Non destructive Testing and Evaluation of Civil Engineering Structures Book Review:

The non-destructive evaluation of civil engineering structures in reinforced concrete is becoming an increasingly important issue in this field of engineering. This book proposes innovative ways to deal with this problem, through the characterization of concrete durability indicators by the use of non-destructive techniques. It presents the description of the various non-destructive techniques and their combination for the evaluation of indicators. The processing of data issued from the combination of NDE methods is also illustrated through examples of data fusion methods. The identification of conversion models linking observables, obtained from non-destructive measurements, to concrete durability indicators, as well as the consideration of different sources of variability in the assessment process, are also described. An analysis of in situ applications is carried out in order to highlight the practical aspects of the methodology. At the end of the book the authors provide a methodological guide detailing the proposed non-destructive evaluation methodology of concrete indicators. Presents the latest developments performed in the community of NDT on different aspects Provides a methodology developed in laboratory and transferred onsite for the evaluation of concrete properties which are not usually addressed by NDT methods Includes the use of data fusion for merging the measurements provided by several NDT methods Includes examples of current and potential applications

Non Destructive Evaluation of Reinforced Concrete Structures Book Review:

Many concrete structures and elements of concrete infrastructure (roads, bridges, etc.) have exceeded their original design lives and are deteriorating to an extent where they are becoming dangerous. This breakdown can be internal or not obvious and therefore becomes evident only through detailed testing. Older methods of testing often involved damaging the structure, but this book provides a comprehensive review of the vital subject of the latest non-destructive evaluation of reinforced concrete structures. It provides an overview of deterioration and reviews classic testing methods as well.

Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Book Review:

Steel-reinforced concrete is used ubiquitously as a building material due to its unique combination of the high compressive strength of concrete and the high tensile strength of steel. Therefore, reinforced concrete is an ideal composite material that is used for a wide range of applications in structural engineering such as buildings, bridges, tunnels, harbor quays, foundations, tanks and pipes. To ensure durability of these structures, however, measures must be taken to prevent, diagnose and, if necessary, repair damage to the material especially due to corrosion of the steel reinforcement. The book examines the different aspects of corrosion of steel in concrete, starting from basic and essential mechanisms of the phenomenon, moving up to practical consequences for designers, contractors and owners both for new and existing reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. It covers general aspects of corrosion and protection of reinforcement, forms of attack in the presence of carbonation and chlorides, problems of hydrogen embrittlement as well as techniques of diagnosis, monitoring and repair. This second edition updates the contents with recent findings on the different topics considered and bibliographic references, with particular attention to recent European standards. This book is a self-contained treatment for civil and construction engineers, material scientists, advanced students and architects concerned with the design and maintenance of reinforced concrete structures. Readers will benefit from the knowledge, tools, and methods needed to understand corrosion in reinforced concrete and how to prevent it or keep it within acceptable limits.

Electromagnetic Non Destructive Evaluation XXIII Book Review:

Electromagnetic Non-destructive Evaluation (ENDE) is an invaluable, non-invasive diagnostic tool for the inspection, testing, evaluation and characterization of materials and structures. It has now become indispensible in a number of diverse fields ranging from biomedics to many branches of industry and engineering. This book presents the proceedings of the 24th International Workshop on Electromagnetic Nondestructive Evaluation, held in Chengdu, China from 11 - 14 September 2019. The 38 peer-reviewed and extended contributions included here were selected from 45 original submissions, and are divided into 7 sections: eddy current testing and evaluation; advanced sensors; analytical and numerical modeling; material characterization; inverse problem and signal processing; artificial intelligence in ENDE; and industrial applications of ENDE. The papers cover recent studies concerning the progress and application of electromagnetic (EM) fields in the non-destructive examination of materials and structures, and topics covered include evaluations at a micro-structural level, such as correlating the magnetic properties of a material with its grain structure, and a macroscopic level, such as techniques and applications for EM NDT&E. Recent developments and emerging materials such as advanced EM sensors, multi-physics NDT&E, intelligent data management and maintaining the integrity of structures are also explored. The book provides a current overview of developments in ENDE, and will be of interest to all those working in the field.
