What is Concrete Scanning?
Concrete scanning with ground penetrating radar (GPR) is used to locate and map the positions of metallic and nonmetallic materials such as rebar, post-tensioning cables, conduit, metal and plastic pipes, electrical cables, and other near-surface anomalies and objects in concrete. The reliability of concrete scanning is greatly improved with the use of ground penetrating radar (GPR). GPR is a radar-based technology that uses antennas to transmit and receive pulses of electromagnetic energy through a medium such as the ground or concrete. These reflected waves are then detected by the radar equipment and allow very accurate determination of the locations of objects within the concrete.
Benefits of Concrete Scanning
There are a variety of benefits of concrete scanning when you choose to have the scan done before you start a project involving concrete. Some of the benefits include the following:
