Surveys – Concrete deterioration
A thorough survey of concrete may be required when there are signs of concrete deterioration.
In such circumstances, it is recommended to have a thorough survey of concrete performed as soon as possible by a duly qualified specialist engineer who will investigate and provide an opinion on the following issues:
- Identification of the causes of concrete deterioration
- Assessment of the structural capacity
- Technical opinion with respect to repair and reuse of damaged concrete structures: parkings, façades, etc.
- Concrete sampling and testing
- Assessment of the potential of corrosion (corrosion of reinforcements)
- Assessment of cracking (instrumentation)
- Thorough analysis of the characteristics of concrete
