Structural surveys and diagnostic tests
Non-destructive tests and destructive tests in recent years have taken on greater importance for the diagnosis and control of buildings, even under the new regulations (technical standards for constructions and Ordinance No. 3274 P.C.M e s.m.i.).
The widespread degradation and collapse of many urban areas denoted in recent years on reinforced concrete structures and masonry requires specific know-how regarding materials controls in opera. The ability to assess the reliability of public and private structures, reinforced concrete or masonry, which is closely linked to in situ parameters estimation using non-destructive techniques and destructive.
GEOTEC s.r.l provides design services and construction of structural tests and laboratory site, aimed at the implementation or the conservation of the architectural heritage and existing infrastructure. Such tests, thanks to the use of increasingly sophisticated equipment and innovative, let you capture a range of data and parameters necessary for the formulation of an opinion on the State of security and eventual deterioration of a building structure.
Non-destructive testing (concrete hammer tests, pacometriche, ultrasonic investigation, combined SONREB tests, Pull-out tests).
Diagnosis of masonry structures: State of stress measurement with single flat Jack tests, determining the characteristics of the wall facing with tests with double flat, Jack wall, video inspections stratigrafie.
Diagnosis of concrete structures: non-destructive testing for the indirect measurement of stress, drawing parameters of concrete cores, relief of armor and stress state in site (strain gage).
Load tests on structural elements (floors, ladders and swings) and pilings.
Drilling in masonry and structural elements and laboratory tests.
Direct essays and withdrawal of reinforcement bars.
Determination of carbonation depth by treatment with phenolphthalein on concrete carrots.
Investigations with endoscope in holes previously made.
Seismic tomography for structural investigations noninvasive.
Determination of thickness using ultrasonic pulses ( "spessimetrico" method).
Determination of the tensile strength of steel by means of microhardness Vickers.
