With the recent incidents involving concrete silos, many companies are now implementing more regular and thorough inspections of existing silos. ACS has a solution specifically catered for silo inspections and provides the Engineer with much more valuable information on the condition of the silo than conventional visual inspection methods.Using high definition 3D Laser Scanning we are able to provide the client with the following:
-3D pointcloud data highlighting breakages, protrusions and cracks in the concrete liner of the silo.
The scanned pointcloud also allow as to quantify and dimension these anomalies without having to
erect scaffolding or to take manual measurements.
-The pointcloud can be processed to produce a rolled out flattened as-is surface of the concrete silo, which can then
be used as a basis for deflection and structural analysis.
-Monitoring of silo movements and deflection. Regular scans of a silo over time can be used to detect and react on
any changes taking place, thereby reducing risks and incidents and expanding the lifetime of the structure.
