Condition Surveys of Grout and Foundation Status

Review of history of installation, outages and vibration levels. Analysis of foundation design and construction, with calculations of mass and evaluation of form. Identification of actual and potential cold joints, stress risers, and stress-induced cracking. Analysis of support system, including the original grout and anchor bolts. Analysis of grout disbonding, corrosion, oil degradation and other anomalies. Verification of levels and deflection readings. In addition, at the clients request, we can take core samples to check various parameters, such as carbonation testing (phenolphthalein test), chloride testing and directly measured compressive strength. Other possible tests include Schmidt hammer testing, ultrasonic p-wave and s-wave testing, impact-echo testing, eddy current rebar location, etc. Preparation of report indicating recommended actions
