Concrete X-rays and Coring and Concrete Technology

These days the importance of assessing concrete structures cannot be overemphasized. Today's construction industry focuses on locating embedded objects such as tendons and other internal structures prior to any construction work. This is to minimize the maintenance cost associated with the repair of post-tension cables and reinforcing steel after construction has begun.

Ground Penetrating Radar or GPR technology is widely used to locate metallic and nonmetallic structures before drilling or cutting concrete structures GPR is a low-risk technology and provides many benefits over other techniques. It is a nondestructive and nondisruptive process that works without affecting its surroundings.


Concrete Technology

Concrete technologists are involved in research projects and special investigations relating to building and construction material techniques. This is a responsible position since poor-quality concrete can negatively affect the strength of a building.

Concrete technologists apply their knowledge of the properties of concrete to ensure that concrete is produced to a high standard. They are involved in the practical and technical aspects of concrete construction.
