EQUIPMENT USED BY THE LTMS FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF THICKNESSES

EQUIPO LTMS PARA LA MEDIDA DE ESPESORES

Measurement equipment is described which was used by the LTMS during the years 1972 and 1973 and which may be applied to the non-destructive surveillance of units of work or construction elements. An immediate use, which may be the most important one, consists in replacing the operation of the extraction of cylindrical cores by boring, in cases where such an operation could prove difficult, inadequate or excessively costly, and particularly where it is simply a question of measuring thicknesses. This device may be applied to the measurement of road thicknesses (layers of pavements or embankments), measurement of loose material fill dams (surveillance of thickness of waterproof wall), etc. The measurements may be made either in a discrete or continuous fashion. /TRRL/
