This paper summarizes the test recommendations for selected non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques as developed by members of the RILEM Technical Committee AST 215 "In situ assessment of structural timber". The recommendations cover visual inspection, moisture content determination, species identification, digital radioscopy, and ground penetrating radar. The paper includes a matrix of common NDT to assess structural timber. The discussion of each technique is intended to provide users with sufficient information to understand the theoretical basis, typical equipment set up, and basic capabilities and limitations.
