Paper Title:
Modified Surface Wave Velocity Measurement Technique in Concrete
  Abstract

A modified one-sided measurement technique is proposed for Rayleigh wave (R-wave) velocity measurement in concrete. In this study, the maximum energy arrival concept is adopted to determine the wave velocity by employing its continuous wavelet transform. Experimental study was performed to show the effectiveness of the proposed method. Results reveal that the proposed method can be effectively used to measure the R-wave velocity in concrete structures.
