SHRP2 R06D Research to Identify, Validate, and Implement Methods Capable of Detecting Pavement Delamination

Infrasense contributed to the original research efforts for the SHRP2 project titled, “Advanced Methods to Identify Pavement Delamination (R06D)”. The objective of this project was to identify and validate nondestructive testing technologies that can detect delamination in hot-mix asphalt (HMA), to operate at a reasonable travel speed, and cover a full lane width. Most recently,…

Pavement Structure Evaluations for the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT)

Infrasense has performed pavement structure evaluations for the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT). Since 2015, ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys totaling over 480 lane-miles were performed on roads in both the Metro and Northeast regions. For each project, preliminary GPR results were used to select cores to be used for calibration and confirmation of the…

Condition Assessment of 181 Bridge Decks in Minnesota’s Metro, Southeast, and Northeast Regions

Infrasense has surveyed 181 decks throughout Minnesota’s Metro district and Districts 1 and 6 using Infrared Thermography (IR) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), accompanied by underside visual inspections. GPR data was carried out at highway speeds with no disruption to traffic, and IR data was collected using a rolling lane closure. All traffic control was…
