Abstract

"The present study is comprised of two separate GPR case studies on a bridge deck and a concrete pavement respectively. These typical concrete structures were investigated using GPR with several objectives: 1) to find the reason of discrepancies between GPR results and the results of the other tests through bridge deck inspection, 2) to investigate the bridge deck under various weather conditions, 3) to determine the relative spatial locations of the imbedded dowel bars in the new concrete pavement, and finally 4) to evaluate the present capabilities of GPR technology including survey scheme and analysis through these two case studies."--Abstract, page iii.
