This updated and revised guideline will assist contractors, NDE service providers, owners, design professionals, and material suppliers in the selection of nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods for evaluating the condition of concrete structures. NDE methods can be very useful to perform a condition assessment prior to repairs and to provide quality control and assurance of repairs and long-term performance monitoring. Considerations in planning and executing an NDE program, including correlating with destructive methods, are discussed in the guideline. Guidance, including a brief synopsis of each method, is presented for selecting which NDE methods are appropriate for the concrete property/condition being assessed.
