Overview

Design and planning new construction requires detailed understanding of the presence and location of potentially conflicting subsurface structures. This case study shows GPR used in the subsurface utility mapping and engineering (SUM/SUE) process for a new transit corridor.

Overview

Verifying the location of buried utilities is a common use of GPR. Gas lines are particularly important targets owing to the dangerous nature of the material carried. In many cases the gas piping is plastic. This study compares use of traditional electromagnetic locating and GPR for a metal gas pipe.

Overview

The current case study involved demonstrating how to use GPR to locate and track a concrete storm sewer. As this example shows, GPR can determine the orientation, depth, slope and diameter of a pipe. GPR's  advantage is greatest when pipes are non-metallic and not readily located with traditional locating devices.

Overview

Planning the location of boreholes is a very common geotechnical problem. This case study illustrates the use of GPR to identify underground obstructions and define clear zones for borehole drilling.
