Civil Engineering

Regular inspection and maintenance of road and rail networks can cause massive disruption to private and commercial traffic which in turn can lead to revenue loss. For regular inspections, non-destructive test methods such as Ground Penetrating Radar may provide a quick and inexpensive means to establish whether a structure is still in a serviceable condition or not. The results from these investigations can improve the quality of information by eliminating the subjectivity associated with current inspection techniques.
