Title: Recommendations for Nondestructive Testing (NDT) of Concrete Components for Performance-Based Specifications

The proposed research will document the availability and the use of concrete nondestructive testing (NDT) tools by transportation agencies; study the critical concrete material properties and suitable acceptance criteria for performance-based concrete material specifications; understand the underlying physics and sensitivity of candidate NDT tools; and validate the most promising NDT tools.

The objectives of the proposed research are to: 1. Document available concrete NDT tools and their use by transportation agencies. 2. Establish critical concrete material properties and suitable acceptance criteria for performance-based concrete material specifications. 3. Understand the underlying physics, reliability, and sensitivity of candidate NDT tools. 4. Validate the most promising NDT tools to demonstrate overall effectiveness
