Thermal Integrity Profiling (TIP)

ACS, Inc. provides TIP (Thermal Integrity Profiler) services, a non-destructive test, to evaluate concrete quality and detect defects in drilled shafts or slurry walls. The test consists of analyzing data collected from Thermal Cables embedded in the concrete which samples the changing temperature of the surrounding concrete over a specific time period. This analysis provides a plot of radius vs depth which can be evaluated to determine the location of anomalous material.

ACS performs Thermal Integrity Profiling according to the ASTM D7949-14 test standard.

Below is an example of typical results for a TIP log.
