The principle of the Ultrasonic Thickness Gage is the same as for the UPV test described earlier, except that the system uses higher frequency pulses and smaller transducers. The transmitter and receiver transducers are mounted side-by-side in a common sensing head, which is placed on the accessible surface of the metal to be examined. The emitted pulse propagates through the material to the opposite face, where most of the energy is reflected back to the receiver. The found-trip time for the reflected pulse is measured.

The results include popout of aggregate, delanlination of the concrete, and a cracked, friable surface that eventually causes loss of cross-section due to erosion. Damage is exacerbated by the presence of TIl0isture. 36 CHIMNEY AND STACK INSPECTION GUIDELINES Free chloride ions released by the hydrochloric acid rapidly penetrate the concrete pore structure, and migrate through the material according to the flow of electrical currents generated by potential differences on the reinforcing armature.
