the best method for detecting and localize the rebars

Hi,

To confirm the appropriate overlapping of the rebars at the construction joint, I am looking for the method that can tell me if there is rebar or not at the joint.

if anybody could tell me the potential methods that may answer my question, I will definitely apprepriate.

Thanks!

With the information you have provided, I assume you are talking about reabars in a cement floor? If you have access to both side of the slab, I suggest doing radiography using Co 60. I believe the equivalence factor for cement is 10:1 compare to steel. This way you will also have an exact picture of the way it is inside. There maybe other ways that I don't know. My experience in that field is very limited. I hope this will help you.

ISAFE3 Intrinsically Safe Sensor System

ISAFE3 intrinsically safe sensor system of Vallen Systeme is especially targeted at the petrochemica
...
l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
