2D GPR Profile

Concrete Slab & Structure Scanning

The MALÅ CX ground penetrating radar (GPR) concrete scanning system is designed for the non-destructive investigation and imaging of concrete and other man-made structures.

Construction professionals involved in the cutting, coring or drilling of concrete structure require a safe and reliable means of inspecting work areas to locate and identify hidden features that could cause damage to machinery, or pose a danger to the operator or the structure itself during these activities.

Applications include:

Identification & positioning or reinforcing | Concrete thickness | Void detection | Ground beam Identification | Post-Tension cable locating | Condition assessment | Determining concrete cover | Depth on new structures | Measurement of existing asphalt thickness | QA of new asphalt thickness | Structure inspection | Void detection and location.

Position core hole locations at a specified diameter away from any obstructions

MALA CX12 GPR Concrete Scanner

The MALÅ CX ground penetrating radar (GPR) system allows users to scan concrete structure simply and safely and present GPR data clearly for real-time and in-the-box data acquisition, display and analysis. In most cases, scanning is performed in straight lines and in perpendicular directions and the data displays reflections which reveal the features within a concrete structure.

Create a 3D picture of the subsurface

In an area where quite detailed concrete investigation is required, the MALÅ CX ground penetrating radar (GPR) system has the ability to create a 3D picture of the subsurface. Users collect a number of perpendicular profiles following the MALA grid map and the intuitive steps in the software.

Processing of this collected data is performed in real-time, in the-the-box, and presents a ’top-down’ and cross sectional view of the area under investigation. There are a number of features within this processed 3D ground penetrating radar (GPR) data which allows users to look down \’though\’ the slab and to identify features at different depths and running in different directions.

A very useful aspect of the 3D projects is the ability to select a ’virtual core hole’ and find a clear space within the investigated area, that can be marked on the ground surface and approved for penetrations.

Concrete Scanning Equipment

Planning for Scanning Concrete Structures

Concrete scanning is an important part of concrete cutting, coring, As-built verification of structures or otherwise working with existing concrete builds. It provides an easy-to-manage means of scanning concrete to locate steel reinforcement, post-tension cables, locations of footings/ground beams and embedded conduits and services. Using this kind of subsurface locating technology provides a non-destructive means of learning more about a concrete floor, wall, beam or other structure.
