Nondestructive Testing involves the use of methods such as wave propagation, electromagnetism, electrical conductivity, and thermal conductivity to test structural integrity and thereby allow nondestructive assessment of structures and the possibility of structural failures before they occur. The book covers different techniques designed to provide information about the integrity and quality of the material that makes up a deep foundation.

Nondestructive Testing methods are used at all stages of a structure's life - from new construction quality control to residual lifetime prediction, and even during the monitoring of demolition. In addition, Nondestructive Testing is being increasingly specified in deep foundation projects, though often without a good understanding of its limitations and with the result that methods are often misused. In order to be able to specify an appropriate method, or to recognize an inappropriate specification, it is necessary for the engineer, specifier and/or contractor to understand the capabilities and limitations of each of the methods currently in use.

Nondestructive Testing of Deep Foundations:
* Describes the most commonly used deep foundation construction techniques, including typical use of material
* Provides a brief history of the development of commercially available nondestructive methods
* Summarises each method's capabilities and limitations
* Acts as a one stop reference drawing together resources only previously available in conference proceedings and journal papers

This manual will prove to be a welcome addition to the bookshelf of all practitioners in civil/structural and geotechnical engineering and architecture. It will also provide a valuable insight into this highly technical field for university researchers, lecturers and postgraduate students in civil/structural and geotechnical engineering.
