QUALITY CONTROL OF STRUCTURES

CONTROLE DE QUALITE DES OUVRAGES

THE OBJECT OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP BETTER METHODS OF OBSERVATION DURING THE CONSTRUCTION OF STRUCTURES. THE RESEARCH CARRIED OUT GAVE RESULTS ON THE SETTING UP OF CONTROL PLANS (PER TYPE OF STRUCTURE), ON THE APPLICATION OF INTEGRATED CONTROL AND DIMENSIONAL CONTROL OF STRUCTURES, AND ON THE AWARENESS OF FOREMEN AND THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE REPRESENTATIVENESS OF SAMPLES. IN 1979 IT IS ENVISAGED: TO EXPERIMENT WITH CONTROL PLANS AND COST EVALUATION; TO IMPLEMENT INTEGRATED CONTROL FOR EVALUATING THE QUALITY OF MIXING PLANTS AND TO USE DATA FOR SUMMARIZING THE APPLICATION CHARACTERISTICS; TO CONTINUE TO PROMOTE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF FOREMEN TO STUDY THE REPRESENTATIVENESS OF SAMPLES, DIMENSIONAL CONTROLS AND SURFACING OF BRIDGE DECKS.
