Infrasense Evaluates the Condition of 5 Missouri Bridge Decks Utilizing Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Supplemented with Other Methods

This past summer, Infrasense conducted non-destructive surveys and reported for 5 bridge decks in Missouri. The project provided the client with a comprehensive set of condition results to facilitate a data-driven approach to programming rehab and maintenance efforts. As a supplement to the GPR surveys, chain drag, coring, and infrared thermography were used on select bridge…

Infrasense Non-Destructively Evaluates Condition of Bridge in Virginia Beach, Virginia with Infrared Thermography and Ground Penetrating Radar

Infrasense completed a vehicle-based inspection of a bridge deck in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The methods of testing included Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Infrared Thermography (IR) and High-Resolution Imaging (HRI). Testing was performed in August and September, with the goal of mapping rebar depth and quantifying areas of concrete deterioration, rebar-level delamination, spalling, and patching. The…

Infrasense and BDI Perform Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Half Cell Potential (HCP) Surveys on Bridge in Norfolk, Virginia

Infrasense and BDI mobilized to Norfolk, Virginia to complete testing on the 1800-foot long bridge deck. The methods of testing included GPR, HCP, coring, and chloride sampling. Testing was performed in September on 14 select panels of the bridge deck, with the goal of identifying rebar depth and spacing, and areas of probable corrosion. The…

Infrasense Performs Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Infrared Thermography (IR) Condition Surveys of the Granby Street Bridge Deck in Norfolk, Virginia

Infrasense mobilized from Boston to Virginia to survey Norfolk’s 64,000 square foot Granby Street Bridge. The GPR survey was done in March, and the IR survey was done in April, when the weather conditions were sufficient for revealing subsurface delaminations. The GPR survey was performed at normal driving speed, and IR was done at a…

Infrasense Pilots Aerial Surveys with Infrared Thermography and High Resolution Visual Methods to Evaluate Bridge Decks

Infrasense recently completed an internal research effort to assess the feasibility and accuracy of aerial imaging for mapping bridge deck conditions. The results of this study provided support for implementation on upcoming projects. The primary advantage of the aerial method is its efficiency. Data can be collected for hundreds of bridge decks in a single…

Idaho Bridge Deck Condition Evaluations as Part of Network Level Survey

As part of the roadway structure database Infrasense developed to assist the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD), we also collected and analyzed data to assess the condition of each bridge deck located on the pavement network. Infrasense used high-speed Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Infrared Thermography (IR), and High-Resolution Video (HRV) testing to create plan view maps…

GPR Condition Surveys of Connecticut Highway Bridge Decks

Infrasense performed high speed scanning on major highway bridges throughout Connecticut, including the Arrigoni Bridge in Middletown, the Sisson Avenue interchange on I-84 in West Hartford, and the complex “Waterbury Stacks” on I-84 in Waterbury. Combined, these projects represent over 1-million square feet of bridge deck. Infrasense collected ground penetrating radar (GPR) data on these…
