Concrete Scanning Using GPR

At a time, when one needs to take into consideration which technique needs to be used for excavation or any other task of drilling or digging the earth, let us have a look at what exactly concrete/structural scanning stands for.

What is Concrete Scanning?

Any type of project that needs cutting, coring or drilling into concrete structures, may get benefited by the application of concrete scanning as it helps to obtain clearance for the project. It also helps identify safer areas for the drilling to be done on the surface.

Following are some of the examples of concrete scanning applications:

  • Structural Steel (Rebar and Ligature Identification)
  • Post Tension cables (PT'S)
  • Pipes and Conduits (Services in Structures)
  • Live Electrical Wiring present in Structures
  • Heating Lines (Concrete Slab Heating)
  • Concrete assessment and structural investigation, such as looking for voids and structural deterioration
  • Masonry Brick Work Investigation

GeoScan's expertise

Let us see how GeoScan can help you out in your need of concrete scanning in Melbourne, Geelong and Regional areas of Victoria.

  • GeoScan executes concrete scanning with its latest ground penetrating radar application
  • We use high frequency 1.6 MHz and 2.3 MHz Antennas
  • We can analyze concrete, brick structures and determine the thickness of asphalt layer
  • We can also penetrate deep into structures such as: floor slabs, suspended floor slab, walls ceilings, concrete roof beams, columns and tunnel structures

The antennas that GeoScan use have a depth penetration range of 300mm-400mm. These antennas are designed to work within a structure. They are also used to identify concrete slab thickness.

Why GeoScan?

How it works?

The most important objective of this concrete scanning application is to accurately locate structures or objects in concrete. It is a non-destructive technique (NDT) that saves time and money of the project executioners. It is also a cost-effective technique which does not need to undergo more conventional processes of hitting or cutting through live electrical wires, post tension cables, or any sort of service in the structure frame work.
