NDT Inspection of Prestressing Tendon Systems in Pressurized Concrete Containments

I am looking for an inspection process to determine cracking, corrosion, etc., of grouted prestressed tendons. The tendons consist of 19 x 0.62 inch diameter strands with access to the ends only.

Thank you

Re: NDT Inspection of Prestressing Tendon Systems in Pressurized Concrete Containments
In the UK a 7.5m long 6mm dia videoscope is used for looking at the tendons of prestressed bridge supports in preperation for increasing the weight limit.

Tendons were failing through corrosion as incorrect grouting procedures were leaving the tendons exposed.

Everest VIT has a video probe that would suit this application.

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
