Construction Test and Measure

Construction Test and Measure [Formerly Construction NDT] is PCTE's newsletter, first released  in August 2011 in this format we are extremely proud of the articles and information that we have produced internally and those that have been shared by our partners, suppliers and customers.

Construction Test and Measure April 2017

We look at the non-destructive testing methods that can be used to locate defects in concrete as well as some of the basic methods for processing GPR data.

Construction Test and Measure February 2017

The first newsletter for 2017 discusses the Deflsko Positector range along with the benefits of cover meter system in pre cast yards. 

Construction Test and Measure September 2016

A newsletter discussing the use of the LMX-200 GPR with GPS data and Google maps and presenting a case study on structural monitoring using vibrating wire crack meters. 

Construction NDT July 2016

We look at confirming testing equipment meets a standard and a detailed case study of meeting the ASTM F2170 standard for humdity testing of concrete.

Construction NDT March 2016

To support corrosion investigation works one of our articles this month talks about tools for corrosion monitoring. We also discuss the benefits of Light Weight Deflectometers in evaluating pavement systems.

Construction NDT December 2015

In our final newsletter issue for the year we are looking at raw data from two systems, GPR systems for utility location and the raw magnetic measurements from a cover meter. 

Construction NDT May 2016

We have two topics for this issue: one for temperature monitoring of bulk concrete pours and the other focusing on the Silver Schmidt Hammer and converting its Q value results to R values common to older correlation curves built using an Original Schmidt.

Construction NDT March 2015

Our articles this month are a technical overview of compression machines and force measurement and a case study on locating post tensioning with GPR systems.

Construction NDT October 2014

As more and more quality assurance specifications require concrete cover checks nowadays, we will give you a comprehensive overview of how to carry them out properly. We will also present an extract from our Australasian Tunnelling Society conference paper on geotechnical instrumentation of tunnels.

Construction NDT July 2014

We discuss the finer points of impact echo testing for shallow foundations, along with a summary of the results of I Dumitru's paper on the effects that grinding cylinder ends before compressive testing compare with results from cylinders that are sulphur or rubber capped.

Construction NDT March 2014

Ultrasonics is the focus for the March issue of Construction NDT, looking at ultrasonic pulse echo data processing, along with the regular sound wave sister to ultrasonic pulse velocity, sonic pulse veocity testing.

Construction NDT November 2013

Once again this issue overlaps with the Australian Corrosion Association's conferece. Discussed topics include Corrosiion Monitoring and Half cell potential investigations. 

Construction NDT September 2013

Structural Health Monitoring and Geotechnical Testing take centre stage in this issue of Construction NDT. There is a also a vibrating wire sensors case study. 

Construction NDT July 2013

With a new year Construction NDT went back to basics, discussing hints and tips for succesful completing of any testing job, the role of standards and also a in depth analysis of different testing methods that can be used for concrete thickness measurements. 

Construction NDT November 2012

This months issue of Construction NDT overlaps with the Australasian Corrosion Association’s annual conference, it features a revised article on Resistance and Resistivity and some information on state of the art ground penetrating radar technologies for corrosion investigation

Construction NDT March 2012

In our first issue for 2012 we focus on pile and foundatin tests, with a fantastic case study and technical overview of Sonic Echo/Impulse Response testing and quick overview of the other tests that can be applied to this broad area of testing.

Construction NDT November 2011

The november issue of Concrete NDT in 2011 lined up with 18th International Corrosion Congress and to celebreate we focused upon all things corrosion. We talk about corrosion monitoring and investgation and look in detail at Concrete Resistivity as a quality assurance tool.

Construction NDT August 2011

In this issue we look at strength testing using the Reb-Ultra method which combines ultrasonic testing and rebound hammer testing. Secondly we look at the challanges of locating footing and some of the equipment that can be used to assist the hunt.
