Civil Engineering

In today's highly competitive world, infrastructures such as buildings, bridges and roads, are drivers of productivity and support economic growth. Infrastructure maintenance is crucial to economic prosperity as well as to the health and safety of the community. Technology that can quickly and accurately identify and pinpoint the location of structural defects can help civil and structural engineers to optimize limited budgets, avert potentially catastrophic accidents while minimizing huge financial human loss.

IDS GeoRadar solutions and services for the Civil Engineering industry are based on two different kinds of technologies that meet the varying needs of our customers.

GPR solutions (Aladdin, C-thrueRIS Hi-BrigHT, RIS One & RIS Plus): Ground penetrating radar is non-destructive and non-invasive technology for condition assessment and inspection of concrete structures. Our systems can use the combination of multiple frequency antennas to provide faster and more accurate inspections. Current applications for structural engineers include locating, spacing and depth of reinforced steel, post tensioning cables or anchors, measuring rebar cover, mapping voids, and  clearing areas prior to cutting, coring and trenching. Thanks to dedicated software our solution are able to export easily 3D model of the data acquired as well as provide a complete condition assessment map directly in the field.

Interferometric Radar solution (IBIS-FM, IBIS-FS, HYDRA-G): The Interferometric Radar technology embedded in our product line allows the remote monitoring of movements of civil structures (such as dams, bridges, towers, buildings) and cut-slopes with sub-millimetre accuracy. Our IBIS and HYDRA radars can be operated remotely and there is no need for direct contact with the target being monitored. IBIS-FM generates a continuous supply of deformation maps as opposed to periodic information provided by current contact sensors, with unprecedented measurement speed and accuracy. IBIS and HYDRA product lines have been specifically designed to address the needs of the civil engineering, geotechnical and mining markets.
