The non destructive test on fresh concrete is done using:

Solution:

Pull out Test
The test measures the force required to pull out a previously cast in steel insert with an embedded enlarged end in the concrete. Thus, it is a type of destructible test.
Ultrasonic Test
An ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) test is an in-situ, nondestructive test to check the quality of concrete. In this test, the strength and quality of concrete is assessed by measuring the velocity of an ultrasonic pulse passing through a concrete structure.
Radioactive methods of testing concrete can be used to detect the location of reinforcement, measure density and perhaps establish whether honeycombing has occurred in structural concrete units. It is a non-destructible test and is used for hardened concrete rather for fresh concrete.
