Nondestructive Testing (NDT)
Our staff of professional engineers, scientists, and technicians has the knowledge and depth of experience to support your needs relating to issues that require a less intrusive option. We have experience assessing and evaluating large structural elements such as buildings, bridges, dams, roadways and small members like slabs, railings, or individual anchors. With a full assortment of nondestructive testing (NDT) equipment and trained personnel, Braun Intertec is equipped to take on your project whether it’s a missed structural inspection, re-creating structural details on a 100-year-old building, or locating a time capsule.
We have a full suite of in-house NDT equipment that can be altered for your specific needs. As listed below our equipment ranges from common NDT methods to more obscure geophysical applications.
