BridgeScan

BridgeScan
BridgeScan Flexibility
The BridgeScan flexibility allows you to convert the system—
no new data collection software needed. Use the same control
unit for multiple applications.
Concrete Scanning and
Inspection
Use ground penetrating radar to locate embedment
within concrete structures prior to cutting or coring.
Collect quantifiable data on rebar location and areas
of delamination.
Utility Locating and Mapping
Construction professionals, utility locators and
engineers can locate the depth and position of
metallic and non-metallic pipes in real time using
the GSSI UtilityScan. GPR can enhance one’s
overall understanding of subsurface targets and
obstructions.

Complete Bridge Condition
Assessment System
BridgeScan™ is a complete, affordable GPR system
that provides an effective tool for quickly determining
the condition of aging bridge decks, parking structures,
balconies and other concrete structures. The system is
also used to obtain accurate concrete cover depth on new
structures. With BridgeScan, repair costs can be estimated
correctly, saving time and money.

Concrete Cover Assessments
BridgeScan Solutions
The American Society of Civil Engineers reported
that as of 2009, 26% of the nation’s bridges remain
structurally deficient or functionally obsolete
(ASCE, 2009).
Engineers use concrete cover information to
determine if reinforcement bars are protected
from environmental effects.
Transportation infrastructure
professionals use BridgeScan
to identify areas in which the
cover is non-compliant.
Traditional bridge deck inspection methods, like
hammer soundings and chain dragging, rely
on a person to interpret acoustical feedback to
determine good and bad areas of concrete. Existing
asphalt overlays must be removed prior to using
these methods, and results vary depending on the
operator’s technique and interpretation of results.
Assessment data normally consists of areas of the
deck marked simply good or bad.
Engineers and transportation professionals need a reliable
method to collect quantitative data on bridge decks. GSSI’s
BridgeScan is designed for bridge condition assessment,
providing for accurate representation of the bridge data by
automatically accommodating for bridge skew angle.

Ground penetrating radar provides a nondestructive
technique for transportation professionals in
evaluating bridge deck thickness. GPR can obtain
reliable thickness measurements in minutes and
eliminate the need to core.
