    Increasingly more non-destructive testing methods are being developed in a civil engineering context, but many of them cannot be applied when only one surface of the structure can be accessed. In order to measure moisture ...
  • Measurement of mortar permittivity during setting using a coplanar waveguide 

    Juan Garcia, Pablo; Torrents Dolz, Josep M. (2010-03)
    Article
    Accés obert
    A sensor based on a coplanar waveguide structure was designed to perform non-destructive tests for material characterization in which the measurement can be done only on one side of the sample. The measurements were compared ...
  • Surveillance of steel fibre reinforced concrete slabs measured with an open-ended coaxial probe
