This meeting will involve the Members of Working Group 4 of COST Action TU1208, "Civil engineering applications of Ground Penetrating Radar" (www.GPRadar.eu, www.cost.eu).
This Working Group (WG) focuses on various applications of the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and on its joint use with different non-destructive testing techniques.
During the meeting, WG4 Members will discuss how to carry out their activities during the second year of the Action's lifetime. In particular, they will discuss research priority needs and future directions on the following topics:
4.1) Applications of GPR and other non-destructive testing methods in archaeological prospecting and cultural heritage diagnostics.
4.2) Advanced application of GPR to the localization and vital signs detection of buried and trapped people.
4.3) Applications of GPR in association with other non-destructive testing methods in surveying of transport infrastructures.
4.4) Applications of GPR in association with other non-destructive testing methods in building assessment and in geological/geotechnical tasks.
4.5) Development of other advanced electric and electromagnetic methods for the characterization of construction materials and structures.
4.6) Applications of GPR in association with other non-destructive testing methods in the management and protection of water resources..
Members of Working Groups 1, 2 and 3 are of course welcome to the meeting, their contribution will be very useful and appreciated.
