E-modulus measurements are carried out extensively in both the concrete industry and the geological world. The method is defined in standards and requires the measurement of the shear wave pulse velocity.
No couplant required
Traditional shear wave transducers required the use of a viscous, sticky coupling gel and it requires at least two people to carry out the measurement. One person needs to manipulate the transducers and the second person needs to locate the arrival of the shear wave signal manually, which is a very subjective operation.
Proceq is proud to introduce the dry point shear wave transducer which solves the difficulties associated with measuring shear wave pulse velocity. The measurement is clean as no couplant is required. Moreover, a single person can carry out the test due to the automatic triggering of the received signal. Therefore the Pundit Dry-Point Shear Wave transducer leads to consistent results.
