Electrical resistivity imaging (ERI) is a non-destructive method for subsurface investigations. Although it’s not as popular as ground penetrating radar (GPR), it has its advantages and can be very useful in some situations.
For non-destructive testing (NDT) of concrete, radiographic inspection (using X-Ray or Gamma ray, etc.) and pachometers (cover meters) are two of the commonly used methods. The disadvantages of radiographic inspection include very strict safety requirements, access to both sides of the concrete, off-site processing, etc. While a pachometer doesn’t have these disadvantages, its precision and resolution might not be acceptable for the required uses.
Did you read our last blog regarding the value of water leak detection?
Can water loss have an effect on more than monetary loss and infrastructure? Yes!
Many municipalities, industries and property owners often cringe at the idea of shaking out a few nickels in their budgets for a proper leak management program.

X-Ray is widely used in medical diagnosis due to its ability to pass through matter and provide high-resolution images. It’s even used in the examination and analysis of paintings because it can reveal such details as the age of a painting and underlying brushstroke techniques that help to identify or verify the artist.
