Research Unit Concrete Damage Assessment by Coda Waves

Condition assessment and surveillance are prerequisites for an efficient maintenance of reinforced concrete structures. Consequently, there is a need for reliable and cost efficient methods which are able to detect defects, monitor the actual condition and predict the future evolution of the condition of reinforced concrete structures. This research unit proposes to make a significant contribution to develop CWI for reinforced concrete structures applicable to field practice in order to monitor and predict reliably and cost efficiently the progress of the condition of the reinforced concrete structure.
