Abstract:
This paper describes nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods that can be used in assessing the condition of concrete and masonry materials and components in structures being rehabilitated or preserved. Metal reinforcement is also included. The appropriate use of NDE methods is discussed and a recommended approach to selecting NDE methods for specific situations is given. NDE methods are briefly described based on their principle of operation, information they provide, applications, expertise required to use them, and advantages and limitation to their use.
