Ground Profiling & Void Detection

Voids or pseudo-Karst formations give rise to ground settlements and collapses. Where these geological features occur below roads and buildings, unacceptable risk to property and life exist.

Poor ground conditions often occur as a result of failed or damaged pipeline or tunnel structures where fine soils from the embedment are washed into these underground networks.  When this occurs, the pipe or tunnel support is compromised and collapses and failures occur, sometimes resulting in tragic consequences.

The application of the Wave Impedence (WIP) technology can map these formations from above or within the underground network, identifying where such embedment weaknesses occur.

This allows for timely remediation of naturally occurring or induced phenomena.
