PENETRATING RADAR SERVICES

What is GPR?

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) uses a high-frequency radio signal that is transmitted into the ground and reflected signals are returned to the receiver and stored on digital media. The computer measures the time taken for a pulse to travel to and from the target, which indicates its depth and location. The reflected signals are then interpreted by the system and displayed on the system's LCD panel.

GPR: The Basics

EnviroSCAN takes a highly-technical approach to assess and evaluate the integrity of all types of surfaces. Today, many highway professionals, transportation departments and engineering firms are incorporating non-destructive technologies such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) into the quality control/quality assurance and inspection process to supplement traditional techniques to evaluate roads and bridges.

GPR: The Benefits

  • Non-destructive and non-disruptive technology
  • Highly cost-effective and efficient
  • Unparalleled accuracy

Did You Know?

GPR waves travel through many different materials. Concrete, fill material, debris and varying amounts of water saturation all have different dielectric and conductive properties that can affect GPR waves. This is why we use proprietary software and our experience to analyze and interpret the data for reporting.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND GPR

EnviroLift’s GSSI non destructive ground penetrating radar is a solution that provides a cost effective method to examine the subsurface conditions of roads and bridges and deliver insights into deterioration, delamination, corrosion and other factors that may otherwise remain undetected. It reveals subsurface anomalies at the inception stage before they materialize into concerns. Traditionally, density has been measured using cores or nuclear density gauges. These techniques rely on widely-spaced sampling at random locations and assumes all data between samples is consistent. Trust the science behind GPR to receive 100% accurate coverage and reveal potential patterns of low density.
