Paper Title:
Development of Imaging Technique for Evaluating the RC Plate Containing Epoxy-Repaired Delamination
  Abstract

The paper introduces a newly developed imaging technique for evaluating the integrity of concrete structures. The image of normalized amplitude spectra is obtained from B-scan of impact-echo tests. The normalizing process was carried out by obtaining the simulated transfer functions, in which the displacement of R-wave waveform of the impact-echo response multiplying a correcting factor is used as the simulated force-time function. Two specimens, one reinforced and the other unreinforced concrete plates, containing naturally delaminated cracks with crack widths 1 mm, 3 mm and 5 mm were constructed and repaired by injected epoxy into the delaminated cracks. The NDT method was performed on the specimens before and after the repairing work for comparison. The spectral image shows consistent high intensity at the crack-depth-frequency for specimens at crack stages and less in intensity for the ones at repaired stage.
