Over 200 RILEM Technical Recommendations have been produced by RILEM Technical Committees. Many of these recommendations have been adopted in research and practice, and are used by international standardisation bodies, as a basis for their work.
All RILEM recommendations reflect the state-of-the-art at the time of publishing. Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

There is an enduring interest in the durability of masonry acting as a composite material especially because a very large proportion of the world’s heritage buildings and civil engineering structures are predominantly constructed from this material. There is a continuing need for information on the best way to maintain a state of good preservation of masonry and on sympathetic techniques for repair and reinstatement of deteriorated masonry.
A major factor in cause of damage to masonry is an elevated moisture content. Before conducting any repairs, it is important to assess the moisture situation of a structure to be able to identify the causes of moisture as well as to determine the moisture content and its distribution rapidly and, whenever possible, non-destructively. This Pulsed RADAR based technique is non-destructive, can be performed from one accessible side of a wall and facilitates determination over wide areas of a structure to give a more comprehensive picture of the state of a building than single – position tests such as drilling / coring.
