Description of the service provided

The work was performed to order of Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (RFI) – Direzione Territoriale Produzione, Rome, which commissioned a GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) survey of the structures of the tunnels along the Rome - Cassino line. The ground penetrating radar analysis of the infrastructure allowed assessment of the thickness and state of conservation of the lining and any criticalities relating to holes, zones with varying degrees of deterioration and areas of widespread damp. The sidewalls, waist and crown of both tunnels were investigated, on both the odd and even tracks
