Sonic Logging in Azerbaijan - July 2012
Azerkorpu are one of the largest civil engineering contractors in Azerbaijan, and are currently constructing stations for the extended Baku metro system. Construction involves installing deep diaphragm wall units around the station perimeter and the stringent Korean specification calls for sonic logging on a high percentage of panels to confirm integrity over the full depth and section.
Azerkorpu have chosen the popular SCXT2000 sonic logging system to carry out this work and Testconsult Director Huw Williams was on hand to carry out training during the initial testing phase of the work, to demonstrate the equipment to site engineers. The SCXT2000 can be controlled either by the rugged computer supplied as standard with the equipment or indirectly at the logging winch. 2D & 3D tomography also supplied as standard with the equipment enable the user to quickly identify areas of low modulus concrete or voiding, if they arise.
