heal.abstract Corrosion of airport pavements is a major problem involved with materials engineering and transportation engineering. Airport pavements frequently start to deteriorate slowly primarily, gradually progressing to failure. Such failure can be expensive in terms of both money and lives, but can also be prevented. For that reason, intelligent techniques should be suggested, with the intention of examining the condition of such engineering structures. IR thermography and ground penetrating radar are two NDT (non-destructive testing) techniques that have the ability to inspect effectively substantial areas, such as airport pavements. In this work, two different airport pavements located at the International Airport of Athens, in Greece, were investigated by the use of the above two mentioned techniques. Successful detection of cracks, voids and other imperfections appearing either from the aging of the materials or due to poor workmanship was attained. Furthermore, this paper describes the problem of deteriorated airport pavements, shows the process and the apparatus used for the in situ tests, and finally presents results obtained from the investigations. en
