Forced Resonance Imaging for 3-D Mapping of Buried Gas Pipes

The project will field-test and fine-tune the technology and develop the software used to detect buried plastic gas pipelines, collect three-dimensional (3-D) location information with increased accuracy, and provide additional information on pipe diameter by 3-D mapping or volumetric image reconstructions.
