Interpretation of Pipe Networks by Magnetic Sensing
The imaging and sizing of buried pipes in soil or steel rods in concrete has wide utility. The accurate detection of embedded reinforcement is useful to enforce the correct placement of steel in new concrete, and is even more important in assessing as-built structures. Rebar mapping is essential in post-construction operations such as coring and anchor emplacement in nuclear power plants. Pipe mapping is invaluable to the excavation and repair of utility distribution systems.
