Route studies cover all works from pre-construction of engineering structures such as railway, highway, subway, tramway, etc. to periodic examinations after construction. Geophysical methods are of great importance in this type of research. Today, before the construction of such engineering structures, it is necessary to integrate and interpret geological, geophysical and geotechnical studies. Thus, underground problems can be determined in more detail and realistically. In addition, with the periodic geophysical studies to be carried out after the construction, the problems that may arise in the lines over time can be determined in advance.Today, highways, rail systems, under / overpass in ports, Bridge, Viaduct, Retaining / Retaining Wall, Tunnel, Culvert etc. art structures wear out over time due to natural conditions. Degraded zones occur on these structures of great importance and vital problems occur especially in reinforcement systems. Such changes can be detected with the help of high resolution geophysical methods (especially georadar) and thus problems can be eliminated without causing a significant event. Periodic examinations to be made especially on such structures allow to determine the deteriorations on such zones depending on time. By means of these studies, the reinforcement systems in the art structures can be determined in all details and solutions can be put forward before important problems occur.Pipes and cables are important infrastructure elements today. Pipelines that serve as both clean water and wastewater discharge are commonly found under the streets and streets of modern cities. In addition, these systems, in which oil, natural gas and similar energy resources are transported, have an important place in our lives. Fluids leaking from corrosion-induced cracks in these systems can cause significant contamination underground. Therefore, it is important to reveal these problems. It is also of great importance to determine the underground geometries of pipe and cable systems. Geophysics is of great importance in identifying such infrastructures and problems. Especially, georadar applications, which is a method with high separation, is an effective application with sensitive results in determining such infrastructures.Reinforced concrete structures contain a high proportion of metal reinforcement and cement. Making these in accordance with the rules is important for the survival of the building and its behavior during an earthquake. However, sometimes it can cause problems due to the use of insufficient and wrong materials. Especially the corrosion that will occur with the effects of water and moisture in the reinforcement system causes the strength of the structures to decrease. Investigating these decays, which will pose an important problem for the building, with high resolution geophysical techniques, is of great importance today. With the georadar researches to be carried out for these purposes; concrete properties, the location of the metal bars in the reinforcements and whether it is subject to any corrosion, the gaps and cracks and fractures can be determined. In addition, it is possible to inspect the quality status of the reinforcement by examining other negative features that are not seen in the building in terms of location and size.
