This scan took place on a concrete lid overtop an underground storage tank at a sports drink factory in Dallas, TX. The client was required to drill and install several new ports, but the engineers needed to understand the structural integrity of the lid prior to drilling.
Prior to excavation, David Hagenmayer with Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc., was contracted to scan the roughly 30’x8’ lid and determine the existing imbedded reinforcement. David marked out all the steel rebar within the slab and submitted that information to the engineer. After some calculations, the engineer was able to determine the safest areas the new ports could be drilled.
