Steel Bridge Cable & Wire Rope Inspection
WavesinSolids specializes in the nondestructive inspection of suspender cables and ropes in cable-stay and suspension bridges, using long range ultrasound (LRUT) and Acoustic Emission (AE) technology. The LRUT technology is applicable for cables up to 4″ in diameter and AE technology is applied where LRUT may not be applicable.
Long range ultrasound is used as a screening tool for oil and natural gas pipelines, bridge pile, and railroad track. The technology provides real-time feedback on structural condition without the need for direct access to the area of interest. Cable inspection typically takes about 20 minutes.

Acoustic Emission technology has been utilized to provide risk-based inspection and maintenance for fracture critical members in infrastructure such as bridges and storage tanks. The technology provides real-time feedback on structural condition without the need for direct access to the area of interest. Click here to obtain our CableAE brochure.
Our American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) certified inspectors have complementary training in fall protection, rope access, highway safety, railway safety, and confined space safety.
