Bridge Interpretation

Making up part of a utility and structural survey, radar data acquisition was used recently on a bridge to determine the location of utilities and structural elements. In this timeslice animation, observed utilities and manholes up to 14 seconds (1m depth) can clearly be identified.

On the structural side, the arches between seconds 12 and 16 and metallic elements (cast iron) between seconds 6 and 8 are also clearly visible. From this model we can extract parallel and perpendicular sections to analyse structures with different angles.
