Structural State Tests Of Constructions

 Epidomos Ltd has a seismic evaluation laboratory for constructions and performs Structural State Tests Of Constructions

• Detection of steel: Finds the exact position of reinforced steel
• Mapping of steel: Finds the position, distance, diameter and concrete cover of steel
• Measurement of the carbonation depth of concrete with chemicals
• Measurement of the damaged zone of concrete due to fire
• Measurement of the chlorides content in concrete
• Measurement of the pH of concrete
• Measurement of the steel corrosion rate and half cell potential
• Measurement of the electrical resistance of concrete
• Environmental Measurements (relative humidity, carbon dioxide, temperature, air chlorides etc)
• Monitoring of Cracks
• Detection of cracks, discontinuities in concrete

The test results are evaluated while checking for the correct application of the existing structural drawings. If there are no structural drawings, Epidomos Ltd. undertakes to make the geometric mapping of the structure and the restoration of these drawings. Then the static recalculation of the structure is performed based on the Greek earthquake regulations and the regulations of Reinforced Concrete. The result is whether the building complies with these regulations and which deficienciesoccur. The audit is completed with a static reinforcement design in order to overcome the deficiencies or a study of maintenance (when there are no deficiencies).

The above procedure is the ideal solution for accurate estimation of the static strength of any existing structure. Such an assessment is necessary before any kind of repair from earthquake, fire, erosion, aging, fatigue, foundation settling, unstable or poor quality concrete and poor work.

These operations can be applied to homes, business premises, industrial or storage buildings, swimming pools or tanks, traditional buildings and masonry.
