Compactness Inspection Methods for Epoxy-Bonded Steel Plates of Bridge Strengthening
Construction quality of epoxy-bonded steel plates is not easy to check for absence of inspection standard in situ. In this paper inspection methods of the critical evaluation factor-bond compactness of epoxy- bonded steel plates, hammer test based multi-level grids and infrared holography, are proposed by theory analysis ,specimen experiments and practical validation in engineering. In final he suggestion on the practical usage of these two methods are also presented.
