Resum
This paper describes the capabilities of a novel technique to investigate crack formation and propagation in drying soils. The technique is a relatively simple, non-destructive indirect technique using a ground-penetrating-radar (GPR) system to detect cracks that form and propagate inside a soil specimen during desiccation. Although GPR devices have been used for multiple applications, their use in soils for the detection of small desiccation cracks has not been demonstrated yet. The experiment ...
