Summary and Info
Testing in Concrete Structures provides a comprehensive overview of the techniques involved in testing concrete in structures. It discusses both established techniques and new methods, showing potential for future development, and documents them with illustrative examples. Topics which have been expanded are those where the most significant advances have taken place, for example integrity assessment, sub-surface radar, corrosion assessment and localized dynamic response tests. The fourth edition also covers the new trends in equipment and procedures, such as the continuation of general moves to automate test methods and developments in digital technology and the growing importance of performance monitoring, and includes new and updated references to standards. The non-specialist civil engineer involved in assessment, repair or maintenance of concrete structures will find this a thorough update of the third edition.
