CAPO Testing (Cut and Pull Out), determines the compression in situ strength of concrete in existing structures. CAPO experiment estimates the power necessary for the pullout from a concrete specimen/structure of an integrated metal insert.
Typical apps for the CAPO-TEST include:
? Quality assurance tests on a completed building
? Verification of in-place strength when standard-curated specific resistance does not fulfill approval requirements.
? Estimating power of concrete in current buildings.
? Evaluation of fire-damaged buildings.
The health assessment and assessment of risks of current buildings are increasingly needed and the in-situ performance of structural systems meets the design criteria. To evaluate RCC structures for on-site strength, integrity and corrosion analysis for reinforcement bars Avantech Engineering Consortium offers a broad spectrum of test services that meet Indian and/or international standards and codes.
In-Situ Compressive Strength (design strength, and existing structures)
Cut & Pull Out (CAPO) is a secure exam technique for determining the power of compressive RCC constructions on the ground. The findings of the CAPO exam are discovered to be within 8% of the standard method outcomes.
CAPO test is carried out by the guidelines laid out in ASTM C900, BS-1881: Part 207 and EN-12504-3.
