Infrasense Locates Buried Oil Separator for Surface Drainage System

Infrasense completed a subsurface survey to map the location and position of an oil/water separator and drainage basin structure that had its access lids paved over during construction at the site. The rapid NDE survey consisted of using a portable, GPR Survey System manufactured by GSSI, Inc. to identify and map out the locations so…

Throwback Thursday – 30 Years Ago at Infrasense

Hard to believe this photo is nearly 30 years old – at the time, Infrasense Founder, Dr. Ken Maser was working with a company in Denmark to carry out GPR surveys for pavement thickness! For most of his career, Ken has been at the forefront of GPR for highway infrastructure applications.

Infrasense Completes Multi-Phase Bridge Deck Evaluations in Indiana

In early autumn of 2020, Infrasense headed to the Hoosier state to perform multi-phase condition surveys on 71 bridges decks as part of an Indiana DOT study carried out by Purdue University. A suite of nondestructive testing technologies were deployed across four groups of bridge decks that were selected using different sets of objectives. The…

Infrasense Completes Condition Surveys of 41 Bridge Decks in North Central Wisconsin

Infrasense recently evaluated the condition of 41 bridge decks located in northcentral Wisconsin. The deck evaluations utilized vehicle-based infrared thermography, high-resolution video, and ground penetrating radar. All testing was carried out at a rolling speed, which allowed for spot verification via hammer sounding. Following the field surveys, the data was transferred to Infrasense’s headquarters in…

Throwback Thursday – Infrasense Tests Massachusetts Railroad Tracks in 1996

#TBT In 1996, Infrasense worked with UMass Amherst testing railroad tracks to detect fouling in the ballast and deterioration in the wood ties using ground penetrating radar (GPR). Initial testing was done on a test track at the UMass Amherst lab and then equipment was mounted to a HiRail vehicle for field testing on a stretch…

Infrasense Performs GPR Analysis on 7000 Kilometers of Pavement in Israel

In Spring 2018, Infrasense founder Ken Maser traveled to northern Israel to train a local team on how to collect Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) data for a network-level pavement survey. For the next seven months, the team collected 7000 km of pavement in 2240 management units. The data was continuously uploaded to Infrasense for quality…

Infrasense Performs GPR Survey of Pavement Structure in Naugatuck, Connecticut

Infrasense conducted a nondestructive survey and report on the main travel lanes of a 1-mile section of Rubber Avenue in Naugatuck, CT. The project provided the client with tabular and graphical data sets plotted at a 5-ft interval along the centerline of each travel lane, with each point linked to precise GPS coordinates. These datasets…

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 Survey on Multiple Roadways in Virginia Beach

Infrasense completed a non-destructive survey of two intersecting multilane roadways in Virginia Beach, VA. The survey provided the client with subsurface pavement structure data along all driving lanes, shoulder lines, and turn lanes within the project section. Pavement layer thicknesses were plotted to produce a complete profile of the pavement structure. The profiles and layer…
