Paper Abstract

Radar has emerged as a valuable non-destructive test method for evaluating the condition of New Hampshire bridge decks. It allows the inspector to 'see' the top surface of the portland cement concrete deck which is typically covered with asphalt pavement. Radar is also very 'customer friendly' in that it allows inspectors to evaluate the bridge decks without closing travel lanes or otherwise impeding traffic flow in any way. This paper discusses the inspection needs of the New Hampshire Department of Transportation which necessitated the use of radar, as well as a history of its selection, development, and incorporation into New Hampshire's bridge management system.
