Abstract

Structures were assembled of load carrying members capable of safely transferring the superimposed loads to the foundations their main and most looked after property was the strength of the material that they was made of concrete & other integral material used for construction purposes. Thus strength of concrete used was required to be known before starting with any kind of analysis. In the recent past various methods and techniques called as Non-destructive Evaluation (NDE) techniques are being used for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM).The use of the ultrasonic pulse velocity tester was introduced as a tool to monitor basic initial cracking of concrete structures and hence to introduce a threshold limit for possible failure of the structures. Experiments using ultrasonic pulse velocity tester have been carried out, under laboratory conditions, on various concrete specimens loaded in compression up to failure.
