Project title:Evaluation of the use of piezoelectric transducers in determining the strength of concrete
Nowadays, concrete is the second most consuming material in construction structures.
Due to the use of this product in the construction industry, concrete testing is a critical issue. By examining the patterns and behaviours of the energy waves, it is possible to find the degree of homogeneity and correlate it with compression strength of this material of structures. Piezoelectric transducers can demonstrate the hardness and uniformity of the sample by measuring how waves propagate.
