Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method for testing the structural joints in steel buildings is described. The invention provides electromechanical test units (30) fixed at the joints (20) of a building (5) and permanently wired (40) to an ultrasonic test monitor (90). Such a monitor may be one of many that are in communication with, a central monitor and test management computer (100) so as to accomplish wide spread testing of many buildings immediately after an earthquake by remote access.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant de tester des joints de structure dans les bâtiments en acier. L'invention propose des unités de test électrochimique (30) fixées sur les joints (20) d'un bâtiment (5) et connectées en permanence (40) à un écran de test par ultrasons (90), notamment un des nombreux écrans en communication avec un écran central et un ordinateur de gestion de test (100). Ainsi on peut effectuer une grande variété de tests sur un bon nombre de bâtiments immédiatement après un tremblement de terre par accès à distance.
