In the recent studies of concrete surface crack non-destructive test (NDT), the environmental factors are seldom to be taken into assessment consideration using Rayleigh wave (R-wave) propagation method. Dust, fine sand or water that accumulated in the concrete surface cracks might potentially affect the behaviour of R-wave when it propagated through the cracks. In this study, the effects of filling conditions in concrete surface crack to the properties of R-wave were examined. The targeted parameters that used for studying the behaviour of R-wave are the arrival time of R-wave and its corresponding amplitude. Numerical simulations were conducted for determining the changes of R-wave amplitudes and arrival time when it propagated through a concrete model with a surface crack which containing various filling conditions. Sand and charcoal powder were the materials used for filling the concrete cracks. The results of numerical simulations were then justified by experimental measurements. The comparison between the results of numerical simulation and experimental measurement generated a conclusion where R-wave arrival time and its corresponding amplitude is independent from the predefined filling conditions of concrete surface crack.
