Paper Abstract

Despite careful detailed planning of reinforced concrete structures, technical installations must subsequently be anchored in the concrete. The longer the time between the planning and completion of the structure, the greater is the expense and the more dependent the structure is on the further technical development of the installation. In power station construction, for example, one expects to have to install several hundred thousand anchorages for each station. The reinforcing rods should not be damaged during the necessary drilling work. Each damaged rod must be checked to ensure that the safe loadbearing properties of the structure are not impaired. A method which shows the exact position of the reinforcement in the concrete, considerably reduces the incidental and consequential costs of drilling work (Figure 1).
