Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Digital Concerete specializes in the latest Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology. GPR can be utilized to image both concrete slabs and walls, and can accurately locate metallic and non-metallic reinforcement and pipes in and below concrete slabs.

The NDT team at DCSS can help you locate and map the positions of rebar, Post-Tensioned cables, conduit, voids, reinforcing steel, and other near-surface anomalies. We give you a safe place to drill – keeping your project safe, on budget and on schedule.

GPR is a tool that Digital Concrete uses on a daily basis. GPR displays its results as an image which shows how the Post-Tensioned cables spread out near their anchorage zone.

In addition, GPR can detect flaws in concrete structures. We have experience in detecting the absence of grout in concrete block walls, and missing rebar. We can verify slab thickness and determine the depth of material cover on reinforcement.

GPR technology uses high frequency electromagnetic waves. The wavelength is typically between 400 MHz – 2.6 GHz. These reflected waves are then detected by the radar equipment and allow us to determine the locations of objects within the concrete.

We’ve been using GPR technology since 1997 and are leaders in the field of concrete scanning. DCSS is always interested in using the latest technology in order to solve today’s problems, and are one of the world’s foremost experts in the application of the Ground Penetrating Radar in the construction environment.
