The use of the ultrasonic pulse velocity tester is introduced as a tool to monitor basic initial cracking of concrete structures and hence to introduce a threshold limit for possible failure of the structures. Experiments using ultrasonic pulse velocity tester have been carried out, under laboratory conditions, on various concrete specimens loaded in compression up to failure. Special plots, showing the relation between the velocity through concrete and the stress during loading, have been introduced. Also, stress–strain measurements have been carried out in order to obtain the corresponding strains. Results showed that severe cracking occurred at a stress level of about 85% of the rupture load. The average velocity at this critical limit was about 94% of the initial velocity and the corresponding strain was in the range of 0.0015 to 0.0021. The sum of the crack widths has been estimated using special relations and measurements. This value that corresponds to the 94% relative velocity was between 5.2 and 6.8 mm.
