The testing of concrete by the ultrasonic pulse technique involves measuring the time taken for a pulse of vibrations to pass through a known length of concrete. The path length divided by the time of propagation givcs the pulse velocity, a quantity which is used as a criterion for studying tho quality of the material.
TESTS made on portions of a ten-year-old reinforced concretc building of normal construction during the course of its demolition are briefly described, and the more important results obtained are discussed.
