Inspection (NDE)- Concrete and Risers

Inspection (NDE)- Concrete and Risers

Inspection (NDE)- Concrete and Risers

Good day all,

2 issues -
1. I'm looking for a way to inspect concrete, for eg the posts/piles holding up a reformer. Can anyone assist with an appropriate method or supplier?

I know there are the methods to check the rebars etc, but are there any further inspection techniques to determine the integrity of the comcrete structures?

2. Besides guided wave inspection, what is the best method to determine corrosion, etc on offshore risers, especially those under the splash zone to the platforms.
i have some risers, jacket legs,etc to inspect, and the best method i have in mind is long range/guided wave ultrsonics, which is a very good screening tool, but i'd like to know if there are any other methods out there.


RE: Inspection (NDE)- Concrete and Risers

see if you can find info here (these guys have a good bit of info on nde methods).  http://olsonengineering.com/2007site/main.php?section=methods

are you trying to look for voids, evaluate strength, etc.? are you looking for someone that can do the testing? if so what is your location?

good luck

RE: Inspection (NDE)- Concrete and Risers

I will check the site. Yes I'm looking for voids, strength, degradation, etc. I'm also looking for a potential partnership with a person/company to offer the service in Trinidad, west indies. I am part of a large organization which does advanced NDE and asset integrity in plants in the Caribbean.
Let me know if you're interested and you can post your contact info for me.
