NDT uses ultrasonic testing to determine anchor rod lengths; whether anchor rods are straight or bent; and to detect flaws in the anchor rods and bolts. Sign, signal, and lighting structures utilize large anchor rods to provide attachment of the structure to their foundations. These structures are subject to large forces from wind and gravity – particularly cantilever structures – that are transmitted directly to their foundation carried through the anchor rod group. The inspection of roadway signs, light poles and traffic signals requires an assessment of the length, configuration and condition of anchor rods and bolts.
Our testing data are used to evaluate the integrity and condition anchor rods and bolts for structures including:
