MASONRY SYSTEMS EVALUATION

 

ASSESSMENT OF MASONRY STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS

Why is testing of masonry structural systems required?
Façade Panels, Architectural panels, Quarry, drywall, masonry flooring, are structures that do not have the same stability as reinforced concrete structures. Sometimes the panels are not properly anchored to the structure, endangering the life of people approaching the structures. Visual inspection is not sufficient to assess the stability of the panels.

Advanced Ultrasonic Methods: Evaluation of Masonry Stability
Neodex uses Nondestructive Methods to evaluate the stability and structural integrity of masonry systems. Our method is based on determining the mobility of the structure to generate a quick diagnostic of its condition.

Impulse-Response (ASTM C1740): By analyzing the frequency domain of induced forces and stres-waves into bricks or panels we can complete a rapid assessment of the stability of the system.
