Our Services Include
Condition Assessment & Nondestructive Testing
The goal in engineering investigative work is to determine the existing conditions of the structure in question and predict past and future conditions of that structure.
Some investigative options, such as removing a brick veneer to observe the otherwise concealed back-up wall, significantly alter the conditions found in the field. Therefore, methods which have little effect on the existing conditions, i.e., nondestructive methods, are highly desirable.
Nondestructive testing (NDT) is a powerful set of tools used by WDP engineers during structural evaluations and facade investigations. WDP has developed extensive expertise in NDT, especially relating to concrete and masonry, in order to gain an understanding of the existing conditions of structures at the least cost and disruption to the client. WDP also provides NDT services as a sub-consultant to other professionals.
NDT services which WDP provides include:
- Impact-Echo Testing
- Infrared Thermography
- Surface-Penetrating Radar
- Steel Reinforcement and Anchorage Location
- Static and Dynamic Load Testing
- Electrochemical Corrosion Testing
- Videoscope Surveys
