Testing of Concrete in Structures


Testing of Concrete in Structures

Interest in testing of hardened concrete in-situ has increased considerably since the
1960s, and significant advances have been made in techniques, equipment, and
methods of application since publication of the first edition of this book in 1982.
This has largely been a result of the growing number of concrete structures,
especially those of recent origin, that have been showing signs of deterioration.

Changes in cement manufacture, increased use of cement replacements and
admixtures, and a decline in standards of workmanship and construction supervision
have all been blamed. Particular attention has thus been paid to development of test
methods which are related to durability performance and integrity.
