Join us on Thursday, December 14 (1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST) as Michael P. Schuller of Atkinson-Noland & Associates discusses Nondestructive Evaluation and Testing of Masonry during TMS's continuing 2nd Thursday of the Month Webinar Series. Nondestructive evaluation methods are valuable approaches for evaluating conditions of existing masonry construction, and new construction, without causing damage. Masonry strength can also be measured in place, without resorting to destructive sample removal. Methods discussed during this seminar include mortar hardness testing, pulse velocity measurements, surface penetrating radar, infrared thermography, flatjack testing, and in situ shear tests, with special emphasis on applying these methods for diagnosing both historic and modern masonry construction. Mr. Schuller will also cover the process of planning an investigation following published codes and guidelines. Click here to register.
