Application of Geophysics to Civil Engineering

Construction

  • Utility Mapping - Pipes (water, gas, between others) and cables
  • Pavement thickness
  • Reinforcement Bar Locating/ Evaluation
  • Concrete slab thickness
  • Crack, voids, sunken layers
  • Detection of cold joint
  • Distinguish between PVC, metal and wood

Transport   

  • Roads and highways: pavement base/ Sub layer thickness
  • Airport Runaway integrity testing
  • Voids under pavement
  • Railroad Bed profiling
  • Tie elevation
  • Ice roads
  • Buried weapons
  • Tunnels inspections
