Non- destructive in- situ Measurement of the Thickness & Density of Reinstatements – Final Report
ISBN: 1 84057 138 1
A review was made of NDT methods for the measurement of the thickness and density of reinstatement materials. Ground Penetrating Radar and Nuclear Density Gauges were considered to have considerable potential but are currently expensive and require further development. The most suitable technique currently available is the relatively inexpensive 'Staveley Test Kit' marketed by Errut Products Limited which removes small diameter cores from which the thickness and density of the surfacing material can be determined.
