Ground Penetrating Radar: Utility/Rebar/Cable Detection and Concrete/Subgrade Debonding
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) profiles acquired during seven separate field investigations are presented. The intent is simply to illustrate that GPR can be used to detect rebar, pre-tensioned tendons, deteriorated and/or detached concrete/fill, buried utilities, underground storage tanks, and buried foundations. The objective of each investigation is summarized, accompanied by brief descriptions of the nature of the target of interest. The application of GPR to the investigations described in this paper is not new. However, the presentation and illustration of multiple applications of this imaging technology in a single manuscript is somewhat unique.
