Ground-Penetrating Radar Detection of the Defects in Tunnel Lining


Article Preview

Because of High-resolution, high accuracy, rapid and efficient, Ground-penetrating radar has been widely used in engineering testing as one of non-destructive evaluation (NDE) methods. Combined with practical work, this paper introduced how to use the ground-penetrating radar in tunnel liner testing, the detection, preferences and waveform analysis, etc.
