[OnDemand Webinar] Mitigating Construction Vibration Risks

Mitigating Construction Vibration Risks

Construction vibrations are a nuisance to owners, contractors and the general public, but are unavoidable in many circumstances. Join us for a free webinar as we look at the options for mitigating risk of vibration damage claims. Pre-construction condition surveys, vibration control plans and vibration monitors provide a three phase approach to risk management. In addition, we will explore the current technology and methodology for these services and discuss how they can be applied to different projects....

[OnDemand Webinar] Nondestructive Testing of Concrete

Concrete Performance – An Owner’s Perspective

Concrete is widely regarded as the most used man-made material in the world. Even with superb advances in modern concrete technologies to make more durable, longer-lasting structures today, the need for assessment and evaluation of existing concrete structures has never been higher. Non-destructive testing (NDT) of concrete is a commonly used (and often misused) approach to evaluate existing concrete structures. Learn more about non-destructive testing and how it can be an asset in the evaluation of concrete structures. This presentation will help you to understand: The difference between concrete NDT and other common NDE methods NDT for concrete strength versus...

ASCE Sponsored Presentation on Non-Destructive Testing – October 19th in Lafayette, LA

Ground Penetrating Radar

Non-destructive testing techniques have not changed in many years, although we are seeing an increase in their use. With more powerful computers, able to handle reams of data in real time on a project site, the sky may be the limit for non-destructive testing. Braun Intertec invites you to attend a presentation by our very own Alfred Gardiner, PE on non-destructive testing. We will cover how to use these techniques, what techniques work in different situations, and will review case studies of GPR, Pulse Velocity, Impact Echo, Parallel Seismic, and much more. When: October 19, 2017 at 6:00 PM Where: Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar, 2336 Kaliste Saloom...

Electronic Field Vector Mapping: The New Nondestructive Testing Method That Saves Time

Electronic Field Vector Mapping

What is Electronic Field Vector Mapping (EFVM)? EFVM is becoming one of the most popular forms of quality control testing for architects, specifiers, contractors, manufacturers and building owners across the United States. This new nondestructive test, in accordance with ASTM D7877-14, “Standard Guide for Electronic Methods for Detecting and Locating Leaks in Waterproof Membranes,” takes half the time to locate potential holes or current leaks in new and existing roofing and waterproofing membranes than the traditional flood testing approach. How Does EFVM Work? Instead of building dams around the membrane section to be tested, which can result in additional stress...
