The TDR2-S is a rugged and lightweight system by James Fisher Testing Services used to assess the condition and support of concrete flooring slabs.
The TDR2-S unit uses solid state memory with a user friendly menu system that is easy to navigate for a rapid display of data in an easy to comprehend format. Data is then transferred to the systems TPAP Windows based, analysis software through a USB interface.
Built for security and speed of operation the unit is housed in a tough ABS plastic casing with high quality waterproof connectors, and a handy carry pouch is supplied as standard.
Benefits of the TDR2-S concrete slab integrity tester:
- Rapid mapping of subsurface voids and areas of delamination
- On-site analysis of concrete slab stiffness
- Software for calculating stiffness and mean mobility of slab
- Operates for up to 8 hours on full charge
- Storage for over 700 results
- James Fisher Testing Services' complete test service available
All of our equipment is supplied fully calibrated to UK national standards.

The TPAP-slab software provides an easy to navigate platform for analysing results and reporting.
Slab tests are tabulated and automatically sorted into numerical order, from which test results can be directly accessed. All data can be exported in ASCII format for further analysis and contour plotting.
This frequency response method is based on measuring the harmonic response of a slab to a point of impulse of known magnitude. The mobility of the slab at low frequency and the general form of the response is a direct function of slab support and integrity.
The TDR2-S system excites the slab with a known impulse and measures the response with a velocity transducer.
The signals are processed using a fast fourier transform and analysed for dynamic stiffness and mean mobility. The results can then be mapped out to locate voiding or poor support.
