NDT-CE Symposium Berlin 1995:
Author:G. Schickert DGZfP, Berlin (D)
The Full Program
PAGE 1PAGE 2||PAGE 3
According to this line the following overview is somewhat a catalogue raisonne or a guide through the subjects of the symposium, the problems and the objects which have to be tested. Last but not least it shows the present situation in non-destructive testing in civil engineering all over the world which is based on former developments /L101/L102/. In this way the reader may be encouraged to undertake his own new steps in applying NDT-CE methods. Obviously it is not possible, however, to take into consideration all aspects of each contribution. There is no judgement in citing statements or results of research nor the special use or designation of a testing method. This is at the respective author's own responsibility.
Some definitions, however, should be used in the same way. The term "diagnosis of a building or structural member" is a generic expression without special meaning. "Inspection" describes an activity which has to be repeated at certain intervals such as months or years. Contrary to this a "control" of a structure is carried out if there is a demand for testing. Finally "monitoring" requires a continuous observation with or without instrumentation.
Dr. Gerald Schickert|
was born and educated in Berlin. He served for 10 years at the Engineering University of Berlin as a traffic engineering and road construction specialist and played a key role in the development of Hannover's underground subway. Since 1965 he has worked at the BAM Berlin, where the focus on concrete inspection has been an ideal environment for Dr. Schickert's groundbreaking research in that area.
In 1972 Schickert began teaching civil engineering at the TU Berlin and was tenured in 1986. From 1979 he served as manager of BAM's Testing in Civil Engineering Department, and was promoted to Director in 1980.
In 1986 Gerald Schickert received the German Government's Award for his work in Saudi Arabia regarding the establishment of standards and material testing. From 1986 until 1995 he held the chair of the NDT civil committee at the DGZfP. Despite his retirement in 1996, he is still active in his profession, and has more time to pursue his other interests, which include ancient cultures and traveling to Egypt and Mexico. When in Berlin he enjoys attending the opera and musical theatre.
