Paper Abstract

The safety of constructed facilities is determined by the condition of the materials and the total system. Deterioration has been occurring at a faster rate than the repair and retrofit activities to remedy the situation. One of the methods to evaluate the existing conditions of a structure is the use of nondestructive testing equipment. There are many types of equipment which require standards for their adoption by the industry as a commercial product. It is imperative that researchers and industry representatives cooperate to prepare and promulgate the required standards.
