A two-part webinar series by Screening Eagle Technologies and MAEK Consulting Pte Ltd, in collaboration with ACI Singapore Chapter.
- 11th May - Part 1 – Building Pathology: Making the Invisible Visible with NDT & Non-Destructive Assessment of Timber Structures.
This webinar introduces non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques for building pathology for typical defects in buildings and heritage timber structures through case studies. NDT techniques - such as infrared thermography, ultrasonic testing, microwave testing, electrical testing and ground penetrating radar - are often used to complement each other for more comprehensive diagnosis and to minimise destructive tests. Proper selection of techniques, measurement parameters and analysis are critical for accurate and comprehensive diagnosis.
- 21st May - Part 2 – NDT for Concrete Investigation.
Investigation and assessment of concrete often calls for use of NDT techniques for the reason that these cause the least damage. The assessment of various types of building materials is critical in determining the condition, cause of defects and more importantly to determine the remaining service life and repair needs. Case studies of NDT applied to concrete will be shared. The correlations between NDT techniques (such as half-cell, resistivity, linear polarization etc.) and laboratory tests are also carried as part of the assessment.
