Özet

The impact-echo method has been successfully applied to identify defects inside concrete. In addition, to detect ungrouted tendon ducts in a large concrete slab, a scanning impact-echo technique is developed. However, since resonant frequencies in the spectrum responsible for the travel paths via defects are only taken into account, the method could lead to erroneous results due to complicated spectra obtained in the tests. Consequently, Stack Imaging of spectral amplitudes Based on Impact-Echo (SIBIE) procedure has been developed to improve the data interpretation.
