    Abstract

    Realistic field-test protocols and equipment, which in a rational manner, combine the results from laboratory and field tests with those used for quality control during construction, have been developed. Seismic nondestructive testing technology has been used for this purpose. Simple laboratory tests that are compatible with the field tests have been recommended. All these tests have several features in common. They can be performed rapidly (less than 3 min.), and their data reduction processes are simple and almost instantaneous.
