Abstract : The report reviews nondestructive testing methods applicable to the construction industry. Established methods and methods still in development are included. Recently developed methods were evaluated from initial reports and prototype applications. A number of the new methods show promise in reducing inspection time or presenting information previously unobtainable. Existing and developing methods are also classified according to the construction materials and operations they test. The report is designed to help not only those interested in the field of nondestructive testing, but also those concerned with specific applications. (Author)
