Summary

Concrete petrography is an effective technique for investigating the quality, workmanship, durability and defects of concrete. It involves the microscopic examination and description of hardened concrete in the laboratory, using specialised petrological techniques that have been adapted from those used for the study of rocks. One of the benefits of petrography is that the careful examination of a few well-chosen and representative samples can reduce or remove the need for other more expensive test procedures.
