How long does it take for a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to scan ground?

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a non-destructive geophysical technique based on the propagation and reflection of electromagnetic waves from 20 MHz to 3 GHz. It is sensitive to changes in the electromagnetic properties of the medium (permittivity, conductivity and magnetic susceptibility). Investigations are usually carried out by moving the antenna on the surface, with or without contact with the ground. Measurements are taken at regular intervals, which allows a quick image of the basement structure.

georadar in underground locations

What is the role of georadar in underground locations?

Ground Entrance (RPS) or Ground Entering Radar (GPR) first appeared around the turn of the twentieth century, where they were used as non-destructive devices in photographing soil and storm cellars. This framework’s first application occured in 1910, when it was used to locate buried targets – and it has evolved since then! Fast forward to the 1970s, ground radar saw a fast rise within the military space, particularly in the discovery of anti-personnel mines.

corrosion detection

What is the best method to detect corrosion?

Corrosion can be one of the greatest threats to the longevity of equipment. Without proper monitoring, large industrial assets such as power lines or pipelines can wear out slowly due to corrosion, causing leaks or failures and contributing to poor performance and reliability. In extreme cases, if corrosion is not monitored, it can result in complete equipment failure, posing risks to personnel safety, huge equipment costs and subsequent environmental damage.

Is GPR Effective?

GPR, or ground-penetrating radar, uses radio waves to capture images of embedded objects. It is a non-intrusive detection method that allows technicians to locate underground utilities and other objects such as live wires, post-tension cables, utilities, conduits, pipes, and voids. By identifying such objects before excavating, one can avoid potential damage and the associated safety risks and cost burdens. The all-important question is, is GPR effective? In short, yes, it is highly effective. Let’s explore how GPR can profoundly benefit your project.

underground detection by GPR

The importance of underground location and detection by GPR 

If you are building a new office, you should get an underground duct detection system. It gives you a rough idea of how easy or difficult it is to carry out a particular project in that area.

Using the most advanced technology available (GPR), it shows a colour-coded map of the area. This reduces the burden of huge excavations and simplifies your work. It is highly recommended to use the GPR for underground infrastructure detection, whether it is a large or small project.

Top Advantages of GPR Concrete Scanning

What are the benefits of concrete scanning?

If any task is carried out where concrete is involved where it is necessary to cut/core the concrete, then performing concrete scanning beforehand is the right thing to do. Cutting/coring concrete, generally a time-consuming procedure with risks involved, unveils hidden embedded elements within the material.

Here, we will examine the benefits of concrete scanning, which helps in tracing conduits, cables, voids, and utilities present inside the concrete. We will also examine how GPR concrete scanning can help you lower expenses, reduce risks, and protect the reputation of your business.
