Hi,

I am working on a blog post for a report on a building tear-down, and I came across this term. I am not sure what it is referring to..I know it is a type of testing procedure, but am not sure which one.

Sample text:

Beprobung des Mauerwerkes und der Deckenelemente mittels Kernbohrungen und ***Stemmproben*** zur Feststellung des genauen Aufbaus und zur Überprüfung eines möglichen Vorkommens zum Beispiel von Dampfsperren oder Isolierungen.


Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
