General Depth Calculations, Continued Using Mine Detection Algorithms for Bridge Deck Surface Removal Raw Data Files General Depth Calculations Using Mine Detection Algorithms, Continued North Grand Island Bridge, NY Using Mine Detection Algorithms, Continued Calculation of Dielectric Constant at Surface of Bridge Deck Importance of Dielectric Constant Depth to Rebar Calculations Extraction of Physical Data from Ground Penetrating Radar Bridge Deck Surveys Figure 14: Rebar Region for Depth Calculations • Dielectric consistent influences the speed of electromagnetic waves through a medium • Dielectric steady is basically represented by water content • High or low dielectric constants may show water as well as chloride invasion, solidify defrost harm, delaminations, and additionally scaling • Calculation of dielectric constants along the scaffold deck may demonstrate issue territories General profundity scale ascertained for the center 1000 outputs for the North Grand Island Bridge deck, at 3-feet in the transverse bearing Flatten the ground surface. While applying a general profundity scale, the ground surface is leveled utilizing the movements computed by the CenSSIS Mine Detection calculations. Figure 6: Calculated Rough Ground Surface Calculate the dielectric steady at each deliberate flag on the scaffold deck: Length: 4025 feet Lanes: 2 paths, 12 feet wide every Superstructure: support (initial 3 south traverses) and truss Deck: 9" strengthened solid piece navigate between stringers Rehabilitation Work (1984): 2 creeps of black-top evacuated, 0.25 crawls of solid surface expelled by hydro-pulverization (10% of the deck had expulsion down to beat rebar and full profundity substitution in confined territories), 1.5 inch latex changed solid overlay included (Infrasense, Inc. 2001) An other shading size of Figure 7 is displayed underneath. Take note of that more sub-surface elements get to be distinctly noticeable subsequent to evacuating the ground surface and survey the signs at an alternate shading scale. Figure 1: Air Scan and Average Air Signal Figure 2: Metal Plate Scan and Average Reflection Signal Figure 13: Raw Data with Air Coupling and Ground Surface Removed – General Depth Scale Applied Calculate profundity to rebar for each sweep for higher determination. Distinguish most elevated plentifulness in area where the rebar layer is expected. Compute the speed utilizing the dielectric consistent at the surface (not the normal dielectric steady that was utilized for the general profundity scale). CenSSIS calculation ascertains a normal flag from cross-associating the reference with every crude flag. This normal flag is moved and scaled in view of figured variables to contain the harsh ground surface. CenSSIS calculations were intended to expel mess from harsh ground surfaces to upgrade the location of nonmetallic mines. Here, the calculations are utilized to evacuate mess related with an unpleasant solid surface to improve subsurface components in the solid. (Rappaport et al., 2001)  r2 =  r1 (  +1) 2/(  - 1) 2 (Morey 1998) Where:  r1 = relative dielectric consistent of upper medium (air,  r1 =1)  r2 = relative dielectric steady of lower medium (solid surface) Residual Ground Data Registration Identify the starting & end of the scaffold deck in every information document. Check radar remove estimations against known qualities/highlights. Starting information enrollment performed with joint areas. Last information enlistment is pending receipt of the area of the extension deck starting and closure.

Expected Rebar Region High sufficiency returns staying at the ground level may show regions of scaffold deck joints V c = c/ c Figure 11: Mapping of Dielectric Constant Along the Bridge Deck Where: V c = velocity through cement  c = relative dielectric steady of solid surface (  c = 8.11 ) c = speed of light Calculation of Dielectric Constant at Surface of Bridge Deck Possible Bottom of Deck • Remove air coupling from the crude signs and the metal plate flag, the biggest plentifulness in each follow is thought to be the ground surface. • Calculate the reflection coefficient (  ) by normalizing the pinnacle adequacy in each follow (  follow ) to the pinnacle sufficiency of the metal plate flag (  mp ):  =  follow/ mp Figure 8: Alternate Scale of Raw Data with Air Coupling and Ground Surface Removed Ground Surface Air Coupling Residual Ground Data Collection Information Dielectric steady estimations are at the surface of the extension deck. To figure a general scale for this informational collection, the normal dielectric steady at the solid surface is utilized. This compares to Possible Bottom of Girder Dielectric steady estimations depend on surface scaffold deck estimations. When discovering profundity to rebar, this compares to expecting that the dielectric steady of the solid is consistent from the surface of the solid to the rebar layer. Plausible rebar layer expecting that the dielectric consistent of the solid is equivalent to the normal dielectric steady of the solid at each point all through the whole extension filter record. Figure 7: Raw Data with Air Coupling and Ground Surface Removed Figure 3: Typical Bridge Scan Raw Data Files GPR information was gathered on 22 September 2001 by Infrasense, Inc. Figure 9: Typical Raw Signal with Air Coupling Removed Figure 15: Depth to Rebar Layer Figure 10: Metal Plate Signal with Air Coupling Removed Ground surface is subtracted from the crude information with air coupling expelled. Swoon layers appear to show up at roughly follow (vertical scale) focuses 150, 275, and 400. Two abnormalities emerge at the ground level at roughly 50 and 325 feet. These might be joints in the extension deck. Figure 5: Raw Data with Air Coupling Removed Figure 12: Trace Point to Depth Comparison Avg. Profundity to rebar for center 1000 sweeps of 3-foot transverse pass: 3.66 inches (3.67 inches barring deck joints) Infrasense, Inc. reports normal 3.5" profundity to rebar over whole scaffold Heejeong Shin & FNU Brawijaya (RPI) report a normal of 3.299" profundity to rebar for the whole 3-foot transverse pass Probable deck joints  mp Apply general profundity scale to Raw Data with Air Coupling and Ground Surface Removed.

The ground surface is referenced to profundity zero. Sub-surface profundity estimations are sure. Conceivable base of deck at 11"*. Connect investigation information demonstrates a 9" thick profundity with 1.5" overlay, an aggregate of 10.5". Conceivable base of brace at 19"* demonstrates a 8" tall support which appears to be sensible. Plausible rebar layer at 3.6"*. Infrasense, Inc. reports a normal rebar profundity of 3.5" along the whole extension deck. * Depths approximated from general profundity scale Longitudinal Distance (feet)  follow Air coupling is evacuated. Ground Surface C-pivot scale for Figures 1, 2 & 3 It is critical to recall the accompanying data about these counts: • Dielectric constants demonstrated are just for the SURFACE of the extension deck. • Dielectric steady estimations are taken at 3-foot interims transversely. Matlab's form work interjects between estimations. • Alignment of the transverse layers depends on joint area until extra information enlistment data is accessible.
