RE: X ray Rebars

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Sonsure,
 
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has been used as a safer method of detecting/locating rebar in RC structures. You do not require access to both sides of the RC element with GRP.
 
You can rent these units from "Sensors and Software" for about $250 per day, and with a bit of practice you can get some meaningful results. CTL in Chicago have full-service GRP capabilities.
