GPR – Concrete Scanning (NDT) – Fundamentals

This one-day course offers both theory and practice in understanding and using GPR to “See Thru” concrete structures and reveal true data for analysis and mark out. We cover theory of GPR for Concrete Scanning and talk of the RADAR science along with correct industry practices.

This course includes GPR theory – concrete scanning, scanning techniques, what affects target detection in concrete, visual inspection, mark out, data interpretation and control, service and maintenance, correct grid survey techniques, data collection. Case Study reviews.
