CI instruments are supplied complete
with software for data transfer and analysis.
This software allows the transfer of data collected by the
instrument to a PC-compatible computer for analysis and archiving.
Data from the loggers is converted into comma- or space-delimited
ASCII files which can be imported into most spreadsheet packages.
The analytical facilities usually present the data in a graphical
format which is easier to understand than the 'raw data' collected
by the instrument.
CI has also developed a program,
which integrates the data collected using our instruments and
provides in-depth corrosion analysis. This program forms an
essential part of the analytical process that helps us to minimise
repair and maintenance costs for our clients. The facilities
Statistical analysis of
concrete cover depth data using predefined criteria;
input and analysis of all
survey data, for example visual defects and chloride content;
contour plotting for
informative visual presentation of results.
CI Advanced Engineering has long
experience in structural and material surveys and in materials
technology. Its expertise is available to clients in a wide variety
of subjects including:
Materials and structures;
Geographical mapping service
Our consultancy service allows
informed decisions to be taken on repair programmes for structures
of all kinds. Considerable cost savings can be realised by setting
priorities for remedial repair work, based on an accurate, informed
assessment of the facts.
Corrosion Courses - One of CI's aims is to educate personnel
involved in assessing structures. We regularly run courses on
reinforcement corrosion with the primary aim of teaching how such
corrosion can be detected and monitored. Monthly courses held in the
heart of London last for one day and allow participants to gain
practical experience in how to identify and assess corrosion damage.
Details of courses and booking forms are available on application.
Other Training Courses
CI also provide courses tailored to
individual needs in other parts of the UK as well as in many
countries overseas. Subjects explored fully include:
In these courses the emphasis is on
the setting up of monitoring systems to meet clients' individual
needs through adapting instrumentation, software and appropriate
