Nuclear Density Meters - what you need to know


This interactive classroom based course is aimed at anyone who is using the Nuclear Density Metre (NDM), or whose work may be affected by the NDM. In this half day course we cover all you need to know about the NDM.  You will also learn some handy tricks about best practice use, storage and transportation. 

These are radioactive devices at the end of the day, so there are some rules and regulations around their use, storage and transport. 

We will also cover off many other technical aspects of Nuclear Density Metre (NDM) usage, troubleshooting, and issues with laboratory benchmark tests (e.g. Proctor Curves, Marshall and Voidless Density tests).
