Investigation of the Extended Use of Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) for Measuring In-Situ Material Quality Characteristics

The objective of this project is to: (1) investigate the extended use of Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) for measuring in-situ material quality characteristics such as density and air voids; (2) compare the accuracy of density or air voids measured by GPR with conventional methods; and (3) investigate methods of incorporating GPR measured material quality characteristics into current quality control systems and the possibility of replacing partial conventional quality control tests.
