NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING OF CONCRETE AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO SPECIFICATIONS

Some of the practical methods for testing concrete non-destructively are already incorporated in British Standards and Recommendations, and further methods are likely to be added to these very soon. In order to appreciate the role of non-destructive testing in specifications it is necessary to consider the essential purpose of testing and, in particular, compliance testing. Some non-destructive methods are suitable for checking concrete at various stages of its manufacture and others for assessing the quality of the end product. This article suggests lines of approach for incorporating these methods in future specifications.
