To evaluate the concrete for deterioration, a fairly level mat of steel is chosen within the concrete as the base reflection. Areas of the concrete deck that reflect weaker amplitude values tend to indicate deteriorated concrete. These weaker reflections can be due to several factors, including elevated chloride content, concrete degradation or corrosion of the rebar, or a combination of any of these, which all can attenuate the radar signal. The unit utilized to collect the data at the Condominium fountain was the GSSI SIR-3000 unit with the model 5100 antenna. The 5100 antenna is a 1.5 GigaHertz antenna used to collect shallow information in concrete.
