Paper Abstract

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) has been used to evaluate the condition of a group of bridge abutments that were built in the 19th century in New England. Thickness and configuration of the abutments could be determined, and small voids suggesting open joints were detected within the abutments. Use of low and high frequency transducers is recommended in bridge abutment surveys.
