Özet

This study presents a practical nondestructive testing (NDT) method: the nail penetration test (NPT). The major tools of the test technique are a gas nailer with 130 J (95.88 ft-lbf) power, concrete nails, and a gas nailer cell. The study covers three different limestone aggregate types. Six concrete mixtures were prepared from each aggregate type. Five nail shots were performed on each concrete mixture (or grade) and the average value was obtained.
