Longitudinal guided waves confined in radius filler regions of composite joints.
Semi-analytical finite element simulations are used to demonstrate the existence of a longitudinal guided ultrasonic mode confined or trapped in the Noodle regions, and reveal that this mode has attractive properties for rapid screening of Noodle joints, including strong energy concentration, low dispersion, and attenuation.

Damage detection in rebar-reinforced concrete beams based on time reversal of guided waves
The propagation properties of ultrasonic waves in rebar-reinforced concrete beams were investigated and their ability for damage identification was demonstrated. Rectangular piezoelectric ceramics
Comparison between different techniques for monitoring setting and hardening of concrete
Three different techniques to study the evolution of the setting and the hardening of concrete are compared: (1) ultrasonic monitoring using the FreshCon system, (2) a resistivity method and (3) the
