FAQ

Is it possible to detect grouting defects in tendon ducts with ultrasonic pulse echo?

Ultrasonic pulse echo is one of the only technologies that is able to detect grouting defects in tendon ducts. The technique is based on variations in the amplitude detectable in grouted and non-grouted sections. Fully...

Is it possible to measure steel fibre reinforced concrete with ultrasonic pulse-echo?

Yes. Unlike electromagnetic methods such as those employed by GPR and cover meters, which do not work on steel fibre reinforced concrete, ultrasonic pulse echo is well suited for measuring on this material. It has been...

Is it possible to combine multiple stripe scans in the Pundit Live Array app?

With the Pundit Live Array App, you can create a single stripe scan limited to 1.5m in length. If you wish to combine multiple stripe scans to create a wide-area 3D image, this can be done using the Pundit Vision software....

How close to the surface is it possible to measure with ultrasonic pulse-echo technology?

While this is being improved all the time it is possible to give a reference for this. A major study was carried out in Germany that deals with this topic. Here it was shown that 16 mm rebars could be detected with a...

What is the purpose of the macro setting in the Pundit Live Array App?

The macro setting in the Pundit Live Array app adjusts the transmission frequency, the transmission voltage, and the maximum transmission time to optimize values for investigating objects in the near field, intermediate...

Is it possible to measure ultrasonic pulse velocity using the Pundit PD8000?

Ultrasonic pulse velocity measurements are traditionally made with P-waves (compression waves). The Pundit PD8000 provides the alternative of measuring pulse velocity variations using shear waves. A unique feature of the...

See More

Is it possible to detect voids below rebars using ultrasonic pulse echo?

Yes, ultrasonic pulse echo is the correct technology for detecting voids, honeycombs, and delaminations below the rebar grid. Whereas a dense rebar structure will block a GPR signal from penetrating deeper into the...

How deep can I measure with the Pundit PD8000?

There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends very much on the concrete quality and the amount of steel present. Using the Pundit PD8000 instrument with the Far Field macro selected (low frequency and high...
