GROUND PENETRATING RADAR FOR MEASURING PAVEMENT LAYER THICKNESS

This paper describes a new tool that highway agencies and contractors now have for estimating the remaining service life of pavements and selecting the appropriate maintenance and rehabilitation activities. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system can collect pavement layer thickness data quickly, unobtrusively, and inexpensively. Using GPR, pavement management engineers can survey subsurface conditions at a small fraction of the cost of conventional core sampling and gather data for network level pavement management.
