Abstract:

The report presents the results obtained from the soniscope instrument for use in the nondestructive testing of portland-cement concrete pavements. Essentially, the instrument was tested to determine if consistent velocity measurements could be obtained with the transducers in a position vertical on the prestressed, reinforced, and plain concrete pavements. Also, of interest during the investigation was the maximum distance through portland-cement concrete for which consistent velocity measurements could be obtained. Author
