    Abstract

    Numerous methods are available to measure the permeation properties of concrete, which can be classified in terms of the diffusion, absorption and permeability properties. The results from these tests are generally used to infer 'quality' or relative durability. Some of these tests involve the laboratory assessment of a sample of concrete extracted from the structure. However, this Technical Note concentrates on the alternative methods appropriate for use on site. Guidance is given on the choice of an appropriate test method, which in most practical situations depends on the predominant mechanism acting on the concrete under consideration.
