AdvancedImpact-Echo Testing Device
FPrimeC Impact-Echo is an innovative wireless impact-echo testing instrument for integrity testing of thin concrete members.
Impact-Echo can be used for plate-like concrete structural members such as slabs, slab-on-grade, concrete pavements, decks, walls and tunnel linings.
Estimate the Thickness of thin concrete slabs and walls:
Identify Location and Extent of Voids and Delamination:
Detect Voids in Grouted Tendon Ducts:
How Does It Work ?
Impact-Echo uses the principles of stress-wave propagation in plate-like elements to study the internal voids and defects in concrete members. The testing procedure is completed in three simple steps.
✅ A small ball impactor is used to strike the test point.
✅ Collect the echoes reflected from boundaries, voids, and delamination
✅ Analyze the test results (time domain and frequency domain), and develop contour maps of sub-surface defects.
