Infrasense Performs in Depth Nondestructive Evaluation of Pavement and Bridges Along I-95 in Southern Connecticut

This past summer, Infrasense surveyed 10 miles of interstate pavement and 23 bridge decks with ground penetrating radar. The objectives of the GPR survey included: Locating the lateral and longitudinal extents of the underlying PCC pavement and full-depth asphalt pavements Providing thicknesses of asphalt and PCC pavement layers Locating and quantifying deterioration in the underlying…

Infrasense Carries Out Nondestructive Infrared Evaluation of Bridge Deck in Wisconsin

This past summer, Infrasense surveyed a bridge deck in La Crosse, Wisconsin using infrared for deck delamination detection according to ASTM D 4788 – 03. The equipment setup involved a dedicated vehicle mounted with a high resolution, distance triggered FLIR infrared camera synced up with a high-resolution visual spectrum camera. Both devices capture a whole…

Infrasense Evaluates Condition of Stone Arch Bridge in Orange, Connecticut With Ground Penetrating Radar

In July of 2018, Infrasense mobilized a two-man team to perform a ground-coupled GPR survey of the road surface on a stone arch bridge in Orange, CT.  With the help of a traffic control unit and a local police officer, the condition survey was carried out during overnight hours with minimal disruption to traffic.  The…

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…
