Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is one of the most efficient non-destructive geophysical techniques used for subsurface investigations like detection of buried objects, underground life lines such as water mains, storage tanks and to some extent, void spaces in retaining structures and embankments. Identification of various shear failure surfaces generated due to static or cyclic loading on subgrade soils is very difficult. In this study, 1.6 GHz high frequency antenna has been used to predict the failure patterns of densified sand bed overlying weak subgrade layers in a 1m3 test tank, with and without geocell reinforcement. Radar-grams were generated before and after a repeated traffic load equivalent to the contact pressure of 550 kPa applied on the test bed. The radargrams obtained were analyzed using 3D Vision software for detecting the subsurface deformations.
