Using Ground Penetrating Radar to See Through Concrete

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) is an incredibly useful non-destructive testing technique for inspecting concrete structures in the construction industry. GPR allows you to essentially see through the concrete to visualize what is inside – things like rebar, post-tension cables, conduits, and concrete quality issues such as voids,lamination,corrosion,cracks or other defects. GPR is versatile technology that … Read more

Vibration of concrete: how and why it is done

What is the vibration of concrete? Vibrating concrete is an important step of concreting that expels the entrapped air and excess water from freshly placed concrete and increases the density of the concrete. It is a must-done procedure of concreting immediately after pouring except for special types of concrete such as self-compacting concrete that does … Read more
