I-Beam Embedded in Concrete
Determining Steel I-Beam Dimensions
NDT uses ultrasonic measurements to determine the length and thickness of a steel I-beam's web and flanges. These measurements are critical factors for an engineer in determining the structural capacity of a beam in a building or bridge structure.
Often steel I-beams are embedded in concrete on a bridge or behind finished ceilings, walls or floors in a building. NDT technicians use GPR to identify critical locations and drill small holes in the structure to enable access for ultrasonic transducers to measure I-beam dimensions.
