  • Introduction

    Accurate prediction of concrete compressive strength is imperative for investigating the in-situ concrete quality. To avoid destructive testing, developing reliable predictive models for concrete quality assessment using nondestructive tests (NDTs) is an active area of research. In addition, this area of research has been limited to conventional concrete, where not enough attention has been paid to recent generation of cementitious based materials such as self-consolidating concrete, pervious concrete, high strength concrete, ultra-high performance.

    Aims and Scope:
    Novel NDT methods
    Mechanical properties
    Durability of concrete
    Case studies
    Statistical model development
