This thesis describes the investigation of a non-destructive test method for integrity assessment of rock bolts using the resonance spectroscopy method. Although other methods exists these all present certain limitations. Initial experimental investigations included the assessment of a number of excitation mechanisms, namely, hammer tests, chirp tests and swept sine tests.
