GPRS used a GSSI 1600 MHz Antenna to locate post-tension cables and RD to locate any severed cables and voids. All findings were marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for easy interpretation with pencil and red tape for a no-mess clean up. GPR was needed for this job to inform the customer if there was any air voids or broken/cut post tension cables. Ground Penetrating Radar was successful for an accurate layout of post-tension cables. Radio Detection was successful in determining whether the tendons were severed.
