Abstract: The opening paper of this symposium was dedicated to an overview of the existing state of the practice and the advantages and limitations of non-destructive testing methods for the evaluation of historic materials of construction. The methods discussed in this paper include the state of the practice in visual, rebound, penetration, and ultrasound methods, as well as the physical measurement of cracks, displacements and other properties. The paper discusses some of existing developing practices in advancing technologies such as X-ray and ground penetrating radar.
