Summary:
In this investigation an ultrasonic technique and spectral analysis were employed to detect corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete under conditions of accelerated testing. Various properties of a transmitted ultrasonic pulse were determined, and it was concluded that the transfer function provided the most realistic possibility for detection of corrosion and cracking. The most meaningful correlations of the transfer function with corrosion and cracking events were for situations where the temporal variation of the transfer function at the particular frequency was small. The appropriateness of ultrasonic parameters with regard to problems involving corrosion of reinforcing steel is discussed.
