PUNDIT SETS THE PACE. CUBE TEST BARRIER COULD BE PENETRATED BY A NEW ULTRASONIC CONCRETE TESTER

THE APPARATUS DESCRIBED, NAMED PUNDIT, IS A PORTABLE ULTRASONIC NON-DESTRUCTIVE DIGITAL INDICATING TESTER. IT WEIGHS ABOUT 5KG AND CAN MEASURE THE TRANSIT TIME (TO WITHIN PLUS OR MINUS 1/2 MICRO SECOND) OF AN ULTRASONIC PULSE THROUGH CONCRETE FROM 100 MM TO 10 M THICK. RECENT RESEARCH AT THE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, LONDON, HAS SHOWN THE SUPERIORITY OF ULTRASONIC TESTING OVER CUBE TESTING WHEN APPLIED TO THE STRENGTH ASSESSMENT OF REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS. /RRL/
