ANALYSIS OF GPR SCANS IN RAVNE TUNNELS
Investigations in Ravne tunnel labyrinth in Visoko, Bosniawere performed with the IDS SpA ground-penetratingradar (GPR) unit, "Detector DUO" on July 22, 2011.This specific GPR unit consists of two transmitting antennas,of which one acts as a receiver. The antennas work at twodifferent frequencies: 200 MHz and 600 MHz, providingdetailed, superior-resolution, easy-to-interpret real-timeresults of both deep and shallow targets.(Fig. 1-2)The GPR “Detect DUO” is distinguished from other models in that a signal already in the phase ofacquisition can be visualized on a computer screen.With this GPR unit, we scanned Ravne tunnel labyrinth after the fill-in material had been removed.We were able to identify separate anomalies of artificial origin which stood out clearly from thenatural geological substrate. The subsoil of Ravne tunnel labyrinth is made of natural rock for themost part stratified in parallel layers, at an angle of approximately 45 degrees.The first artificial anomaly detected in Ravne tunnel labyrinth consists of a double layer situatedapproximately parallel to the existing average grade at a depth ranging from 50 to 80 centimetersbelow grade. The artificial nature of the layer is evident because it intersects the 45-degree-inclinednatural geological strata. However, the specific nature of this anomaly is not able to bedetermined without excavation.
