Concrete Scanning

Concrete Scanning

Concrete scanning is the process of using specialized equipment to create a detailed image of the interior of a concrete structure, without causing any damage to the surface of the concrete. The goal of concrete scanning is to locate embedded objects, such as reinforcing steel, post-tension cables, conduits, or voids, within a concrete structure.

Concrete scanning is typically used in construction and engineering projects to ensure the safety and integrity of concrete structures. By scanning for embedded objects and other irregularities, engineers, and contractors can identify potential hazards or structural weaknesses before they become a problem. This can save time, and money, and, most importantly, prevent accidents or other safety issues.

There are several types of concrete scanning methods available, including ground-penetrating radar (GPR), magnetic particle testing (MPT), and ultrasonic testing (UT). Each method has its advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of method depends on the specific project and the desired outcome. The results of concrete scanning are typically presented in a report that provides detailed information on the location, depth, and size of any detected anomalies or objects within the concrete structure.
