Non-Destructive Tests

Struct-Mast Engineers has one division undertaking non-destructive tests over concrete to assess the deterioration of concrete structures and also to ascertain desired properties of repaired concrete member as for post repair management of the structures for condition evaluation and maintenance.  We believe that NDT plays an important role in the condition monitoring of existing RC structures. NDT methods are known to be better to assess and evaluate the condition of RC structures practically.Several national and international codes of practice accepted and include the NDT methods.Popular NDT Tests for Concrete Used in field are:

  • Rebound Hammer Test
  • Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity
  • Core Extraction for Compressive Strength Test
  • Ingredient Analysis of Concrete Core
  • Concrete Cover Measurement

Major advantage of NDT methods has been recognized as their capability to test in situ.
