1.1.This recommended practice would provide guidance to the highway engineer in the application of non-contact ground penetrating radar to transportation facilities.

It is intended to instruct the engineer as to the specific  uses of non-contact radar for pavement layer thickness surveys,  quality control of new pavement

construction, evaluation of granular base material, identifying zones of asphalt stripping,  and assessment of bridge decks.

GPR has numerous applications for the transportation  industry,  but at this time requires extensive training in its use and interpretation of the data output, as well

as experience in local pavement conditions.
