VII Sep. Sankhla2, Dr. Gehlot3, Akash Gupta4 1 M. Ultrasonic pulse velocity testing of concrete is based on the pulse velocity method to provide information on the uniformity of concrete, cavities, cracks and defects. The pulse velocity in a material depends on its density and its elastic properties which in turn are related to the quality and the compressive strength of the concrete. It is therefore possible to obtain information about the properties of components by sonic investigations. The investigation reported here is to present study of calibration graphs for Non Destructive Testing NDT Equipment, which is ultra sonic pulse velocity test and to study the quality of the concrete in existing structures. These ultra sonic pulse velocity tests were then used to test the quality of the concrete of the various structural elements columns and beams of single storied newly under constructed office building. The use of this method produces results that lie close to the true values when compared with other methods. A correlation between ultra sonic pulse velocity test and strength of concrete structure is established, which can be used for strength estimation of concrete structures. The method can be extended to test existing structures by taking direct measurements on concrete elements. Introduction To keep a high level of structural safety, durability and performance of the infrastructure in each country, an efficient system for early and regular structural assessment is urgently required. The quality assurance during and after the construction of new structures and after reconstruction processes and the characterization of material properties and damage as a function of time and environmental influences is more and more becoming a serious concern.

A comparative analysis given in table 5 is then made to know the effect of reinforcement. The observations and remarks have been given in tables 6 and 7. The assessment of compressive strength of concrete from ultrasonic pulse velocity values is not accurate because the correlation between ultrasonic pulse velocity and compressive strength of concrete is not very clear. Because there are large number of parameters involved which influence the pulse velocity and compressive strength of concrete to different extents.

However, if details of material and mix proportions adopted in the particular structure are available, then estimate of concrete strength can be made by establishing suitable correlation between the pulse velocity and the compressive strength of concrete specimens made with such material and mix proportions, under environmental conditions similar to that in the structure.

Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Method

The correlation so obtained may not be applicable for concrete of another grade or made with different types of material. At some places in columns USPV gave no results or indicated that the velocity was out of range. This place gave a unique sound on striking softly with a hard material like iron which clearly indicated a void in between the concrete. A general trend was obtained in the columns. The trend was such that towards the base of the column the tests always showed a higher quality of concrete i.

The compressive strength went on decreasing as we go up towards the roof. A graph has been plotted with increasing height against the predicted compressive strength obtained on the basis of the USPV evaluation. It is evident from the graph that the compressive strength goes on decreasing with increase in height of column Figure 2.

Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Method

The reason for this variation is better compaction at the base. Since all the weight of the column acts at the base higher compaction is achieved and also better compaction facilities are available near the base and process compaction becomes difficult as we go up. No such regular trend was observed for beams.

Conclusions The main conclusions drawn from investigation performed are as follow: 1. The poor quality concrete allows the ingress of moisture and oxygen to the reinforcing bars, and hence corrosion occurs.

Presently the system is limited to penetration depths of 1 ft. Research is ongoing to develop a system that can penetrate to a depth of 10 ft or more. The pulse velocity method is an ideal tool for establishing whether concrete is uniform.

It can be used on both existing structures and those under construction 3. Usually, if large differences in pulse velocity are found within a structure for no apparent reason, there is strong reason to presume that defective or deteriorated concrete is present. Fairly good correlation can be obtained between cube compressive strength and pulse velocity. Ultrasonic pulse velocity tests have a great potential for concrete control, particularly for establishing uniformity and detecting cracks or defects.

Its use for predicting strength is much more limited, owing to the large number of variables affecting the relation between strength and pulse velocity. The deviation between actual results and predicted results may be attributed to the fact that a sample from existing structures was obtained by using various corrections introduced in the specifications. The method presented is simple, quick, reliable, and covers wide ranges of concrete strengths..

The method can be easily applied to concrete specimens as well as existing concrete structures by taking direct measurements on concrete elements. The final results were compared with previous ones from literature and also with actual results obtained from samples collected from existing structures.

The correlation curves established in the study can be useful for the assessment of the quality of the concrete in an existing nearby structures made with the similar grade of the concrete and the similar sources of the DOI: Unlike other work, the research ended with important and useful charts that require no previous knowledge of the constituents of the tested concrete.

OF RESULTS rebound hammer method provides a convenient and rapid indication of the compressive strength of concrete by means of establishing a suitable correlation between the rebound index and the compressive strength of concrete.

As such. In general. I number is very surface on the rebound significant. Carbonated concrete gives an overestimate of strength which in extreme cases can be up to 50 percent.

It is possible to establish correction factors by removing the carbonated layer and testing the concrete with the rebound hammer on the uncarbonated concrete.
