Structural Engineers have contacted GPRS for many types of inspections to verify proper placement of reinforcement embedded within concrete. If structures are not built within the specifications structural integrity may have imminent failure. In this particular case GPRS was asked to determine if the anchor bolts were properly placed within a cylindrical reinforced column without damaging the preexisting reinforcement. As long as GPRS has direct contact and accessibility to the surface of the concrete, we can determine accurate depths of the rebar and take the bolt measurements to assure proper placement of the bolts without contact of the rebar.
Just like getting a utility locate done before digging it is very important to have an accurate locate before coring or drilling bolts within concrete. Striking a post-tension cable or rebar could cause serious harm or injury as well as substantial structural damage. Experienced General Contractors are aware of the hazards and contact Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. to scan the areas prior to core-drilling or inspect at the aftermath, Mike Kuebbeler-GPRS Oklahoma mobilized to the site in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to perform a method of concrete radar scanning within the suggested areas. Due to the portability of the GPR antenna, the radar imaging was performed quickly and accurately. Since the results were marked directly onto the surface with tape to avoid damage to a finished concrete product the proper calculations could be made. Unlike x-ray/gamma ray, Ground Penetrating Radar is time efficient, non-hazardous and able to show real time results. The energy emitted is equivalent to 1% of a cell phone, therefore, the production of the construction site can continue without any radiation hazards.
