3D MICROWAVE IMAGING TECHNOLOGY USING ANTENNA ARRAY FOR DAMAGE ASSESSMENT OF CONCRETE STRUCTURE

3D MICROWAVE IMAGING TECHNOLOGY USING ANTENNA ARRAY FOR DAMAGE ASSESSMENT OF CONCRETE STRUCTURE

Published by Vasily Mikhalev
Various nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques have been studied to locate steel rebars or dowels,
and to detect invisible damage such as voids and cracks inside concrete and debonding between rebars and
concrete caused by corrosions and earthquakes. In this study, 3-dimensional (3D) microwave imaging
technology was developed to detect such damage and to locate steel rebars or dowels. Extending their
earlier analytical work on 2D image reconstruction, the authors have developed an imaging algorithm with
visualization software for reconstructing a 3D volume image. This paper presents a numerical focusing
procedure, which allows the recovery of a 3D object from its scattered field. A multi-frequency technique
was applied in order to improve the quality of the reconstructed image. The effectiveness of the numerical
focusing and the multi-frequency techniques was demonstrated through numerical simulations.
Furthermore, innovative design of the antenna array is described, in which a hybrid approach for network
distribution was used.
