A team of researchers from the University of Nottingham, located in the U.K. and in Ningbo, China, recently discovered that the use of non-destructive terrestrial laser scanning can be used to determine the changes in concrete strength after it has been exposed to extreme heat. The laser technology allowed testing to be completed at a safe distance from the affected sites and led researchers to conclude that the technique could be used to both assess the levels of fire-damage and evaluate the residual bearing capacity of the concrete.
