  3. 3. Earlier systems for locating underground piping used metal detectors, but this required the pipes to be made of metal. With the use of pipes made of PVC or HDPE gaining a lot of prominence, metal detectors were not found to be useful, and hence the greater use of ground penetrating radar.

  4. 4. This enables all the obstacles to any activity to be known in advance, and assists in planning of operations, so that time is rarely wasted, and the digging to reach the location limited to very precise locations. More info on: http://concretescanning.atlg.com.au/brisbane/
  5. 5. The equipment that helps ground penetrating radar transmits sound waves of very high frequency, which can penetrate ground to several feet below and concrete of some thicknesses. These sound waves then bounce back to the receiver that is part of this equipment. More info on: http://concretescanning.atlg.com.au/brisbane/
  6. 6. This gives information of the depth to which the sound waves have reached, and the density of the materials that are hidden from view. The equipment is calibrated so that is can create a detailed map of the utilities which are hidden. More info on: http://concretescanning.atlg.com.au/brisbane/
  7. 7. There is virtually no limit to the utility of this form of radar equipment, and besides detecting pipelines and other utilities running below ground or concrete slabs, it has been of great help to archaeologists who can identify the existence of objects below ground.

  8. 8. Geologists use it to identify the various types of soils below ground. Engineers use it to penetrate concrete slab to judge the rebar within the concrete and find it very useful as a form of nondestructive testing, when the structural capability of buildings is in doubt.

  9. 9. Ground penetrating radar equipment is expensive and sophisticated and requires the technicians using it to be very well trained. Ensure that any company that you hire for this work has the right technology, trained staff and the experience in carrying out the type of work you want them to do.
