Title

Comparison of a Ground-Coupled and an Air-Launched Ground Penetrating Radar System for the Bridge Deck Evaluation

Abstract

Several bridge decks were investigated using a ground-coupled and an air-launched ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems with a goal of comparison of the systems to effectively and accurately evaluate bridge decks. Study demonstrated the ability of the air-launched GPR system to rapidly acquire data with the quality comparable to the data acquired with ground-coupled based GPR systems. Also, results of the study show the air-launched GPR system can be effectively used for a quick bridge deck condition evaluation, including estimation of deterioration level.
