FDH Infrastructure Services (formerly FDH Velocitel) is a pioneer in the nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of critical structures. The firm’s research and development of electromagnetic and dispersive wave propagation (DWP) techniques have led to the award of three U.S. patents and multiple proprietary analysis techniques. FDH’s exclusive nondestructive test (NDT) methods have been applied to telecommunication towers and their foundations, as well as to transmission towers, water tanks, bridges, dams, levees, and pipelines.
FDH’s innovative NDT methods are grounded in a robust R&D program that is client driven and service focused. The physical epicenter of the R&D program is the structures laboratory, based in the firm’s Raleigh, NC, office. Used for both training and investigation, this 2,500-square-foot indoor/outdoor facility helps the firm’s PhD-level researchers not only refine and validate existing NDT technologies used by FDH field technicians, but also develop and deploy new NDT methods that support the needs of FDH clients to solve unique problems in civil and industrial infrastructure.
FDH Infrastructure Services is recognized as a global leader in nondestructive investigation methods and offers NDE capabilities that few firms possess.
