APT International in conjunction with the APT Hawaii‐Pacific Islands Chapter is pleased to announce a workshop on Nondestructive Evaluation Methods for Historic Structures to be held at Honolulu’s Bishop Museum on April 11‐12, 2013.
The Workshop will provide guidance for designers, engineers and contractors in the use of diagnostic non‐destructive testing for historic structures.
The workshop will cover the concepts, theory and applications of non‐destructive test methods and will include hands‐on field sessions demonstrating diagnostic test methods on actual structures, including ground‐penetrating radar, in‐place tests of masonry, infrared thermography, resistance drilling of timber and digital radioscopy. Simpler diagnostic tools will also be available, such as moisture meters and rebound hammers.
This workshop will provide guidance to building stewards, and preservation professionals including architects, engineers, and material conservators.
If you are interested in attending please watch for the event to be posted at
http://www.apti.org/events/ in the near future.
