Detecting The Strength Of The Building

It is very important to know the strength of various structures of the building. The most important of all is to know about the strength of the pillars of the building on which the whole structure is build. These pillars bear the entire load of the roof on them. In order to know the strength of the pillars cover meter survey is done. In this survey, the depth of the concrete is being measured without breaking the structure with the help of electromagnetic waves.

How does it work?

In this survey, the reinforcement of the concrete is measured by passing of the electromagnetic ways through the concrete. The status of the steel bar, its depth, the thickness of the bar is calculated with the effect which it has on the electromagnetic waves.

Why to conduct the survey?

This survey is conducted to determine the strength of the existing structure of the building. This also helps to know whether the steel bars which are intact are weakened by the seepage of carbonated water in the pillars and the column. This survey helps the contractor in restructuring of the building and for extension work of the building. This helps him to calculate the exact amount of material to be procured depending upon the life of the building required by the owners of the building. This is the best technique to know the strength of the building without any damage done to the building. This building test is also significant for taking the sample of the concrete to determine the strength of the concrete.
