Comparison of cover meter and ground penetrating radar performance in structural health assessment: case studies

Ksenija Tešić, Ana Baričević, Marijana Serdar

Abstract

An essential step in the condition assessment of reinforced concrete structures and evaluation of the residual capacity is the determination of the arrangement and quantity of reinforcement as well as the geometry of the structural elements. The objective of this paper is to present the fundamentals in the application of two non-destructive methods, cover meter and ground penetrating radar, in the determination of the above structural features. A comparison of the two methods is presented and their capabilities, advantages and disadvantages are shown through nine case studies.

Keywords
reinforced concrete, reinforcement, concrete cover, non-destructive methods, practical application
