Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for Bridge Inspection in Kansas City

ground penetrating radar for bridge inspection in kansas cityBridges and infrastructure are in serious states of disrepair and deterioration. Current bridge inspection methods are outdated and inaccurate. GPR offers a more accurate method that's very cost-effective. Removal of the asphalt overlay is not required with GPR which is a considerable savings in itself. GPR can identify specific areas that are in need of repair allowing contractors to target those areas efficiently.

Uses:
Accurate Bridge Deck Assessment - locates areas of concrete delamination and steel corrosion Depth of cover to reinforcing steel Asphalt overlay thickness Detection and location of voids

Advantages:
More accurate than half-cell potential and chain drag Shorter downtime on lane closures Full assessment of entire bridge.

Considering the budget cuts that DOTs have faced recently and the deterioration of infrastructure GPR makes incredibly good economic sense and helps keep us all safer.
