1.054/1.541 Mechanics and Design of Concrete Structures Spring 2004Prof. Oral Buyukozturk 1 / 1Massachusetts Institute of Technology1.054/1.541 Mechanics and Design of Concrete Structures (3-0-9) Outline 13 Non-destructive Testing for Concrete StructuresDemand for the development of non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques for concrete structures has increased with the growing concern about the deteriorating condition of the World's infrastructure. Efficient and accurate imaging techniques are needed for a reliable evaluation of safety and serviceability of concrete structures. Although, presently, imaging is routinely used in various fields, implementation of these technologies in NDT of civil engineering systems, especially of concrete structures, offers many challenges
