In January 2014, engineering staff from Infrastruct AMS used the new Hilti PS-1000 Ground Penetrating Radar system and the Proceq Profometer 5+ to carry out non-destructive concrete testing on a new retaining wall in the Midlands.

The requirements of the concrete investigation necessitated the use of the PS-1000 GPR system to identify the multiple layers of reinforcement in the outer 300mm and the use of the Profometer 5+ covermeter to determine the concrete cover to reinforcement and estimate the diameter of the reinforcement in the outer 75mm in the wall.

Using both systems we were able to accurately determine the reinforcement layout and confirm the minimum area of reinforcement in the wall without the need for intrusive investigations.
