Expineer Copr. provides professional engineering and consulting services to a wide range of clients in concrete technology to assess the durability and verify the cause of deterioration of concrete structures. We offer solutions/procedures for the repair and maintenance of the reinforced concrete damaged as a result of:

  • Inadequate design of fresh concrete mix
  • Application of low strength concrete
  • Corrosion of reinforcing steel, alkali aggregate reactions, freezing and thawing damage and sulfate attack

  • Fire and frost exposure
  • Delamination, scaling, spalling, blisters, dusting, pop outs, honeycombing, discoloration and other types of physical and chemical deterioration affecting concrete performance
  • Uncontrolled cracking
  • Premature loss of durability

The detailed condition survey, inspection and deterioration assessment of the reinforced concrete structures such as bridge decks, platforms, ice rinks, parking garages and balconies are managed by Expineer Corp. according to the latest revision of applicable standards and structure inspection/rehabilitation guidelines.

A dedicated team including qualified technicians and technologists assists Expineer Corp. to conduct variety of field investigations and testing including but not limited to:

  • Inspection of bridge decks and components
  • Detailed bridge condition survey as well as evaluation of material conditions and structural integrity
  • Post tensioning tendons ducts inspection
  • Collecting field samples and observe material conditions and structural integrity
  • Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of reinforced concrete structures
  • Assessment of concrete conduits, parking garages, stairways and balconies
  • Field measurements, assess deteriorations and material defects and collecting of samples from the field
  • Concrete coring and asphalt sawn sampling
  • Corrosion potential survey and half-cell contours
  • Cover meter survey
  • Water penetration testing
  • Maturity testing
  • Concrete pull-out tests, LOK testing
  • Evaluation of concrete constituents
  • Sampling plastic concrete
  • Making and curing of concrete compression and flexural strength specimens
  • Concrete slump test
  • Compressive strength test, chloride ion content measurements and air void analysis of hardened concrete specimens and drilled cores.
