Bacome Kwasizabantu Project

How our PS 50 Multidetector is used by professional Engineers to assess the structural integrity of civil works.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

 

MSW Consulting was requested to carry out construction quality inspection on the newly constructed reinforced concrete reservoir A of Bacome/Kwasizabantu Zone A. 

The inspection was done in two parts;

  • A visual inspection and;
  • Inspection for reinforcing detection.

MSW used the PS50 system on the reservoir wall to determine the cover and bar spacing which was confirmed to be in accordance with to the drawings.

To do this, an engineer from MSW rolled the PS50 detection tool both vertically and horizontally at different locations and recorded the cover measured on the concrete face.

Thereafter engineer joined similar cover readings read in the same plane with a line to form a reinforcing map on the concrete face.

The engineer was thus able to determine the spacing of the bars, which bars were closer to the surface (vertical or horizontal), and what the general cover of the bars were.”
