Advanced Approaches For Bridge Deck Assessment Using Ground Penetrating Radar, Aleksey Kamilevich Khamzin Jan 2015

Advanced Approaches For Bridge Deck Assessment Using Ground Penetrating Radar, Aleksey Kamilevich Khamzin

Doctoral Dissertations

"Ground penetrating radar (GPR) data were acquired across four bridge decks with the objective of developing an advanced workflow for GPR operation that would allow the bridge owners to estimate repair quantities for certain bridge decks, based on GPR data. The primary contributions from this research are as follows: 1. It was demonstrated that the conditions of bridge decks can be cost-effectively and efficiently assessed using the GPR tool. 2. The GPR tool's ability to provide rapid and reliable results in comparison with conventional bridge deck condition assessment techniques was established. 3. The qualitative and quantitative relationships between the ...


Non-Destructive And Destructive Bridge Deck Condition Assessment, Aleksandra V. Varnavina Jan 2015

Non-Destructive And Destructive Bridge Deck Condition Assessment, Aleksandra V. Varnavina

Doctoral Dissertations

"The dissertation is composed of three papers, which cover the lack of information on the specific aspects of non-destructive and destructive bridge deck assessment.

In the first paper, appropriate data acquisition and processing parameters for concrete bridge deck condition assessment using ground-coupled ground penetrating radar are developed. The use of proposed parameters helps to significantly reduce acquisition and processing time, while providing engineers with reliable and detailed information on the condition of bridge deck.

In the second paper, a novel approach to develop relationship between GPR data and concrete removal depth measurements collected after hydrodemolition is proposed. A linear relationship ...
