|Project||Inspection of the technical state of railway embankment|
|Location||2014 - Creutzwald/Meth, France|
The technical condition of two railway embankments near Metz, France, was investigated by TEXPLOR. The quality of the gravel bed and the dam embankment down to the natural underground was inspected with radar to a depth of 2 – 5 m. The radar measurements with 500 and 100 MHz antennas were carried out with a specially designed hand-car which was pulled manually. The state of the embankment was determined by means of an analysis of the dielectric constant. This value increases with more and more dirt in the gravel.
The general state of the embankment proved to be relatively good, apart from certain areas with greater water accumulations on the surface.
