Non Destructive Testing of Concrete Structures using Neutron Gauge and Ultrasonic Testing

Kenya Vision 2030 aims at transforming Kenya into a newly industrializing, “middle-income country providing a high quality life to all its citizens by the year 2030”.  The 2020 vision for housing and urbanization is “an adequately and decently housed nation in a sustainable environment”.  The Vision also aspires for a country firmly interconnected through a network of roads, railways, ports, airports, water and sanitation facilities, and telecommunications.  Concrete is an integral material used for construction of all these structures.  The quality assurance of these concrete structures during and after the constructers during and after the construction is very important.  Dependable and reliable techniques are required to provide assessments in these structures.  This thesis will begin by highlighting the need for indirect/non-destructive measurements of concrete structures.  It will then proceed to show that a neutron gauge and ultra-sonic can be effectively used together during the construction phase for quality assurance of concrete structures.
