Concrete

Knowing the quality of the concrete being used in construction is a requirement at building sites worldwide. Concrete slump testing is a quick and easy procedure that can be performed in real-time and on-site that is used to determine the workability as well as the consistency of fresh concrete. Concrete with slump values that...

Soil, Nuclear Density Gauge

Soil density is an important factor to most construction projects and provides critical support for buildings, roads, pavements and other structures. Soil is frequently disturbed during the development process resulting in the introduction of air or water into the ground. Any water particles or air voids must be removed from...

Asphalt, Ductility Testing

What is Ductility Testing? Materials that are capable of deforming plastically before fracturing are defined as ductile. Ductile testing, therefore, involves measuring the amount of stress that can be applied to a material without fracture. Why is Ductile Testing Important? Ductile testing will tell you the tensile strength of...

Soil, Hydrometer Analysis

What is a Hydrometer? Hydrometers are used to measure the relative density of a liquid. They are primarily made of glass and have two parts: the hydrometer with a mercury weighted bulb at the bottom and a cylinder with graduation marks. The science behind the hydrometer is simple – the lower the density of the liquid, the more...

Concrete, Non-destructive Testing (NDT)

Half Cell corrosion mapping is an effective method for assessing the severity of corrosion in reinforced concrete structures. This rapid, cost-effective and non-destructive survey method provides key information in corrosion evaluations. Corrosion of steel reinforcement is a major factor in the deterioration of highway and...
