Impact Echo (IE) investigations are performed to assess the condition or thickness of slabs, beams, columns, walls, pavements, runways, tunnels, and dams.


The Impact Echo (IE) system is designed to determine the condition and thickness of concrete, wood, stone, and masonry structural members when voids, honeycomb, and/or cracks are suspected. IE investigations can also be performed to predict the strength of early age concrete if the member thickness is known. Lastly, the IE method will provide information on the depth of a flaw or defect, in addition to mapping its lateral location and extent. An advantage of the IE method over the Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) method is that only one side of the structure needs to be accessible for testing.

Olson sells three platforms that can use the Impact Echo principle as shown in the chart below. All of Olson's Concrete Thickness Gauges (CTG) are implicity based on the IE principle, whereas the IE is sold as an add-on for the NDE 360 and Freedom Data platforms.

The Impact Echo Scanner uses the IE principle, but is sold only to US Government agencies and Universities, as well as approved International sales. It is available on a consulting basis through our sister company, Olson Engineering.
