Non-destructive evaluation of reinforced concrete structures: Volume 1: Deterioration processes and standard test methods (Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineering)


Many concrete structures and elements of concrete infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.) have exceeded their original design lives and are deteriorating to an extent where they are becoming dangerous. This breakdown can be internal or not obvious and therefore becomes evident only through detailed testing. Older methods of testing often involved damaging the structure, but Volume One of this two-volume set provides a comprehensive review of the vital subject of the latest non-destructive evaluation of reinforced concrete structures. It provides an overview of deterioration and reviews classic testing methods as well.
