Long-Span Floors

CGA has a long history with long-span floors, primarily for fabs and flat-panel facilities, and mostly in Asia.  These have unique dynamic features, and behave differently under localized excitation from loading such as footfall.  As interest grows in non-semiconductor applications of these structures, where footfall takes on a greater buy soma london importance (since heavy […]...

Voids beneath concrete slabs

CGA has seen an upturn in work related to non-destructive hammer testing of concrete slabs-on-grade, which documents the presence or absence of voids beneath the slab.  (This can be due to either localized settlement or slab curling.)  An article on this was published by several staff members in the July 2009 issue of Concrete International, […]...
