Deterioration of concrete due to corrosion of embedded steel reinforcing bars and prestressing strands represents a significant challenge for inspection and maintenance engineers. Delaminations develop in the concrete manifest as spalling, which further exposes the steel to the corrosive environment and accelerates the deterioration process. The typical method for detecting these delaminations is hammer sounding, which requires hands-on access to the material under inspection. Specialized… CONTINUE READING
