This paper proposes a novel and effective method in the field of Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE). Traditional ultrasonic computerized tomography (UCT) is a heavy task to detect the damages in the object for the numerous measuring times and the huge cost of manual labor. However, utilizing the method proposed in this paper can effectively overcome this great disadvantage, the essence of the application of Compressive Sampling(CS) in the detection of the object is to selectively choose a small quantity of measuring path in the huge number of total measurements. Due to the sparsity of damages in concrete structure, the usage of CS is available. Firstly, we divide the object entirely into numerous grids in order to image the internal situation of the object respectively. Secondly, a measurement matrix to massively decline the quantity of the measuring time should be computed. Thirdly, the travel time of each path we selected according to the matrix should be acquired, utilizing these travel time by adopting the l1-minimization program can we consequently obtained the slowness of the elements inside the object, thus reconstruct the internal situation of the object clearly and effectively. Furthermore, by applying this method we proposed in this paper into the simulation we can not only determine the damage location but also figure the size of it out. Because of the massive decline of the measuring times and accurate reconstruction, we substantiate CS method applied into the monitoring of concrete structure proves to be a shortcut in the field of NDE.
