Introduction to Electrical Resistivity Imaging

By Utility Survey Corp. 800-825-9283

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.

Ground Penetrating Radar for Non-Destructive Testing of Concrete

By Utility Survey Corp. 800-825-9283

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.

Where's the Value in Water Leak Detection?

By Utility Survey Corp. 800-825-9283

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. While there is a vague understanding that keeping their water inside of their pipes is more convenient, it is often not a priority, and as long as it's nothing major, we can suffer through a little while longer. After all, next year may be more convenient. Here's a few thoughts that just may get a few Supervisors, CEO's and property owners to take a harder look at their budgets and search their couch cushions a second time for that much needed loose change.

X-Ray vs GPR for Concrete Structure Imaging

By Utility Survey Corp. 800-825-9283

 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.
