There are several methods for determination of the setting and early hardening in the cementitious composites. The most common method is using the Vicat apparatus. The major disadvantage of this method is that it is invasive and therefore the measurement results exhibit high variability. The paper deals with the continual monitoring of the process of setting and early hardening of a cement paste using the ultrasonic measurement. The innovative method of using the ultrasonic NDT method for determination of the setting times of cement paste is presented in the paper.
