Question
Hi Dear BEH,

I need to do some drilling in the already casted RCC column. Is there any instrument by which we can get the re-bar layout of the casted RCC and the how much is the cover etc. I need to get the picture of the rebars in that area so that I can avoid hitting the rebar.

warm regards,
Sudarshan

Answer
Dear sudarshan

Of course there exists some sonography instruments to trace the arrangement of bars inside concrete like what is getting done on human body to scan the inner problems. Have a look on the Internet and specially Hilty products.
