1-hour presentation is a brief introduction to concrete NDT methods. Different NDT methods outlined in ACI 228.2, Report on Nondestructive Test Methods for Evaluation of Concrete Structures, are presented and discussed, focusing on the more popular stress wave methods, such as impact echo, sonic/ultrasonic echo, impulse response, and ultrasonic pulse velocity. Stress wave theory and wave propagation are discussed, in addition to the application to NDT methods. The presentation concludes with a discussion about using NDT methods to estimate concrete strength.
