All of Olson Instruments have been researched, tested, and used on-site daily by our sister company, Olson Engineeringworld reknowned for NDT consulting. There is a certain level of systematic error in the calculated thickness due to the discrete nature of the digital records that are used. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
No other units of measurement are included in this standard. The P-wave speed is calculated by dividing the distance between the two transducers by the travel time.
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: Click here for Agents.
The frequency associated with the portion of the P-wave that travels around the defect will be shifted to a lower frequency value than the solid plate thickness frequency.

The frequency shift is a good indicator of the presence of a flaw if it is known that the plate thickness is constant.
NDT System Add-On — Impact Echo
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:. A negative reflection coefficient means that the stress changes sign when the stress wave is reflected; qstm example, a compressive stress would asm reflected as a tensile stress. Thus the correct equation for thickness calculation is: Cracks Delaminations Honeycomb Thickness Voids. The absolute systematic error depends on the plate thickness, the sampling interval, and the sampling period.
The recorded waveform of surface displacement has a periodic pattern that is related to the thickness of the member and the wave speed.
ASTM C Standard
In impact-echo testing, the P-wave is used to axtm information about the member. Lastly, the IE method will provide information on the depth of a flaw or defect, in addition to mapping its lateral location and extent.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The P-wave generated by impact will reflect at interfaces c1338 the concrete where there is a change in acoustic impedancewhich is defined as the product of the density and wave speed of a material.

If these conditions are not satisfied, the waveform will be of low amplitude and the amplitude spectrum will not include a dominant peak at the frequency corresponding to the thickness Eq 2. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish c11383 safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The DOCter can also asfm used to measure the depth of surface-opening cracks, using a time domain analysis.
This is because the wave has to travel a longer distance as it diffracts around the flaw. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for aatm standards.
The frequency content covered by the Spider impactors is approximately 1. Accurate measurement of thickness requires knowledge of the in-place P-wave speed.

You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. The diffracted P-wave is detected by the transducer on the adtm side of the crack from the impact. IE investigations can also be performed to predict the strength of early age concrete if the member thickness is known.

Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. The DOCter is a versatile, portable system based on the impact-echo method, and can be used for the following applications: The same principle applies to reflection from an sstm defect delamination or void.
This standard is asrm included in any packages. The Spider multiple impactor unit can be purchased as an option to increase the operating range of the systems. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. 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.
