An Evaluation on Low and Middle Strength Concretes Rebound, Upv, and Sonreb Methods
Muhammet Asan, Hadi Abbaszadeh, and Serkan Karatosun
The assessment of existing buildings and civil infrastructures become more important in recent decades. There are some methods, which was used by engineers and researchers; however, industry requires a method which needs less time for processing and cost the minimum available amount until completing process. Non-destructive test methods are an approach which could significantly decrease the amount of time, energy and cost which is used during common (destructive) coring method. There are some methods which was developed and used among NDT methods. Most common methods are Schmidt hammer rebound test and Ultrasonic puls velocity (UPV) method. In this paper, NDT measurements was implemented using these two methods for different range of concrete strength and result was shown by providing correlation of each separately. The combined SonReb method`s correlations was provided also, which shows a significant increase for r-square values.
