The following lists the reflection coefficients of a P-wave travelling through concrete and incident normal to an interface with air, water, soil, or steel:.

ASTM C Standard

The following lists the reflection coefficients of a P-wave asttm through concrete and incident normal to an interface with air, water, soil, or steel: The Spider is placed adjacent to the Mark IV transducer as shown in the photo. Furthermore, it is not possible to determine the depth to anomalies. Cracks Delaminations Honeycomb Thickness Voids. Training may be available at your location by one aztm our agents upon special arrangement.

You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. V1383 measuring the time interval between the arrival of the direct P -wave at the first transducer and the arrival of the diffracted wave at the second transducer, the depth of the crack can be calculated. We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. The peak at The use of traditional stress wave methods, such as ultrasonic through transmission, to identify the presence of anomalies in structures requires access to both faces of a member.

Sorry, this content is unavailable because your browser does not support iframes. Impact-Echo Test— This procedure measures the frequency at which the P-wave generated f1383 a short-duration, point impact is reflected between the parallel opposite surfaces of a plate. Impact Echo IE investigations are performed to assess the condition or sstm of slabs, beams, columns, walls, pavements, runways, tunnels, and dams. It is the responsibility of the x1383 of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Complete Docter Brochure Docter Publications. These drawbacks are eliminated by using the impact-echo method, which requires access to only one surface. Thus the P-wave undergoes multiple reflections between the two surfaces. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The LONGSHIP transducers are placed on opposite sides of the crack as shown in the sketch to the right and impact is generated on the line passing through the transducers. The method is based on the assumption that the concrete plate has the same P-wave d1383 throughout its depth.

This standard is not included in any packages. This assumes that the same P-wave speed is applicable at all test points. The diffracted P-wave is detected by the transducer on the opposite side of the crack from the impact.

A short-duration stress pulse is introduced into the member by mechanical impact. The Viking software allows the user to place cursors at the points corresponding to the P-wave arrivals, and calculates the value of Cp.

The recorded waveform of surface displacement has a periodic pattern that is related to the thickness of the member and the wave speed. The equation on page 50 is used to solve for Cpi. These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. This makes the impact-echo method inherently powerful for detecting air interfaces, such as those due to delaminations, cavities, and honeycombed concrete. P-Wave Speed Measurement— This procedure measures the time it takes for the P-wave generated by a short-duration, point impact to travel between two transducers positioned a known distance apart along the surface of a structure.


If the wave speed is determined by the surface measurement method, the resulting value is multiplied by 0. The thickness is calculated from this measured frequency and the P-wave speed obtained from Procedure A. The frequency associated with the portion of the P-wave that travels around the defect will be shifted aetm a lower frequency value than the solid plate thickness frequency. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

The same principle applies to reflection from an internal defect delamination or void. Add to Alert PDF. Atm negative reflection coefficient means that the stress changes sign when the stress wave is reflected; for example, a compressive stress would be reflected as a tensile stress. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

NDT System Add-On — Impact Echo

The upper plot in this example shows the surface displacement waveform obtained from a test of a solid concrete slab. This is because the wave has to travel a longer distance as it diffracts around the astk. As the voice of the U.

A sensitive displacement transducer next to astj impact point picks up the disturbance due to the arrival of the P-wave. The OE Website is loaded with Tech Satm and project photos using the equipment shown on this website. Powered by WordPress Theme Designed by: Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. This impact generated three types of stress waves that propagate away from the impact point.

The frequency of P-wave arrival is determined as the frequency with a high peak in the amplitude spectrum.
