure, therefore understanding the exact positioning is crucial to avoid damaging them during drilling or cutting.
Other applications include bridges, tunnels, new buildings, restoration projects, car parks and any work involving concrete structures.
Structural scanning is able to provide the following information:
> Concrete slab thickness
> Location, spacing, size and depth of reinforcement
> Location of prestressing cables
> Electrical cables situated within a slab voids
> Accurate location of penetrating exit points to avoid thickenings and beams.
> Inconsistencies such as voids, cracks and honeycombing
> Safe areas for cutting, drilling or coring in concrete slabs and walls
> Changes in concrete composition and any other conflicting anomalies
> Corrosion and moisture measurement > Schmidtt Hammer testing to determine compressive strength (MPa).
