Prediction of the Pavement Devaluation Based on the Repeated GPR Measurements

Today, a considerably large emphasis is put on pavement diagnostic methods which are non-invasive, simple, safe, time efficient and non-intrusive from the viewpoint of interference with the traffic flow of a particular road. It is important to know how the road construction behaves when it is loaded by traffic and how its degradation evolves. For this purpose a test field with real road construction was built. The main aim of the test field is to simulate traffic load in laboratory conditions. From this point of view, it is very convenient to use the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) method in terms of the pavement and road investigation. At the beginning, two Horn antennas were used with central frequencies of 1 GHz and 2 GHz on the test field to verify its construction and to map its state of the art. Secondly, the same configuration was carried out for the repeated measurements to examine damage caused by the simulated traffic load. In the last step, the prediction of the test field degradation was evaluated. Here, the first 3D measurement is presented.
