Msc Students performing Schmidt rebound hammer NDT practicals


The Schmidt rebound hammer test measures the hardness of a concrete surface through the use of the rebound principle. The rebound principle states that the distance that an elastic mass rebounds after impact depends on the hardness of the surface against which the mass strikes­


The results of the rebound hammer test are used for the following purposes:

  • To assess uniformity of in-situ concrete.
  • To outline regions of poor quality or deteriorated concrete in structures.
  • To indicate strength development in concrete.
