IPC’s Highway Condition Assessment Inspection
BridgeScan® and roadway condition assessment inspections are designed to assess the condition of the concrete or asphalt cover and
the base and sub-base within the roadway.
* Deterioration level of concrete cover
* Locates voids and loss of density with the fill
* Locates Rebar placement
* Locates water intrusion
* Measures cover thickness
* Locates conduits, pipes and wiring
* Condition of sub base within the roadway
* Can provide amount of material for repairs
* Can provide budgets for repairs
Post construction assessment of concrete including gravel, re-bar placement and cover thickness can not only assure proper construction but create a baseline for future inspections.
IPC’s Inspection Vehicle
A specially outfitted vehicle loaded with ground penetrating radar equipment and internal hardware and results driven interpretation software can travel at 35 mph over the roadway and cover an average of 200 miles per day. No lane closures or heavy equipment.
Quantitative results with easily identifiable actionable items will be provided to the asset owner/department of transportation in a form that they are accustomed.
IPC’s Electromagnetic GPR assessments
can peer 15 feet through the surface of any roadway bridge deck bridge approach way or
IPC GPR is a customized GPR solution tuned over years of research and development specifically for
Electromagnetic image of what good fill looks like under a roadway similar to this bridge. This was a clean abutment backwall, good fill under roadway with no voids.
IPC conducts these inspections for the department of transportation for the same price the DOT currently pays for manual subjective inspections.
* Locate underground utilities.
* Locate uncompacted gravel.
* Determine rebar placement
* Locate water intrusion
* Locate Rebar placement
* Identify debonding
* Locate conduits
