Concrete Scanning And Rebar Inspection Using GPR

A General contractor needed to locate the number of structural rebar in concrete columns for an inspection in Miami, Florida. The area that needed to be concrete scanned / x-rayed, using ground penetrating radar, was located in a condominium in Miami, Florida and needed the rebar in the concrete column located. Thus they contacted the specialist in concrete inspection. This application, concrete inspection, is a common job for GPR. GPRS, LLC. in South Florida took the call and mobilized to the site.

On site, GPRS was able to identify the location of the rebar, quickly and accurately. They provided a report explaining the results. GPRS then collaborated with the general contractor, as to the depth and location of the rebar. The advantage to radar compared to X-Ray is that radar can locate rebar, post-tension cables and electrical conduits without dangerous radiation. The project was a success and why radar is “The New Way to X-Ray”.
