Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) Testing of Concrete

  • Designed for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of Concrete using Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) measurement method.
  • Applications include assessment of properties of concrete such as strength, uniformity, crack depths, etc.
  • Applicable for Ultrasonic NDT of non-homogeneous materials, e.g. Rock, Timber, Ceramics, Composites, Graphite, etc.
  • Reference Standards :

    • BS EN 12504-4:2004,
    • ASTM C597- 71 (re-app. 1979),
    • IS 13311(Part I); 1992.

Ultrasonic Concrete Testing Equipment
Model: CUTE 103

CUTE 103 is a Portable instrument designed with advanced features for Non-destructive Testing (NDT) of concrete quality by Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) measurement method.
It is used to measure the transmission time of ultrasonic pulses in the test specimen, from which the velocity can be computed. A set of UPV readings can be used for further interpretations of structural concrete. The Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) in concrete varies in relation with the Compressive Strength and hence it is widely used for in-situ estimation of concrete quality in structures. Additionally, UPV measurements are used to identify and map voids, honeycombing, cracks, delamination, and other damages in concrete.
Measurement log of max. 1000 readings can be stored in the instrument memory. Each reading is stored with ID no., Date, Time & other parameters set during the test.
The waveform of the received signal can be viewed on the display during carrying out testing on site. This feature can be useful in verifying behaviour of the Ultrasonic Signal in the concrete under test. These observations can help in estimation of compaction and uniformity of the concrete under test.
