Determination of Surface Roughness Parameters by Optical Profilometry and Sand Patch Test
In cases when two concrete parts are cast against in different times are not connected by dowels, main contributors to the resistance are cohesion and friction. Shear resistance of the interface is highly dependent on surface treatment and its roughness. In this paper, besides the review of available methods of surface roughness determination, the optical profilometry will be introduced and described. Optical profilometry represents non-contact and non-destructive method for characterizing surface topography. Furthermore, results obtained by abovementioned method will be compared with Sand Patch Test, in order to determine its usability and limitations.
