    Abstract

    Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of masonry has been, to date, essentially an adaptation of available methods which have been used for evaluation of concrete. There has been an increasing amount of study and application of these methods in recent years. Limitations on the efficiency and utility of these methods has been observed. Improved methods of NDE of masonry are needed. Recent NDE developments in the medical, aerospace and other fields should be studied for their application to masonry.
