Research Unit Concrete Damage Assessment by Coda Waves

Condition assessment and surveillance are prerequisites for an efficient maintenance of reinforced concrete structures. Consequently, there is a need for reliable and cost efficient methods which are able to detect defects, monitor the actual condition and predict the future evolution of the condition of reinforced concrete structures. This research unit CoDA (FOR 2825) proposes to make a significant contribution to develop CWI for reinforced concrete structures applicable to field practice in order to monitor and predict reliably and cost efficiently the progress of the condition of the reinforced concrete structure.


Summer School, Zugspitze

19. - 22. Juli 2022

Already for the second time, the research group CoDA came together for an intensive exchange within the framework of a Summer School. For the meeting from July 19 to 22, the research group, as well as guest speakers from Germany and abroad, traveled to the environmental research station Schneefernerhaus on the Zugspitze. Participation via online video conference also enabled participation in virtual form. In addition to status updates of the individual subprojects, the School focused in particular on the transition from the first to the second project phase. The common understanding of goals and tasks was deepened, new project members were introduced and the interaction of the subprojects was highlighted. The program was rounded off by a variety of presentations and a guided tour of the station, which is located at an altitude of 2650 meters.
