Understanding Material Conditions for Long-term Durability
Non-Destructive Testing & Evaluation
We provide service for evaluating materials on the structure in service using various nondestructive evaluation process. We strive to evaluate the condition of the structure using the best possible techniques.
- We use Half-Cell Potential to detect and determine the level of corrosion or corrosion potential of steel bars within concrete.
- Our Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system can provide 3D pseudo subsurface images revealing the imperfection and location of steel bars in the reinforced concrete structures.
- We use acoustic, ultrasonic, and thermal methods to detect and identify damages in the structures
- We utilize Digital Image Correlation (DIC) techniques to measure deflection and identify defect in the structures.
Service Life Analysis
Service life assessment is critical for managing our deteriorating infrastructure. Echem utilizes various cutting-edge techniques to asses the service life of the structures.
Structural Health Monitoring
Our structural health monitoring services include long term monitoring for various infrastructure using traditional and innovative techniques. Our health monitoring services include corrosion monitoring, deformation, and deflection monitoring, and crack monitoring. Echem is developing innovative solutions for fatigue crack monitoring and video-based structural health monitoring. Let us monitor your structure – we will forecast the health of your structure at regular intervals.
Chemical & Materials Testing
Deteration of your infrastructure can be accelerated due to the presence of specific materials and environmental factors. Our forensic investigation team is equipped with conducting chemical testing to detect and quantify chemicals responsible for accelerating corrosion.
Maintenance, Repair & Rehabilitation [MR&R]
Echem offers corrosion maintenance on budget. Our team consists of experts in the field of Cathodic Protection (CP) who develops innovative solutions for corrosion issues. We also provide service to oversee repairs and rehabilitate corrosion and fatigue damaged structures.
