CONCRETE TESTING

For the non destructive location of rebars and for the measurement of concrete cover and bar diameters, we use the eddy current principle with pulse induction as the measuring method. By using this method we can detect the rebar diameter accurately to the millimeter.

We perform the following services:

  • • Locating rebar
  • • Concrete cover meter
  • • Storing individual cover values and statistical evaluation
  • • Determining the bar diameters
  • • 2-dimensional display of rebar layout
  • • 2-dimensional display and mapping of concrete cover values
