Abstract:

Information on ultrasonic pulse velocity and compressive strength obtained from test cylinders and cores was used to establish correlation between pulse velocity and compressive strength of the concrete being investigated. This correlation and the pulse velocities obtained from the concrete in question were used to assign compressive strength values to the in-place concrete. It was concluded that ultrasonic testing provides a rapid, economical, and satisfactory means of surveying the quality of the concrete in structures.
