Infrasense recently deployed an air-launched 3D-Radar system on projects in Iowa, Florida, and Virginia. The high-resolution system contains 21 antennas spaced 3 inches apart, and is capable of penetrating up to 5 feet below the surface. Infrasense has used this system to evaluate bridge deck, pavement, and tunnel deck conditions.
This past week, the Infrasense team spent a few days in the White Mountains to share some technical knowledge, explore the snowy outdoors, and prepare for what looks to be another busy year providing clients with accurate and useful NDE testing services. Activities ranged from an overview of our performance in 2016, a refresher…Details
How our high resolution video complements the abilities of Infrared. Infrared data is collected using a FLIR thermographic camera, which measures surface temperature and can provide information regarding subsurface damage in bridge decks. The camera is mounted to a vehicle and data can be collected at highway speeds with clear and accurate results. After surveying…Details
On Thursday, December 1, 2016, Ken Maser, Ph.D., PE, will give a presentation on the state of the practice and the future of GPR and other forms of NDT for both pavement and bridge deck applications. The presentation will be in webinar format, via the Transportation Learning Network. The 1.5-hour webinar will cover the various applications…Details
Here in New England, red and orange leaves have begun to brighten our daily commutes, which have become noticeably darker we inch closer to winter. Fall is here, and so is Back-to-School season, which means our group of summer interns have left some empty desks around our office. Everyone at Infrasense would like to thank…Details
Infrasense just finished some fieldwork in beautiful Idaho, where plains, mountains, dark skies provided a refreshing change of scenery from our Boston office. Here’s a shot of our survey vehicle on a truss bridge (not a structure we were evaluating, just a great photo op!) with the MIlky Way stretching across the sky above us.…Details
After just completing data collection for a group of bridges in Ohio, which included performing underside inspections, I thought it would be a good opportunity to dedicate a little time to one of the more unheralded ways we assess a bridge deck’s condition. Because most of our services are predicated on efficiency and speed, we…Details
Infrasense Provides Pavement Structure Evaluation of 21 Pavement Sections Throughout Fort Hood to Support Falling Weight Deflectometer Testing
Infrasense recently performed subsurface pavement structure investigations on 21 sections of pavement throughout Fort Hood. This project provided pavement structure information to support Falling Weight Deflectometer Testing (FWD) and subsequent rehabilitation planning and design.
