The Schmidt rebound hammer test is an NDT method that measures the hardness of a concrete surface through the use of the rebound principle. The rebound principle states that the amount (distance) that an elastic mass rebounds after impact depends on the hardness of the surface against which the mass strikes. In this gallery, Msc students perform practical NDT inspection of concrete structures using the Schmidt rebound hammer.
Msc students carrying out ultrasonic inspection practicals at the NDT laboratory located at the Institute of Nuclear Science and Technology.
