A project is presented on the application of the Miniature Seismic Reflection (MSR) system for the evaluation of concrete dams and the possibility of finding cracks in these structures by seismic nondestructive method. It is shown that MSR system could be capable of evaluating the profile of cracks in concrete and determining the quality of concrete of a dam from one available face. Tests conducted on three concrete slabs are also presented. These tests are shown to help determine the precision of the MSR system's defect location capability with regards to inclined crack detection.
