The velocity of ultrasonic pulses travelling in a solid material depends upon the density and elastic properties of that material.
Recognized for testing concrete this method of test may be applied to plain, reinforced and pre-stressed concrete whether it is precast or cast insitu.
The measurement of pulse velocity may be used to determine the homogeneity of the concrete, the presence of voids, cracks or other imperfections and, even changes which may occur over time or through external influences.
The latest PUNDIT manufactured by PROCEQ SA features online data acquisition, waveform analysis and full remote control of all transmission parameters.
Transmission and receiving transducers are connected to the instrument. Transducers may be applied to the material under test directly, semi-directly or indirectly (surface).
The measurement of pulse velocity will generally depend upon the properties of the material under test and the velocity measurement enables an assessment to be made as to the condition of the material.
The PUNDIT can be used with a variety of transducers and accessories.
