Discussion Evening on Ultrasonic Testing of Concrete Summary of Introductory Remarks by Dr. R. Jones, of the Road Research Laboratory

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.
